Allan FLEMING - Librarian promoted to National Post

Still keeping with my Trove Tuesday theme of recording newspaper articles, either written by or about, my Mum's cousin, Allan Percy FLEMING.

John Brudenall shows how Allan Fleming's vision, leadership and enthusiasm contributed to making two libraries the great institutions they are today.
Allan Fleming's library career began in 1968. The long drawn-out
separation of the National Library from the Parliamentary Library (or vice versa) was finally coming to an end as the new National Library building was almost ready for occupation.............
 (source National Library of Australia .pdf document - Brudenall, John (Sep 2001). "A man for his time: Allan Percy Fleming, CBE OBE". National Library of Australia News. XI (12): 10–13.)

This article notifies of Allan Fleming's appointment to National Librarian in 1970.
