Continuing Influence


Establishment of a university for Tasmanians

Andrew Inglis Clark supported the establishment of the University in Tasmania in 1889.  He played a critical role in parliament in fending off a cost-cutting measure that would have stifled it at birth. 

From 1901 to 1903 he served as Vice-Chancellor of the University of Tasmania. His tenure was short, for he resigned in 1903 and died four years later.
