Vale Emeritus Professor Peter Boyce

It is with great sadness that U3A Hobart records the death of our Patron, Peter Boyce on 7th August 2021. Peter was one of our favourite tutors for a number of years, giving us excellent courses on a range of topics including Australian Government and Politics, History, and International Affairs. He became our Patron in 2016.
Peter first came to Hobart from Duke University (USA) in 1962 and he had many happy memories from that time. Peter held academic appointments in four Australian universities, including the chair of political science, first at the University of Queensland and then at the University of Western Australia.
From 1985 to 1996 he served as Vice-Chancellor of Murdoch University, following which he was awarded visiting fellowships at two Oxford colleges. He then became Adjunct Professor in the University of Tasmania’s Politics and International Relations Programme, and President of the Tasmanian Branch of the Australian Institute for International Affairs. His awards included a Fellowship of the AIIA.
In 1995 Peter Boyce was made an Officer in the Order of Australia “for services to education, international relations and the community”. We are very grateful that his services to education included inspiring courses for U3A Hobart.
