Doug Sanderson.     

Memories from Colin Thomas
Doug was a man of great talent who understood the complexities of Chinese coinage. He wrote extensively on the subject and was always willing to pass on knowledge to fellow collectors. At various times, Doug held the positions of President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Branch. In 1990 Doug compiled a history of Windsor State High School representing 125 years of the schools existence, the book remains a valuable source of historic data. For his services to the A.N.S. he was awarded the silver medal and he had also been awarded the Paul Simon Award. One memorable quip from him:-‘ the issue of silver coins is very nice but it is an expensive way of buying silver’.
