It was with great sadness that the members of the Historical Society of the Northern Territory heard of the sudden death of Charles Darwin University Emeritus Professor Alan Powell.
Alan was a long term member of the Society, for many years editor of the Society’s Journal and a keen supporter of the annual exploratory camping trips. His expertise as a senior and respected historian was of great benefit to the Society and its members and will be greatly missed.
In 2017 the Society recognised Professor Powell’s status and contribution to history, particularly in the Northern Territory, by publishing the proceedings of a symposium held in his honour and contributed to by local and national historians – Beyond the Far Country – edited by Dr Samantha Wells. The title is a word play on the title of Professor Powell’s important history of the Northern Territory, The Far Country, published in 1982.
Vale Alan Powell, you will not be forgotten.
