Samuel Wadham arrived from England in 1926 As Professor of Agriculture at the University of Melbourne. A man who was prepared to ignore heat, dust and flies to talk to farmers in remote districts, Wadham defied the then accepted image of a university educator. He was unpretentious in dress and manners, and antisocially in all surroundings. Ross Humphreys skilfully documents the broad panorama of Sir Samuel Wadham's concerns and interests and, through access to the Wadham family papers, also reveals the complexities of his character and his family life. -- front fold over blurb Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
