A Well-Deserved Retirement

Australia's best-known and likable aviculturists, Graeme Hyde of Elliminyt, Victoria, stepped down recently as secretary of the 2,000-strong Avicultural Society of Australia (ASA)

By Ian Hinze

One of Australia's best-known and likable aviculturists, Graeme Hyde of Elliminyt, Victoria, stepped down recently as secretary of the 2,000-strong Avicultural Society of Australia (ASA) after an "18-year inning." Following a re-organization of the committee and office bearer's duties at the beginning of 1983, Graeme became the only fifth secretary to the society in 42 years. Although the ASA has maintained a constant membership of around 2,000, it had a membership of double that back in 1983 but, in line with the worldwide trend, this eventually dropped and then leveled off.

In recognition of his sterling service, the committee organized an ASA Avi-award — Outstanding Category — for services to the society. The Avi-awards are only awarded upon a nomination. A sub-committee recommends that an award is presented, and the Society Committee endorses it.

Hyde is continuing as editor of the Society's monthly journal, Australian Aviculture. The March 2001 issue will be his 300th consecutive monthly edition.
