Abstract

Griffith Taylor: Global Geographer Foundation Professor of Geography at the University of Sydney, Griffith Taylor (1880-1963) was a remarkable man – a driven intellectual and a superb self-publicist. Taylor’s career in Australia the USA and Canada encompassed Antarctic exploration, ethnography and nation planning. His frank assessments of Australia’s arid country and concern for the environmental limits of settlement, derided in his own lifetime, have earned him renewed respect. This exhibition curated by historian Carolyn Strange explores the extraordinary world of a talented draftsman, teacher and provocative explorer of places and ideas.
