world changing computer made by Alan Turing

Alan Mathison Turing, a British mathematician,logician cryptanalyst, philosopher, pioneering computer scientist, mathematical biologist, and marathon and ultra distance runner, born 23 June 1912.

At Sherborne, Turing formed an important friendship with fellow pupil Christopher Morcom, which provided inspiration in Turing's future endeavours. However, the friendship was cut short by Morcom's death in February 1930 from complications of bovine tuberculosis contracted after drinking infected cow's milk some years previously. This event shattered Turing's religious faith. He became an atheist. He believed that all phenomena, including the workings of the human brain, must be materialistic,while maintaining a belief that the spirit survives after death.

On 8 June 1954, Turing's housekeeper found him dead. He had died the previous day. A post-mortem examination established that the cause of death was cyanide poisoning. When his body was discovered, an apple lay half-eaten beside his bed, and although the apple was not tested for cyanide, it was speculated that this was the means by which a fatal dose was consumed. An inquest determined that he had committed suicide, and he was cremated on 12 June 1954. Turing's ashes were scattered there, just as his father's had been.
