The Club regrets to advise the passing of Hugh Oldham, Geophysicist, Macquarie Island 1951, Mawson 1955.

email from Douglas Finlayson

Hugh Oldham died recently in Canberra. I think he was a geophysicist at Mawson at the beginning of the International Geophysical Year 1955. Is there any record of the history of Mawson Base at that time? Any suggestions about where that history might be held?
