Vale Bob Hawke

By Curtin Library 17 May 2019 Library Services JCPML News & events 1 Comment »

The John Curtin Prime Ministerial Library pays tribute to Bob Hawke, Australia’s longest serving Labor Prime Minister. Bob Hawke will always be remembered by the JCPML for the support he provided in the early days of the campaign to establish this library in the memory of another great Australian Prime Minister, John Curtin.

We extend our condolences to his wife, Blanche D’Alpuget, children Sue, Steve and Ros, and grandchildren.

    Its a pity that this university doesn’t actually believe in the principles of its namesake. I can honesty say it doesn’t believe in free speech, and innovation. If a world war two was revisited, I have no doubt whatsoever, in my conclusion as to which side the academic administrators loyalties would intrinsically fall under.
    I met Bob Hawke on two occasions, he was a wonderful human being, an exponent of free speech and ideas, in the same sense that John Curtin was. One of Australia’s all times greats.
    God bless,
