Bill Tutte

“We should never forget how lucky we were to have men like Professor Tutte in our darkest hour and the extent to which their work not only helped protect Britain itself but also shorten the war by an estimated two years, saving countless lives” – David Cameron

Bill Tutte achieved one of the greatest intellectual feats of World War Two by breaking the extremely complex Lorenz code without ever seeing the machine that generated it.

The Bill Tutte Memorial Fund was established to commemorate this achievement and to raise awareness of Tutte’s contributions to the fields of code breaking and mathematics.
