History and Achievement: A Portrait of the Honours Students of Professor George Arnold Wood
This book takes the form of a collective biography that examines the background, education, careers and achievements of the 238 students who graduated with honours in history under George Arnold Wood, the foundation Challis Professor of History at Sydney University. His students formed part of a professional and intellectual elite, the leaders of which profoundly influenced twentieth century Australian life and in some cases made a major impact overseas. They rose to the top of their professions, became public figures and expanded the frontiers of Australian history and literature. Their activities illuminate neglected aspects of Australian society and they add further to our understanding of George Arnold Wood and the university in which he taught for thirty-seven years.
