Dame Jean Macnamara's 121st Birthday

Today’s Doodle, illustrated by Sydney-based guest artist Thomas Campi, celebrates Australian doctor and medical scientist Dame Jean Macnamara on her 121st birthday. Dr. Macnamara applied her tireless work ethic to better understand and treat various forms of paralysis including polio, and her work contributed to the development of a successful polio vaccine in 1955.

Stuart Greaves spent his savings on his first open-wheel racing car as a teenager over 40 years ago, which he destroyed shortly thereafter when youthful enthusiasm exceeded ability. Subsequently he turned his attention to athletics and by age thirty was selected to represent Australia as a marathon runner internationally.

The World of Amateur Radio

Colin will present and demonstrate how it is possible to communicate locally and around the world.
