Vale – Rodney Davidson AO OBE

On behalf of the members and staff, the Board of the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) expresses its deep sorrow at the passing of Rodney Davidson AO, OBE.

Rodney played a crucial part in building the National Trust movement in both Victoria and in Australia. His work as Chair (1965 to 1982) and then President of the Trust in Victoria, and his subsequent contribution to the Australian Council of National Trusts made an enormous impact on the preservation of our national heritage.

He remained a deeply committed supporter of the National Trust up until the time of his passing.

We acknowledge an enduring debt to Rodney for his achievements and extend our condolences to his family.
