Henry Parker initially studied to become a priest, but was never ordained. Instead he became a leader in the development of educational psychology and a major player in the Tasmanian education system. He was on the staff of the Philip Smith Training College in Hobart from 1922-1942 and was responsible for establishing the Tasmanian Education Department's first psychological clinic. He also established specialist classes, including those for the gifted and Welfare Schools for slow learners. Parker was also first chairman of the Australian branch of the British Psychological Society; an original member of the Australian Council for Educational Research; and President of the Tasmanian Free Library Movement at the time of his death.
