John Digby, a former Keeper of the Australian Studbook has passed away aged 84.

Mr Digby was appointed Keeper of the ASB in 1988 and established several new practices to bring it into the "digital age".

He oversaw the Studbook being established as a website in 1997, the first in the world to do so, and the identification system was overhauled to include blood typing and DNA.

He retired in 2004.

A committal service will be held at Macquarie Park Crematorium (Ryde), Magnolia Chapel on Tuesday, 11th July 2017 at 1pm.
