Biography
  • Zihni Jusuf Buzo escaped to Australia from Mussolini-occupied Albania in 1939. After a number of wartime engineering jobs, he moved to Armidale, New South Wales, with his wife and two sons in 1951 as chief construction engineer on the Oakey River Hydro-Electricity Scheme. In 1959 he accepted his first assignment with the World Health Organization and spent most of the next fourteen years on assignment in various parts of the developing world, retiring to Armidale in 1973. In 1991 Buzo was awarded a Medal (OAM) of the Order of Australia for service to the community. Buzo's eldest son was playwright and author Alex Buzo (1944-2006).
