Vale ~ John Merewether

John Merewether, one of the State Library of NSW volunteers, supporters and benefactors died late last week after being in ill health for some time.

John had a special affection for and devotion to the Library. He was very proud of his family heritage and relationships with David Scott Mitchell, who was his great-great uncle. In 2007, the centenary year of David Scott Mitchell's bequest, John gave a most generous benefaction to establish two annual fellowships, the David Scott Mitchell Fellowship and the Merewether Scholarship for the study of Australian and New South Wales history.
