CAMD congratulates Mary-Louise Williams, former Director of the Australian National Maritime Museum (ANMM) who was awarded an AM in the Australia Day Honours list.  Mary-Louise was Director of the ANMM for over ten years and an active member of CAMD’s Executive comittee until her retirement in 2011 .  She was awarded the AM for her significant service to the museum sector and the preservation of maritime history.

Also recognised in the Honours list was Dr Mike Smith, a Senior Research Fellow at the National Museum of Australia (NMA).  Dr Smith, who has spent the last 30 years reconstructing the environmental and Aboriginal histories of Australia’s arid interior, was recognised for his significant service to archaeological scholarship, particularly of the Australian desert regions.
