Frank Rees, former Principal of Whitley College, has just published a biography of Mervyn Himbury, the founding principal of Whitley.
Frank researched Himbury’s life in Wales and his education and career as Professor of Church History in Cardiff, then his move to Australia and the extraordinary work of creating a new college. Drawing upon the college records, Himbury’s own recollections and the wider context of university and Baptist life in Australia, this is both a personal story and a significant record of the issues and opportunities that shaped Himbury’s career, his vision and leadership, and his influence upon several generations of students.
You can purchase this wonderful book from Whitley College for a special introductory price of $30 (RRP is $35). Please fill out the Mervyn Himbury Book – Order Form and send it to Karen at reception firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your copy. Alternatively you can call reception on 9340 8100.
Congratulations Frank on this outstanding achievement.
