The section on Oz has Neville and Walsh meeting in "late 1963 or early 1964". That is indeed about the time that people from the University of Technology (former name of UNSW) started to associate with the Sydney Push. But the resultant publication is said to have "hit the streets on April Fool's Day, 1963". Obviously a contradiction. The (incomplete) data at the National; Library of Australia suggests a later timeframe. However, I have a personal recollection of helping to relay an Oz story (about Sir Frank Packer's Teleword competition) to Richard in early 1963. I may still have some early copies, so will try to hunt 'em down. Also, in her book Sex and Anarchy: The life and death of the Sydney Push, Ann Coombs wrote (at p 247) that Sydney's Oz started in 1963. I suggest that we revise the meeting date to "late 1962 or early 1963"-- after allowing time for other comments. Cheers Bjenks (talk) 09:31, 19 April 2009 (UTC)

Sounds good to me - it predates my birth by a few years....Casliber (talk · contribs) 02:15, 20 April 2009 (UTC)
