AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Brennan pays tribute to the achievements of the Reverend Charles Badham. While Professor of Classics at Sydney University, Badham established language courses in Greek, Latin, German and French which people could study by correspondence and which he ran free of charge. Brennan was his first pupil in Latin under this scheme. Professor Badham did much to widen access to tertiary education, including introducing evening courses and facilitating the admission of women to Sydney University.
