Link to the main page about the NSW ANZIAM branch.
No evidence was found concerning the activities of the Sydney branch of ANZIAM in the period 1980-1987. Some evidence was found suggesting that the branch did not organise any activities in neither 1988 nor 1989.
Starting in 1988, and running for many years, the ANZIAM Secretary (Dr William Summerfield) wrote an annual column for the Australian Mathematical Society Gazette.
In Ballarat this year the new (1989) Executive resolved that the secretary will write these D.A.M. Notes to inform those members not at the annual conference of its decisions.
Summerfield (1989) is inconclusive as to whether the Sydney branch of ANZIAM organised any activities in 1988, in fact no activities were mentioned for any branch.
The 1990 report of the ANZIAM Secretary (Summerfield, 1990) is inconclusive as to whether the Sydney branch of ANZIAM organised any activities in 1989, in fact no activities were mentioned for any branch.
Martin Bunder let me borrow his collection of issues of the Australian Mathematical Society Gazette: 7 (1980) to 16 (1989).
There is a large amount of missing information about the activities of the NSW ANZIAM branch in the 1980s. It is very unlikely that it will be possible to track this down. It is possible that pertinent information might be formed in the minutes of the ANZIAM AGM. However, it appears that ANZIAM has made no attempt to keep minutes of its AGMs.

This shows the sources that I have used to write part two of this series. (Not necessarily very accurate, as I don't always remember to update things).
A detailed reading of the Gazette might reveal more information about the branch. Due to lack of time I have not examined each issue in detail.
