In this very brief introductory chapter I pay tribute to Anthony and give a little of his background, family and upbringing. I briefly outline his education and schooling. I describe a few of his research results. Anthony was an early champion of Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic (SPH) calculations, particularly in the UK. His interactions with the Cambridge group, and subsequent spawning of many theoretical groups in this area, are part of his lasting legacy in the field of theoretical star formation.
