Biographical history

Council appointed Professor Denis Winston, Professor of Town and Country Planning in the University of Sydney, and Mr Grenfell Rudduck, of the Department of National Development, Canberra, as Site Consultants in September 1954. Preliminary plans of the Site Consultants were accepted by the University during 1955. In May 1960 Professor Winston was appointed as site consultant to meet the needs of association of the Canberra University College and the University. In October 1968 Mr Roy Simpson was selected as Site Planner. After Council's approval in December 1971 of a review of the site plan, the Property and Plans Division of the ANU decided to collect and describe the basic plans as a record printed as The History of the Site Plan 1912-1971. The updating of the site plan in 1971 resulted from joint efforts of the site planner and the Property and Plans Division.
