ANZOS is delighted to congratulate our member and 2021 W.H. (Beattie) Steel Award winner, Professor Emeritus Peter Hannaford, on being named as a Companion in the Order of Australia (AC) in the most recent round of awards announced on 26 January 2023.
Peter was cited "for eminent service to science, particularly to experimental physics, as an academic and researcher, to professional institutions, and as a role model for young scientists".
The AC is the highest rank of civilian award in the Order of Australia system and only six were awarded in this round, so this is truly outstanding mark of achievement.
Here is Peter receiving the Society's highest honour, the W. H. (Beattie) Steel medal in early 2022 from former ANZOS Councillor and Treasurer Prof. Arnan Mitchell.
