"The past is never fully gone. It is absorbed into the present and the future. It stays to shape what we are and what we do."
Sir William Deane, Governor-General of Australia, Inaugural Vincent Lingiari Memorial Lecture, August 1996.

The information available via this link comes from a 1995 telephone directory for the Department of Conservation & Natural Resources. It shows only those managing Victoria's forests based in/or directly connected to Head Office in Melbourne, at the Centre for Forest Tree Technology (read Research Branch) based in Kew and field stations, and at Area level. Many more staff in Areas managed forest and fire operations across Victoria but they are not readily identified from the information available.
