Abstract

Despite the reputation of Melbourne, Australia, as a socially advanced city in the early twentieth century, professional social work training did not commence at what was then the city's only university, until 1941. This article describes the strategies by a coalition of wealthy philanthropists, welfare organizations, medical practitioners, social workers, and The University of Melbourne itself to establish such professional training. It does so with exploration of the hitherto unrecognized influence of New York Social Work and the unique intellectual leadership of the director of training of the founding Social Work course in Melbourne, Miss Jocelyn S. Hylsop.
