The Royal Society of NSW and the Sydney Mechanics School of Arts (SMSA) are proud to present a new collaborative lecture series, Great Australians You’ve Never Heard Of, that will look at the lives of Australians who have not received the recognition they deserve.

Our second Great Australian is a Victorian scientist, who once injected himself with the myxoma virus, in order to prove that myxomatosis did not affect humans! Join Peter Baume to learn the identity of this Great Australian, and hear about his fascinating and accomplished life.

Bookings essential, everyone welcome.

Please arrive at 6:00pm for drinks and refreshments, for a 6:30pm start.
