SIR RONALD WILSON GL'57, a former High Court Judge in Australia, died in July at the age of 82.
A fighter pilot in Britain’s Royal Air Force during World War II, Mr. Wilson is perhaps best known for the work he did on human rights as president of Australia’s Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission. In that capacity he led an investigation into the forced removal of Aboriginal children from their families. His subsequent report, issued in 1998, called for a period of national reconciliation and an apology from the government.
Mr. Wilson served on the High Court from 1979 to 1989. Previously, he was Queen’s Counsel for Western Australia, the youngest person to hold that position, then Solicitor-General for that region. He was also president of the Assembly of the Uniting Church in Australia from 1988 to 1991. Mr. Wilson is survived by his wife Lady Leila Wilson and five children.
