Abstract: Dr Treloar, members of the Anderson family, distinguished guests: We are here tonight to honour the memory of Professor Gordon Anderson. It gives me great happiness to have this opportunity of acknowledging in the presence of Gordon's children, Heather, Jenny, and Jon Anderson, who are here with us tonight, that the memory of Gordon's amazingly generous contribution of his manifold skills and his loyal support to The University of New England was a sustaining strength for me during all the subsequent years when he was no longer here in person. I would like to quote briefly from the beautiful oration delivered by Berenice Roberts, then the President of the students' musical society called Mussoc, and now Berenice Scott, for many years a member of the Dixson Library and now Copyright Officer for The University of New England, at Gordon's funeral on Friday 3 July, 1981, because these words are just as current now as they were then:... ... I would also like to mention the strong support and incredibly warm hospitality, to me and to many others, of Gordon's wife, Laurel, who died in January this year.
