Ray Specht honoured
The Society is delighted that Life Member Prof Ray Specht has been honoured in the Australia Day awards with the title of Order of Australia. The official citation catalogues some of Prof Specht’s achievements during a remarkable career of more than 70 years of active research, commencing with the 1948 international expedition to Arnhem Land. (See photo of the young Ray Specht preparing for that journey). A summary of his research is included in a “Retrospective” on this website. Congratulations Prof Specht.
