Biographical entry Pryor, David E.



David Pryor joined the Wallaby Club in 1993. He was Secretary 1997-2000 and Editor of Card 1996-2000. He trained as a chemist and was a Research Associat, and later an Occupational Hygienist, with ICI Ltd.



For many years, David Pryor has assiduously and inconspicuously looked after the Stick for our Dinner Functions. This has meant picking it up at a city bank and then returning it for safe keeping next day until the next event. Each year, he also took care of the engraving of the new President's name on the gold band. The Club owes David, along with Alma, a sincere debt of gratitude for long and valuable service. Thank you both!
