Description

After a long career in finance and management, Keith Pescod enrolled as an undergraduate at La Trobe University, where he completed an honours degree in History and Religious Studies and received a Doctorate of Philosophy.

In an earlier book, Good Food, Bright Fires & Civility, he related how the British Colonial Office of the nineteenth century assembled, protected and accommodated over 330,000 government-assisted emigrants in depots of its own creation, before shepherding them on to chartered ships bound for the Australian colonies.

 

Dr Pescod is an Honorary Associate in the School of Historical and European Studies of La Trobe University.
