I know that my father's close friend Don Lamm (D.W. Lamm) conducted a waterbird survey at the northern end of Lake George over a number of years through the early 1960s. From memory he resumed this survey which he had conducted during a previous posting to Canberra (in the 1950s I believe).
Don was Charge D'Affaires at the American Embassy in Canberra during the early 1960s.
He had been posted here in the 1950s I believe.
He was around Canberra probably before COG was formed - I am not totally sure when he left Australia.
From memory he published papers in the Emu. Some were jointly published with my father (S.J. WIlson) but they would have been papers on small passerines.
RE Lake George, I found one reference with a quick Google Search.
Mark Clayton and other senior members of COG might also be able to flesh out this report, as Mark would almost certainly remember Don.
Don Lamm travelled widely in his diplomatic career, in Africa and South America, and then retired to Arizona, so Google Searches with DW Lamm and birds will probably all relate to him. I know he collected many specimens for the Smithsonian Museum, mostly South American birds.
I hope that is of interest to your correspondent.
