H.V. Evatt: Character and Work
This thesis was submitted in 1990 fulfilling the requirements for the degree of Doctor of Philosophy [to the] Department of History, School of Humanities La Trobe University Bundoora.
This doctoral thesis is a biography of the former state and federal labor politician and high court judge, Dr H.V. Evatt. It is a study of the character of this figure which has been developed from drawing on early (and later) private life, education and adult pursuits. An understanding of character has informed the motivation and directions of career to clarify, for instance, the nature of legal and political outlooks and the roles of personal issues such as the desire for acclaim and power.
