Vale Marjorie Dewhurst
The Committee of the SMBE Vic wishes to express its condolences to the Family of Marjorie who passed away last month in her hundredth year.
Marjorie was the wife of the late David J Dewhurst, our mentor and teacher in biomedical engineering in Australia and Internationally.
Marjorie is fondly remembered for her support of the Society over the years, particularly in the organisation of conferences and events.
Marjorie was the Social Committee Chairman for the 1971 World Conference of the IFMBE at the University of Melbourne and greatly contributed to the success of this event which became famous throughout the world of biomedical engineering as the friendly conference. Who could forget Marjorie organising the Welcoming Function drinks in the Anatomy Museum in the Medical School, University of Melbourne.
