Bill Wright 1937 – 2021

Updated: Aug 4

From Bruce Gillispie via LynC:

Very sad news. Bill Wright, stalwart of Australian fandom since the late 1950s, died recently in the Alfred Hospital.

He had recently undergone surgery, returned home, then rang to say that he had fallen at home.

Thanks very much to his sister Rosemary for telling us the sad news.
