Vale Dr John Hogg – Mawson 1969
Emeritus Professor John OAM.
10.1.1943 – 1.3.2013
Dr John Hogg passed away at his home in Wollongong surrounded by his loving family, after a short and brave battle with Metastatic Melanoma.
“A gentleman beyond all description”, his loss will be felt by many from old school mates, fellow Antarctic expeditioners, by patients, colleagues, students, friends and family.
He made an outstanding contribution to the practice of medicine in the Illawarra over the past three decades culminating in his pivotal role in the establishment of the Graduate School of Medicine, at the University of Wollongong.
The University has generously offered to host a Memorial Service to provide an opportunity to honour his memory.
The Memorial Service will be held at Wollongong University Hall, on Saturday April 6, 2013 at 2 p.m.
