Today we regretfully farewelled a long-term volunteer, former Councillor, and Fellow of the RHSV, Judith Bilszta. Past President Professor Weston Bate gave an appreciation of the many talents and great contribution of Judith for over 30 years. Several retired volunteers came to enjoy hearing Judith deservedly praised, as well as the many current volunteers, and past and present Councillors. We hope we will still see plenty of her at our regular functions and events.
The Royal Historical Society of Victoria was formed in 1909 and is a community organisation committed to collecting, researching and sharing an understanding of the history of Victoria.
With the support of a large number of volunteers, the RHSV provides a full program of activities (e.g. lectures, seminars, excursions and exhibitions) for the benefit of members and the general public. The Society publishes a bi-monthly newsletter, a reviewed journal and books of historical interest.
