Dorothy Thomson Dixon BS ’66

  • 06/28/2018

    Dorothy Thomson Dixon BS ’66 and her husband, Gale, moved to Melbourne, Australia, in 1972 as he embarked on a three-year contract teaching cultural geography at Monash University. Today, the couple is still there! Over the years, Dixon worked as a special education teacher. She reports that one of their daughters lives in Newcastle, Australia, and the other works and studies at Portland State University. Now retired, Dorothy and Gale have an off-road camper with four-wheel drive, which they take on vacations to sight birds and visit remote places in the Australian Outback. They also maintain Gale’s parents home in Tigard and love the summers in Oregon. “Visitors always welcome!”
