Vale Peter Newton

Readers of this blog will be saddened to hear of the passing of Peter Newton last week after a short struggle with illness. Peter was a poet, linguist, writer and editor, Associate Sydney Jazz Club and Jazz Archivist. Peter worked closely with PARADISEC to identify, sort and catalogue the extensive linguistic collection of Arthur Capell, including language recordings from all over the world, but especially from the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu and Fiji. He will be fondly remembered by all at PARADISEC.
