Vale Harvey Brown

Dear members,

It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of one of the great NZ Branch of ANZSPD’s past members and Honorary Life Member, Harvey Brown (aged 90 years). Harvey was an active and hard-working member of The New Zealand Society of Dentistry for Children which joined with the Australian group to become ANZSPD in the late 1980s.  He was on the committee from 1956 to 1990, serving as President from 1968-69, and again in 1984-88. Harvey was also Secretary-Treasurer from 1956-57 and 1990. He was a great historian and his history of the NZ Branch can be found here: ANZSPD – The first 40 Years by Harvey Brown
