Albert Tucker (1914-1999)
The death of Albert Tucker occurred in October 1999, while this number of The La Trobe Journal was still in production. Our cover and the selection from his Family and Friends, an exhibition of his photographs, had been planned to draw attention to Tucker items in the Pictures Collection of the State Library. With the passing from our midst of this remarkable artist an event still fresh in our minds, this number of the journal will, we hope, be seen as doing honour to his memory.
