Yet another remarkable woman who I had the good fortune to work with at Women’s College has died. Associate Professor Margaret Sabine according to the obit in the Sydney Morning Herald was the cat virus kingpin. Mostly though I remember her as dispensing sage advice on the Principal’s balcony at Friday drinks. If this sounds all very pucker and upper class twit like, well yes there certainly was the opportunity to engage in that sort of thing, but Margaret was not that sort of person. If she thought an action foolish, or a person a fool, she kept it to herself. Nonetheless if you asked an opinion or for guidance she gave you wise counsel. It is sad to dust off this blog to farewell Margaret.
