Peter Hunter's Kodak Australasia business card, issued about 1990. The card identifies Peter as the Photo Information Consultant for Professional Imaging at Coburg.

Peter Hunter had a 34 year career with Kodak Australasia Pty Ltd. He was an English migrant, who originally worked for Kodak UK, and subsequently sought a job with Kodak in Australia. He worked in Public Relations, where his responsibilities included writing technical leaflets and running the Kodak lecture service. Peter also had the task of producing the staff newsletter Kodakery, and headed a team called the Photo Information Services Group which provided advice and support to photographers. Peter was active in the Kodak Camera Club and helped set up a museum at Kodak. He was awarded the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) in 1990 for his services to photography, including, in particular, his work teaching photography to a group of disabled people in Yooralla. Peter retired in 1995.

This document was donated as part of the Kodak Oral History Project. It complements the Kodak Heritage Collection of products, promotional materials, photographs and working life artefacts collected from Kodak Australasia in 2005, when the Melbourne manufacturing plant at Coburg closed down.
