Cameron is descended from both the Archer and Cameron families of Ginninderra - his name says it all! Cameron visited in the course of collecting material for the family history he is researching for publication, which will relate the story of the Cameron family (the 'Glebe' Camerons - not to be confused with the 'Waterholes' or Majura Camerons) from the Scottish highlands to the Limestone Plains.

An agricultural educator by background, Cameron was Director of Tocal Agricultural College for twenty years or so. He is currently Chair of the Belgenny Farm Trust, Primary Industries Education Foundation Australia, and President of the Paterson Historical Society.

He has encouraged the idea of an exhibition on the history of agriculture in the Ginninderra district - something that we have under consideration.
