Vale ~ David Hickson

It is with much sadness that we advise of the passing of David Hickson on 19 February 2011, at his home in Walkaway, after a long illness.

Many Western Australian ALIA members will remember David from his time at Riverton Library where he was a mentor, and inspiration to staff and colleagues throughout the state. He was also very involved in planning for the Alexander Library building. He enjoyed a long and happy retirement in Walkaway, where he continued to support the Geraldton Regional Library. He will be sadly missed.

David was awarded Fellow of the Library Board of Western Australia.  This citation gives a much broader picture of his career in libraries and the great contribution he made to the Western Australian library scene over many years.
