1825-2018 looks at higher education before the advent of formal colleges and classes, and how it evolved into the multi-billion dollar university sector of today. The book also considers the problems
and issues confronting tertiary education and its likely future in Brisbane.

Fourteen Brisbanites contributed to this book. Some are academics, some are amateur historians – but all have a scholarly passion for, and depth of knowledge in, their field. They were asked to write, not simply about the institutions, but about the ordinary people and how they learnt rather than how or where something was taught. We asked the authors to try to write themselves into the story and to use humour, including cartoons.

This book looks at:

• How early Brisbane doctors learned from indigenous medicine
• How early pharmacists and nurses could be very dangerous people
• How early Brisbane lawyers did not need to go to university
• How Brisbane people learned about society and culture
• How Brisbane artists and musicians developed before there was formal training
• How each Brisbane university set out to be radically different – and ended up being much the same
• How Brisbane women changed and were changed by tertiary studies
• How student radicalism in Brisbane far preceded the 1960s

This enjoyable and lavishly illustrated book explores some intriguing and largely forgotten aspects of our beautiful city of Brisbane.
