Subject: RE: 2023 Obit: Bob Bolton
Our favorite memory of Bob Bolton was meeting him on my first visit to Sydney. He was there at the home of my former graduate advisor who had been teaching at the University of Sydney for years and was resident in Glebe and we were planning to use their house as our base for exploring Australia. So there was Bob seated on the couch waiting for us to arrive, and happy to chat with everyone and then drag us off to the nearest pub for further arcane discussion.
He was a fine source of traditional Australian songs, an excellent photographer, and a good friend. I'm glad we had a chance to thank him for making so many friendly connections; I still remember that wonderful Sicilian dinner in his home neighborhood.
