Turing 95

Turing statue

On 19 June 2007 Bletchley Park unveiled a statue of Alan Turing. The press release failed to mention that Turing was gay and treated very badly after the war, which led to his suicide at the age of 41. If he had lived he would be 95 today.

[Edit Note: Bletchley Park has now amended the original press release - 27 June]
