This interview, with Peter Scardoni, is part of the Emeritus Faculty's Oral History Program, involving retired staff members of ANU who were part of the university in the early decades of its life. The Oral History Program was initiated and developed by ANU Emeritus Faculty as a contribution to university and community understanding of the beginnings and development of ANU over the past six decades. Emeritus Faculty has a special interest in this era, since the Faculty's membership includes many of the people who helped shape ANU in its early days, to make it the pre-eminent university it is today. Peter Alexander Scardoni was born in Berry, NSW in 1944. Peter's father, then a school teacher in the NSW state education system, moved to Canberra in the 1950s to teach in the newly emergent state school system there. Peter was one of the first students of St Edmund's College in Canberra, and graduated from there in 1962. He found employment with ANU in the Accounts Section as a school leaver in 1963, and worked the rest of his professional life in financial and management positions until retirement from the university in 1999. Since retirement Peter has remained active in the tertiary education sector, providing financial expertise on the national secretariats of the Association for Tertiary Education Management (ATEM) and the Tertiary Education Facilities Management Association (TEFMA). He also provides management and financial help on a volunteer basis to a number of charitable organizations, including Pegasus (Riding for the Disabled, ACT) and the National Brain Injury Foundation. Peter is the Treasurer on the ANU Emeritus Faculty, a position he has held since its establishment in 1999. Peter lives in Flynn ACT, with his partner Bari Hall, and includes amongst his activities fishing, gardening, exploring the outback, cooking, wine, and music. He has two daughters and a son, plus five ? grandchildren.
