A-Z of People
For nearly two decades, the APG initiated projects that brought together a range of individuals from diverse backgrounds. Barbara Steveni, founder and director of the APG, has compiled a list of everyone who contributed to the organisation's activities.
She has provided a brief description of the various positions these people held within the APG between 1966-1985. In some cases, the same title is attributed to several people, because the list spans nearly two decades.
