Earle Page Dr Earle Page

Earle Page College is named in honour of Dr Earle Christmas Grafton Page, who was appointed the first Chancellor of the University of New England in 1954 and was Chairman of the Advisory Council of the New England University College from 1938 to 1954.

Dr Earle Page was a brilliant student, entering the University of Sydney at the age of 15 and graduating from Medicine with 1st Class Honours. Later Knighted Sir Earle Page, he was one of Australia's foremost political leaders of the twentieth century, being a member of the Federal Parliament from 1919 to 1961. He was at different times Prime Minister, Deputy Prime Minister, Treasurer and Leader of the Australian Country Party.

In 2013, Earle Page College celebrated 50 years of providing a home for UNE students, a milestone of which we are extremely proud.

It was Earle Page who wrote "Each Prove Himself".
