John Conrad Jaeger was Professor of Geophysics at the Australian National University 1951-1972. He had previously been Lecturer in Mathematics and subsequently Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Tasmania 1935-1951. He achieved fame as an applied mathematician, especially through his books and his teaching; Conduction of Heat in Solids alone would have ensured continuing international recognition. Then he became one of the major moving forces in solid-earth geophysics and geochemistry in Australia, founding a school of high international standing and making important contributions in geothermal studies and rock mechanics.

Born Sydney, 30 July 1907. Died Canberra, 15 May 1979. Educated Universities of Sydney (BSc 1928) and Cambridge (BA 1930). Research scholar, Trinity College, Cambridge 1931-35; Lecturer in Mathematics, University of Tasmania 1936-44, Senior Lecturer 1944-48, Associate Professor 1949-50, Professor of Applied Mathematics 1950-51; Physicist, CSIR Radiophysics Laboratory 1942-45; Professor of Geophysics, Australian National University 1951-72. Fellow, Australian Academy of Science 1954, Fellow, Royal Society 1970.
