AFSAAP would like to acknowledge and celebrate the life and contributions of Professor Anthony Low. He was AFSAAP’s First president 1978-1981, and made an invaluable contribution to African Studies, and the academy. In the Australasian Review of African Studies, Vol 34 No 2 December 2013, David Lucas wrote about Anthony Low’s ‘Retirement’ from research. At the 2012 AFSAAP Conference held in Canberra, we also celebrated his contribution to AFSAAP. You can see in this photo, from the front Professor Low, his wife Isobel, his son in law Matthew Neuhaus, and his grand daughter, with Tanya Lyons AFSAAP’s current president acknowledging his life’s achievements. AFSAAP sends sincere condolences to Anthony’s family at this time, and would like to thank them for supporting his achievements in African Studies.
