Death of Alan Renouf (1919-2008)

I wanted to note the death of Alan Renouf so that I did not lose the link.

A former head of the Department of Foreign Affairs, Mr Renouf was one of those public intellectuals that used to be not un-common in the Commonwealth Public Service. I did not know him personally; he was already a senior figure when I first arrived in Canberra.

His daughter was one of the speakers at the Women on Boards conference dinner that I went to last Thursday night, the day his obituary appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald.
