Michael Powell tribute
Michael was a once-in-a -lifetime teacher for students at the University of Tasmania. He was also a prolific researcher, writing on a diverse range of topics from Sri Lankan history, through Australian politics to Aboriginal history, his major work being a life of the indigenous leader, Musquito. The University recognized his accomplishments with its highest award, the University Medal, just before his death.
Mike was a larger than life character. It was my privilege to be his friend and colleague. This website is an enduring tribute to him.
