Vale John Hirst

It is with sadness that the AHA notes the passing of Emeritus Scholar Dr John Hirst. He will be remembered for his spirit as a public intellectual, his ongoing curiosity and passion as a historian and for his generosity as a supervisor, mentor and colleague.

La Trobe University pays their respects and many newspapers have carried obituaries, including the Sydney Morning Herald.

The AHA extends its condolences to Dr Hirst’s family and friends.
