Dr David Bottomley has become Australia’s oldest PhD graduate at the age of 94. Bottomley graduated from Curtin University with a Doctor of Philosophy in the week ending 8 February. He taught science for many years, as well as working in marketing research. Bottomley’s PhD looked at five principals who used science-based curriculum in the early 19th century, and he believes that the ideas that they used are valid today. Bottomley was the co-founder of Australian Sales Research Bureau, which was acquired by Roy Morgan in the 1970s.
