The Academy in the news: a visit from ABC Canberra

The Academy received a visit from ABC Canberra this week to help celebrate our golden anniversary, marking 50 years since our creation by Royal Charter from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on 25 June 1969.

Former Academy President Professor Malcolm Gillies AO FAHA, Honorary Secretary Emeritus Professor Elizabeth Minchin FAHA and co-recipient of the 2018 Crawford Medal Dr Raihan Ismail were all on hand to share insights into the Academy’s past and present and to discuss the Academy’s vision for a humanised future.
