Abstract: Harry Medlin's association with the University of Adelaide lasted over 50 years, with his influence spanning activities as a student, lecturer and multiple committee member to a passionate supporter of the Theatre Guild. He began his studies in 1946 after returning from service as a Captain in the Army during the Second World War, achieving a Bachelor of Science degree in 1949 and completing Honours in 1951. Harry joined the University as a Lecturer in Physics in 1951, quickly rising to Senior Lecturer in 1960 and Associate Professor in 1974. Harry’s service to the University extended far beyond his teaching role and one of his most significant contributions was as Inaugural Chair of the now thriving Alumni Association, which he helped establish. He also served for many years on the Education Committee, was an active member of the Senate Standing Committee from 1965 to 1980 and sat on the University Council from 1967 to 2003. Harry was Deputy Chancellor of the University from 1978 to 1997, and was awarded the degree of Doctor of the University in 1987. In 2001 he received the Centenary Medal for his creative and productive involvement in all aspects of the work, life and culture of universities.
