Vale Doug Ralph

It is with sadness that we learn of the passing of Doug Ralph, presenter of the History Show here at MAIN fm.  Doug was renowned as a local historian and environmentalist with a particular interest in the history of the Central Victorian goldfields region.  Born and bred in the Castlemaine district, Doug was the 5th generation of his family to live here.

Doug had a lifelong interest in the natural environment and has been involved in campaigns to get better protection for the forests in central Victoria.

The Friends of the Box-Ironbark Forests have said this about Doug:

Doug was tireless in his efforts to get better management for our natural heritage, but he was also insatiable in his curiosity about cultural history. Although he was sceptical about the value of gold mining, and relentlessly critical of its destructive effect on the environment, he had enormous sympathy for the miners and huge interest in the detail of their lives.

One of Doug’s most striking qualities was his inclusiveness. He kept his eye on the important issues, and was impatient of efforts to divide this community into ‘old’ and ‘new’ residents. What counted for him getting things right, not where someone came from. http://www.fobif.org.au/
