UNE's Overseas Student's Association

In Overseas Week, University of New England, 1960 I provided an Australian Archives photo of UNE from 1960. Now here is another.

I quote from the description:

Two agricultural experts from Indonesia are studying at the University of New England, Armidale, Australia, for degrees in Agricultural Economics. They are H H Rosidi, of Djakarta, who worked in the rubber office of the small holders department, and Soepadi Seman, of Malang, who worked in the horticultural office in Djakarat. Both have Colombo Plan scholarships. Mr Rosidi uses a computing machine as part of this study of statistics - photographer, J Fitzpatrick. 1 photographic negative: b&w, acetate Date : 1960

When I was at UNE, the Overseas Students Association was the largest student association on campus. I wonder how many of our overseas students remember this period?
