The Councillors, staff, volunteers and members of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria note with great sadness the death of our friend, Gordon Moffatt, on the 27th July 2023.

Gordon had been an active member of the RHSV since 1983 and, for three years 1983-85, served on Council. He was also a most generous supporter of the Society ensuring that Victorian history was valued and preserved.

We send our condolences to Gordon’s family on their loss.

Earlier this year, Gordon was presented, at home, with a Distinguished Service Award by our President, Richard Broome. You can read Richard’s citation for Gordon’s DSA here

In 2019 we named our meeting room The Gordon Moffatt Room to honour Gordon’s ongoing generosity to the Society.
