About the Vincent Briscoe Lecture
The Vincent Briscoe Lecture is the annual lecture from the Institute for Security Science and Technology, Imperial College London, named in honour of Professor H.V.A. Briscoe (b.1888, d.1961). Vincent Briscoe was a distinguished inorganic chemist in the Department of Chemistry (1932 – 1954).

During his war work he explored the chemistry of thorium and the rare earths as well as working on a number of secret projects. In his book, Defence of the Realm, Professor Christopher Andrew credits Briscoe with providing the first independent scientific advice to MI5, in 1915, on the subject of secret German writing. Service records indicate Briscoe's continuing assistance throughout the inter-war years and during and after the Second World War.
