Biographies

The University of Melbourne was the second university to be established in Australia, the first for the state of Victoria. The legislation for its establishment was passed by parliament in early 1853, the foundation stone laid in July 1854 and classes commenced in April 1855. Initially the University boasted only four faculties and sixteen students. By the end of the 20th century there was a total of around 34,000 students and 13 faculties.

The Act of the Victorian Parliament which established the University Melbourne, received Royal assent on 22 January 1853. The University thus established was state-funded, urban, secular, non-residential and open only to men. It was to offer the degrees of Bachelor and Master of Arts, Bachelor and Doctor of Medicine, Laws and Music, but not Theology. The BA would be taken by all students who entered the University as a general, liberal or cultural education. In April 1853 Governor Hotham selected a University Council of 20 members, consisting of government officials, clergymen and professional men of the city, about one third of whom were graduates of British Universities. To these people was entrusted the governance of the University under the leadership of a Chancellor, who was until 1934 also the Chief Executive Officer of the University. The first Chancellor of the University, Sir Redmond Barry, a graduate of Trinity College Dublin (BA 1837; admitted to the Irish Bar 1838) made a significant contribution to the cultural development of Victoria, most notably through his role in the University and as President of the Trustees of the Melbourne Public Library and National Gallery. Hugh Childers held the (then non-executive) position of Vice-Chancellor in the newly created University until his return to England in March 1857. The first salaried, full-time chief executive officer, or vice-chancellor was not provided for in legislation until 1933. The first such vice-chancellor was Raymond E. Priestley, who arrived from the United Kingdom in February 1935. The Registrar was another significant officer appointed immediately. As the chief administrative officer of the University and secretary to the Council, the Registrar and the various departments created under his control as the University grew attended to all matters related to the governance, finance, buildings and grounds, staff and students and adherence to statutory regulations. In the early years, the Registrar was also the Librarian. The University of Melbourne differed in significant ways from all the models available in the United Kingdom and Ireland, most notably in its strictly secular constitution (professors were not to be ordained clergymen) and its decision to appoint professors who would both teach and examine non-residential students in their particular academic expertise. They would communicate their knowledge to students in a public and open way, not cloistered in a small college tutorial as in the Oxford/Cambridge model, nor would they merely examine those who had been tutored elsewhere as in the London model. The first four professors were, therefore, selected at least partly on their perceived ability to impart knowledge to students and to a raw colony with only a handful of university-educated men among its citizenry, but a profound desire to change that situation quickly. A committee of eminent Englishmen chaired by Astronomer Royal G. B. Airy was invited to advise on the selection of the foundation professors, who would receive 1,000 pounds and a free house for life (a handsome inducement), and recommended from among the 90 candidates who presented themselves: Frederick McCoy. Professor of Natural History 1854-1899; Martin Howy Irving, MA Oxford, Professor of Classics, 1856-1871, member of Council 1875-1900, Vice-Chancellor 1887-1889; William Parkinson Wilson, MA Fellow of St John?s College Oxford, Professor of Pure and Applied Mathematics, 1854-1874; William Edward Hearn, MA Trinity College, Dublin, Professor of Greek, Queen?s College, Galway, Professor of Modern Historyand Literature, Political Economy and Logic, 1854-1873, Dean of Law 1873-1888 and Chancellor 1886-87. Although the University of Melbourne was not established on the collegiate model of Oxford and Cambridge, there was a clear expectation that colleges would be built within the grounds to provide supervised residence and some additional tuition. In 1861, the four major Christian denominations were granted a little over 10 acres each upon which to build colleges. The sixteen acres left in the centre of this area was set aside as a recreation ground. The progressive spirit in which local educators agitated for the introduction of science and engineering at the University also extended to the admission of women, firstly to sit for the matriculation exams from 1871, and then to be admitted to study at the University on equal terms with men students from March 1880. There was remarkably little opposition except to the idea of women studying Medicine, or to their participation in the governance of the University. In the following year Julia Margaret (Bella) Guerin, Lydia Harris, Mary Gaunt and Henrietta Hearn joined 342 students enrolled in Arts, Law, Medicine and Engineering. Almost half of these were studying Medicine. Guerin duly graduated as the 255th recipient of the BA in December 1883. She received an MA in 1885. The University of Melbourne celebrated its 150th Anniversary in 2003.
