[Extract]Perhaps the most striking aspect of Abe Greenbaum's contribution to tax teaching in Australia is its intensity. Abe was universally recognised by his colleagues as the most deserving person to receive the inaugural Australasian Tax Teachers' Association Medal when it was awarded to him in September 2000. His many books and articles, his presentations at numerous conferences, and his outstanding contributions to ATTA, initially as Treasurer and later as President, made him the obvious candidate for the award. Remarkably, all of this work for which he was recognised was accomplished in just over a decade, from mid-1989, when Abe began teaching tax law at Deakin University's Geelong campus, to mid-2000, when Abe was teaching in the ATAX program at the University of New South Wales.
