On his return to the UK, Frank was appointed by AlbertGreen to the staff of the Mathematics Department at thenewly created University of Newcastle. In October 1968 they moved to Glasgow, and Frank began work in the Department of Mathematics at Strathclyde University. He was to spend the rest of his life there.
