Dr Edward Swarbreck Hall - Colonial medical scientist & moral activist
From his arrival in Van Diemen's Land in 1833, Dr Edward Swarbreck Hall clashed with his fellow medical practitioners, administrators, politicians and clergy. As a doctor he stood up for convicts, agitated for protection of the general public from infectious diseases and defended Catholics and Catholicism from sectarian attacks.

A pioneering epidemiologist of international repute, a perceptive shipboard diarist and a devoted father and husband, this biography reveals the many faceted life of a colonial doctor on a mission to improve the life of sick and the powerless.
