The Club has suffered a grievous loss in the untimely death on 19th August of Marjorie Wilson after a long illness born stoically from sudden onset until the end. Mrs Wilson came to Hobart in 1945 when her husband Mr. G. T. Wilson, was appointed to the History Department. From surviving records covering recent years only, it is plain that Mrs Wilson served the club conspicuously; she was president from 1960-62 and again in 1964-65, a Committee Member in 1967-68 and Vice-President for the year ending in June of this year. Her good humour and tolerance, allied with firmness of principle and well-balanced judgment made her an invaluable office bearer and, over the years, endeared her to her many friends among University women. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to Mr Wilson of Hytten Hall and his family in their bereavement.
