BiographyHistory

'Humanist, rationalist, civil libertarian, public servant, b. Vienna, Austria. The descendant of four Jewish grandparents. Neither of his parents had any great religious interests, though his mother had been Catholic from birth. The annexation of Austria led to his flight to England, internment in the UK and Australia, service in the non-combatant part of the Australian Army, further education at Melbourne University and a lifetime employment in the Australian Public Service. Transferred to Canberra in 1961. In the late 60s came across the Humanist Society of Canberra and thereafter continually an office bearer including President and delegate to CAHS. Campaigned with fellow-humanist Geraldine Spencer to have the census question of religion changed to read: "no religion, write none". Contributor to Humanist journals and newsletters. Active in civil liberties, human rights and voluntary euthanasia organisations.' (Source: Ray Dahlitz, Secular Who Is Who, 1968, p.155-156)
