Royal Society of Tasmania Northern Branch’s November Lecture: Professor Henry Reynolds
- Professor Henry Reynolds
Andrew Inglis Clark was the one of the few republicans among the generation of colonial politicians who became the fathers of federation. His views are more interesting because they emerged from a long tradition of Tasmanian patriotism based on a powerful commitment to place, which was already apparent in the 1820’s and reinforced in succeeding generations.
Henry Reynolds grew up and was educated in Tasmania at Hobart High and UTAS with a B.A hons and an M.A. With his wife Margaret he spent several years teaching in London, returning to Australia in 1965 to take up a lectureship in the new Townsville University College. He spent most of his career in North Queensland. Best known for his many books, articles and documentaries about the relations between Aborigines and settlers.
