His institution, as moulded by him, has not as yet been sufficiently recognized to have transformed, right across the world, the hitherto prevailing orthodoxies as to how to provide and deliver tertiary education. Further, and, more immediately, he altered the prevailing notion of 'New England's wealth' from its being based on primary produce for export to a range of 'products' generated by and for the mind, and to be ultimately delivered throughout the nation and beyond by a range of technologies that are still barely understood by many of its beneficiaries.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||New England Lives III, p. 93-120||Publisher:||University of New England in association with the Armidale and District Historical Society||Place of Publication:||Armidale, NSW||ISBN:||9781921597022||Field of Research (FOR):||210303 Australian History (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History)||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://nla.gov.au/anbd.bib-an44074247
