Paper Abstract

The death (in April this year) of professor Marian Misowicz, a great physicist and a great man saddened all those who knew him. He offered me his friendship many years ago and although twenty years my senior he always treated me like his equal. I admired and respected him. As it is generally known ca. 60 years ago he discovered the phenomenon of viscosity anisotropy in liquid crystals. Then he turned to another field and became a high energy physicist. But his passion for the old subject of interest was strong enough to encourage me to undertake the study of liquid crystals when I was young. I am grateful to him for this. Below you will find some very personal memories from the years of our friendship.
