Bob Hawke will be deservedly remembered among Australians, and indeed the global community, not only as a politician of great talent and principle, but as a man who was passionate about community and consensus, the economy, education, environmental issues, equality – and the promotion of an inclusive and diverse community, global initiatives, social justice, not to mention beer, cricket and the America's Cup.
Memorial Book A Memorial Book is now available for people to sign in the Hawke Centre's Kerry Packer Civic Gallery, UniSA City West Campus. Bob is sure to be remembered as a 'man of the people' - and people are urged to share their special memories of him.
The Memorial Book will be available for signing over the next few months, giving the opportunity for members of the public and the University of South Australia's staff and students to record their personal tributes.
Send Your Message For those unable to visit the gallery, living interstate or overseas, please send your message via email to HawkeCentre-Events@unisa.edu.au and it will be included in the Memorial Book.
