Supporter Sally White
Sally White's association with the Australian Science and Technology Heritage Centre (formerly the Australian Science Archives Project) dates back to the late 1980s with the donation of her husband's records to the University of Melbourne Archives. ASAP processed the records, with valuable input and guidance from Sally, and published a detailed guide to the collection.
She was very enthusiastic about the work of ASAP in helping to ensure that the intellectual and cultural contributions made by scientists to our society were not overlooked. On her death in August 1998, she left a bequest to the Centre to help us continue our work in helping to preserve and make accessible the archives and artefacts of our scientific heritage.
The bequest will be used to upgrade the Guide to the Records of M.J.D. White, establish a Bright Sparcs entry for Sally White, collect new bibliographic information on Michael White, Sophie Ducker, Ken Key, Otto Frankel, and establish an Australian Science at Work entry for the Genetics Society of Australia.
