In Memoriam – Roger Peddie

It is with sadness that I let members know that Roger Peddie has died.  Roger was an early powerful and influential advocate for a national languages policy in Aotearoa/New Zealand, as well as a long-term staff member of the School of Education at the University of Auckland. Moreover, Roger was a respected and significant advocate for NZALT, serving our association for several years as a research officer.  He will be greatly missed, but his work and publications will serve as a legacy into the future to what he achieved on behalf of NZALT and beyond in the languages arena.
