Instruments, Materials and Equipment) – another ADA function which
has a new name in our present structure. Rob’s name became well-
known nationally to our profession after the early publications, and
he undertook numerous lecture tours for regional and branch groups
in order to clarify (and teach) the pharmacological wisdoms his handy
little book contained. For the United Nations, he also undertook some
lecture appearances in the Pacific Islands, as far afield as Samoa.
One of his interests that was never publicised was his lab work
with the early antibiotics. He was concerned that there was little
data available on the potency and reliability of the newer products
as they arrived on the scene. He undertook some analyses which
attempted to determine what levels of dosage were needed to
achieve clinical effectiveness. Notable in this work was his initial
research on amoxicillin. He was one of the first researchers to
determine the actual level required in the bloodstream to effect the
desired bacteriostasis (26 micrograms per milligram).
At about this time, Robin also became a member of the Australian
Dental Journal’s editorial group, aiding and advising the then-Editor,
Robert Harris. He was also an official adviser to NHMRC on dental
matters, with particular special responsibility to their publications
It would also be fruitful if I was able to document his many
contributions to the Association’s interests and responsibilities in
the field of representation at international meetings. Robin was
frequently a nominated delegate to FDI World Dental Congresses
and to Asia Pacific events. As a representative of Australia, he was
well-thought-of and popular. Also, in the same field, he was highly
respected by the exhibitors and other personnel who represented
the major dental manufacturing enterprises.

It would be difficult to list, with any assurance of accuracy, all the
fields that engaged the interests of Robin and his charming and
cheerful wife, Judy. However, a note of such as this would not be
complete without mentioning their commitment to, and enjoyment
of, classical music, particularly orchestral performances.
Farewell Rob – I have lost a good friend as have many others in our
profession. Our sympathies are with his two girls, Helen and Ruth.
Sadly, Judy predeceased him in 2014.
