Former ASOPA lecturer (1965-71) Roy Clark writes about visiting the School’s long-serving Registrar, Vic Parkinson, at his retirement home in Orange. Vic is 90 and, despite indifferent health, remains vitally interested in world and local affairs. Vic, of course, was a distinguished Mayor of Mosman and President of the National Trust of NSW, positions he held while serving at ASOPA.
Roy says: “After we got over the hellos and the quick description of his symptoms he rapidly got on to the state of the world... He was espousing some of the same remedies I have heard Kevin Rudd mention recently. We covered a lot for a half hour talk and he seemed to enjoy the company and a chance to tell me some of his ideas. Vic asked about former ASOPA people and I am sure he would appreciate a card, a note or even an email.” You can contact Vic at Ascot Gardens, 83 Spring Street, PO Box 8090, Orange NSW 2800 or email him via this address.
