PRIM E M INISTER

FOR MEDIA 13 DECEMBER 1991

Hazel and I are deeply saddened at the death of Stuart Challender. His extraordinary musical talent together with his courage in dealing with the tragedy of AIDS are cause for the greatest respect.

Stuart's enormous contribution to music and his personal attributes provided much to Australia's cultural standing. His dignity and his honesty with colleagues, friends and the broader community was widely admired.

To both of us he was a friend whose inspirational performances provided many hours of pleasure.

He made a valued contribution towards more tolerant attitudes and a better understanding of AIDS sufferers and their loved ones. He will be greatly missed.
