I found this in the Letters to the Editor in The OBU Bulletin [November 1998]:
How on earth did Nye Perram (86) become a QUIET ACHIEVER!!! NYE!!! I can’t believe it. Is this some new definition of quiet that I didn’t know about??? Tsk!
Evan Ruth (86)
I remember the Class of 1986 vividly: they were a great bunch, and my first HSC year at The Mine. Many a story I could tell…
I have seen both gentlemen in much more recent times: this century, anyway. Evan has been doing good things with UNHCR: in 2003 he was head of the UNHCR’s refugee eligibility unit in Kuala Lumpur. Nye, I hear on this morning’s news, is one of the Unions NSW legal team in the States’ High Court challenge to John Howard’s IR Laws. This case has major constitutional implications.
