Stuart Macintyre was recruited to Murdoch University by Geoffrey Bolton in 1976 and worked with him on the Oxford History of Australia. His most recent publication is Australias Boldest Experiment: War and Reconstruction in the 1940s and he has currently exchanged chocolates for boiled lollies with a study of what has happened to Australias universities. Jenny Gregory co-authored Claremont: a History with Geoff and remains grateful for his generosity towards a junior colleague who had criticised his view of Western Australias interwar years. Her research focuses on urban history and heritage, but her most recent book is Seeking Wisdom: A Centenary History of the University of Western Australia. Lenore Layman enjoyed being a colleague of Geoff Bolton at Murdoch University. She has most recently published Blood Nose Politics: A Centenary History of the WA National Party, worked on the Australian Asbestos Network website on the health disaster of asbestos use in Australia, and is currently busy on a variety of community history projects.
