Barry Williams, Pioneering Australian Skeptic, Dies at Seventy-Nine

Barry Williams and James Randi

Barry Williams, founder of the Australian Skeptics, has died. Tim Mendham, editor of The Skeptic, shared his thoughts:

It is with great sadness that we report the news of the passing of Barry Williams, who died on January 20, 2018, at the age of seventy-nine, following a series of heart operations. Barry was intrinsic to the history and development of the skeptical movement in Australia, and for many years he was the face of skepticism in this country. As fellow skeptic Peter Bowditch has said, “We should all remember that we are here because he was there.”
