Letters to the editor
As a member of the alumni of the University of Adelaide I am always pleased to read my copy of Lumen. However I was especially delighted by the latest edition (winter 2015).
It brought back many happy memories of my years as a university student when I read the contribution from Samela Harris, with whom I commenced law studies in 1964, and her references to our fellow law students Piers Plumridge, John Waters (all editors of the excellent On Dit) and John Bannon, and when I saw her photograph taken in 1965.
My pleasure was augmented by reading of the honorary Doctorate of Laws awarded to another fellow 1964 law student, Robert Hill and by reading, and seeing the photograph, of Dr Claire Woods. I had the good fortune to meet the delightful Claire in our rehearsals and appearances together in Adelaide University Footlights revues.
Lumen’s articles illustrate the successes of its graduates and that the University of Adelaide, established in 1874 and the third oldest university in Australia, has been and continues to be a leader in tertiary education. Sub cruce lumen. Regards, Lou Crotti LLB
