The Bill Tutte Memorial Fund

The Bill Tutte Memorial Fund has been set up to raise funds to provide a lasting memorial to one of Newmarket's unsung heroes.

Interest has been expressed in the project from around the country and from as far afield as Canada, where Bill Tutte lived and died after the war.

Objectives

  • To provide a lasting memorial to Bill Tutte that will enhance the environment in Newmarket, the town of his birth.

  • To promote public interest and education in the work of Bill Tutte, particularly his achievements as a code breaker at Bletchley Park during World War II.

  • To encourage young people in Newmarket to study and excel in mathematics and/or computer science by the provision of a school prize or scholarship fund in Bill Tutte’s name.
