Abstract

Two decades ago, the space age dawned, and we were awakened to a realm of technological possibilities beyond any we had imagined. Since that time, we have linked continents with communication satellites, sent probes to other planets, and seen men on the moon. And, although we have made achievements that were almost inconceivable 30 years ago, we are still far from realising our potential for a future in space.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to examine how Australian universities commemorated the First World War, with a focus on the University of Melbourne as an institution with a particularly rich history of wartime participation and of diverse forms of memorialisation.

Design/methodology/approach

A case study approach is taken, with an overview of the range of war memorials at the University of Melbourne. These include memorials which acknowledged the wartime role of individuals or groups associated with the University, and took the form of architectural features, and named scholarships or academic positions. Three cross-campus war memorials are examined in depth.

Findings

This paper demonstrates that there was a range of war memorials at Australian universities, indicating the range of views about the First World War, and its legacies, within university communities of students, graduates and staff.

Originality/value

University war commemoration in Australia has not been well documented. This study examines the way in which the particular character of the community at the University of Melbourne was to influence the forms of First World War commemoration.

Abstract

The final report of the Butter Regulations Committee has now been published and it is earnestly to be hoped that Regulations based on the Committee's Recommendations will at once be framed and issued by the Board of Agriculture. It will be remembered that in an Interim Report the Committee recommended the adoption of a limit of 16 per cent. for the proportion of water in butter, and that, acting on this recommendation, the Board of Agriculture drew up and issued the “Sale of Butter Regulations, 1902,” under the powers conferred on the Board by Section 4 of the Food Act of 1899. In the present Report the Committee deal with the other matters referred to them, namely, as to what Regulations, if any, might with advantage be made for determining what deficiency in any of the normal constituents of butter, or what addition of extraneous matter other than water, should raise a presumption until the contrary is proved that the butter is not “genuine.” The Committee are to be congratulated on the result of their labours—labours which have obviously been both arduous and lengthy. The questions which have had to be dealt with are intricate and difficult, and they are, moreover, of a highly technical nature. The Committee have evidently worked with the earnest desire to arrive at conclusions which, when applied, would afford as great a measure of protection—as it is possible to give by means of legislative enactments—to the consumer and to the honest producer. The thorough investigation which has been made could result only in the conclusions at which the Committee have arrived, namely, that, in regard to the administration of the Food Acts, (1) an analytical limit should be imposed which limit should determine what degree of deficiency in those constituents which specially characterise butter should raise a presumption that the butter is not “genuine”; (2) that the use of 10 per cent. of a chemically‐recognisable oil in the manufacture of margarine be made compulsory; (3) that steps should be taken to obtain international co‐operation; and finally, that the System of Control, as explained by various witnesses, commends itself to the Committee.

Abstract

AN INTERESTING CHOICE for re‐issue this autumn in Anthony Blond's Doughty Library of novels by Victorian and Edwardian authors is Leonard Merrick's The Position of Peggy Harper: interesting because Peggy Harper has always been deservedly a favourite of Leonard Merrick's admirers, and these have been many and various; interesting because this novel is highly typical of Merrick's fiction in the realistic vein; and interesting, too, because any revival of enthusiasm for Merrick, a writer who has never quite had his due, should remind us of the great debt that Leonard Merrick owed to another man who, when he died in 1942, had been for a year borough librarian at Stratford on Avon, and whose name might be remembered today in several connexions more often than it is. The librarian was Alfred Wareing and it was he who was responsible for the publication between 1918 and 1921 of a uniform edition of Merrick's works.

Abstract

Purpose

The purpose of this paper is to contribute to knowledge in the field of business by recognizing two historic entrepreneurs who played an important role in the African-American community, and by viewing their contributions through the lens of servant leadership.

Design/methodology/approach

The study is conducted by reviewing and synthesizing a number of writings from sources, such as history journals, newspapers and other resources.

Findings

The main finding is that two former slaves (Merrick and Herndon) practiced servant leadership in the early twentieth century as a way to create jobs and transform communities.

Originality/value

The contributions made by African-Americans have not been adequately covered in the literature. This paper begins to fill a noticeable void by highlighting the contributions of two former slaves who managed to become successful servant leaders within their communities.
