Arnold Hely and Australian Adult Education
Morris, Roger
Australian Journal of Adult Learning, v51 spec iss p192-204 Dec 2011
Arnold Hely (1907-1967) was a most significant figure in the history of adult education in New Zealand, in Australia and internationally. Arnold Hely, a New Zealander, Director of Tutorial Classes (later Adult Education) at the University of Adelaide from 1957 to 1965, was the prime mover in the establishment in 1964 of the Asian South Pacific Bureau of Adult Education (ASPBAE) and was, until his most untimely death in 1967, its General Secretary. He previously had played, as an impartial newcomer/outsider, a leading role in the formation in 1960 of ALA (then called AAAE). In this paper I will focus on Hely's efforts to bring Australian adult education into the mainstream of world adult education. In telling Hely's story I will explore the context of Australian adult education in the 1950s and 1960s.
