Ian Booth tragically died on Tuesday 19 April 2011, while out running on one of his favourite tracks on Mt Ainslie. An ambulance came but the team was unable to help. Ian was just 63.
Ian worked in the Department of the House of Representatives in the 1970s and then moved on to the Parliamentary Library. His House career was in the Committee Office and many alumni who worked in the office at that time will remember Ian for his fabled smile, laugh and good cheer and his thorough and dedicated contribution to House committees' work.
