Opening of Graeme Philipson Library
3 June 2022 - Sydney
Last year the IT community was shocked by the accidental death of journalist, author, poet and historian, Graeme Philipson. Graeme's extensive library of publications related to IT has now been donated to the Australian Computer Museum Society (ACMS) where Graeme was the President for many years.
On June 3, 2022, the keynote address at the opening of the Philipson Library will be presented by Dr Peter Thorne AM. Peter is Chair of the Heritage Committee here at the Pearcey Foundation. Full details available on ACMS website www.acms.org.au At the time of his death, Graeme Philipson and Peter were working closely together on a major work: a definitive history of Australia and Australians in the Digital Age.
Graeme was also a major participant in the on-going joint research project between the Pearcey Foundation and staff in the Business School at the University of Sydney. The project entails studying the past and future of Australian innovations in ICT, calling upon the experience and achievements of notable Australians who have previously been recognised and awarded by the Pearcey Foundation.
