Abstract: Cliff Hooper began his association with Roseworthy Agricultural College as a student, graduating with a First Class Diploma in 1928. Two years later he began working at the College, first as a Wool Classer and then as a Herd Tester before joining the Army in 1940. He returned to the College in 1950, taking on the role of Sheep and Beef Husbandry Lecturer. While at Roseworthy some of his extra work for the students included that of Sportsmaster for most of his 23 years on the staff. In addition to his professional role Cliff developed the College football team, organised interstate trips and inspired the students to give their best for their College. He also showed sheep and bulls at the Royal Adelaide Show, and in 1981 received the Roseworthy Old Collegians Association (ROCA) Award of Merit Medal for his contribution to the College both as an employee and as an active member of the Association.
