June Hall

June was originally appointed as accountant and office manager in October 1970 when Professor Willis was Warden. The position of Assistant Warden fell vacant and June as then appointed to this position. As June relates it, “she liked the place and the kids and wanted to participate”. Professor Willis retired as Warden in 1972 and Professor Jack Ratcliffe became the Warden. June must have liked Jack too, since she remained as Assistant Warden until 4 July 1984. During her fourteen years full-time and a year part-time in the House, June filled the role of confidant and surrogate mother to a large body of residents. She has many happy memories and a fund of stories of events in the developing lives of the students. Each year June was honoured by the Residents’ Society with an award of ‘Matchmaker Extraordinaire’. She has contributed significantly to the word of mouth reputation of the House.
