This paper examines the effects of World War II on Australia’s first rural teacher’s college in 1945. The paper locates the college in wider national and international contexts. It looks at the effect of World War II on teacher supply and demand in countries affected by war. The war was a genuine reason for the basic conditions of the college in 1945. However, it was not only this that was to blame. Teacher education was conducted frugally in Australia at the time. The conditions at the college had not improved since its original foundation in 1926.
