FOR PRESS 13 SEPTEMBER 1978
SIR WILLIAM HUDSON
Sir William Hudson's term of office as Commissioner of the
Snowy Mountains Authority from 1949 to 1967, was an outstanding
achievement. Starting from virtually nothing, Sir William built up and
led an organisation responsible for Australia's biggest
engineering project.
The Snowy brought world-wide acclaim to Australia and stands
as a fitting and lasting memorial to Sir William.
As well as being one of the foremost members of the Civil
Engineering profession, Sir William was a great leader. He
welded together and inspired a highly efficient workforce
recruited from many parts of the world. He will be
affectionately remembered by all who worked with him.
I extend my sympathy to Lady Hudson and her family.
