Vale Emeritus Professor Colin Anfield Hughes, 1930-2017

Paul Reynolds has composed an obituary for his former University of Queensland colleague, and inaugural Commissioner of the Australian Electoral Commission, Emeritus Professor Colin A. Hughes, who passed away on 30 June 2017.

‘Colin retired from academic and public life in 1999, but continued to advise, supervise and be an inspiration for those who sought him out. Always a modest, if not shy man, Colin was the last of the great generalist scholars, someone to whom the adjective ‘erudite’ could truly be bestowed.’
