Christopher Strachey, 1916-1975: A Biographical Note
January-March 1985 (vol. 7 no. 1)
pp. 19-42

Christopher Strachey was one of the most original computer scientists of his generation: his fields were computer design and programming, and he made important contributions to them both. He liked to say (not quite accurately) that he had changed the direction of his career every seven years. The different phases of his life and career are reflected in the five sections of this note.
