two & sixpence

Published by the University of Western Australia Student Guild, Perth.

Two & sixpence: A Student Century commemorated the centenary of university student life in Western Australia. My role as editor involved finding writers for chapters; sourcing photographs; writing material myself; and running a careful eye over the entire compilation.

As a graduate of UWA, it was a wonderful opportunity to revisit my own student days as well as investigating what had gone before I was an undergraduate in the 1960s. It was also a chance to discover how the Guild had progressed in the last half a century.

The book is not a serious chronology. It is more a collection of facts, quotes and anecdotes.
