Summary

Dr Walter Richardson is known to readers - if at all - as the father of novelist Henry Handel Richardson and as the model for her character Richard Mahony. Richardson is a significant figure in his own right. Not only a dedicated doctor and obstetrician in Ballarat, he was a scholar, a thinker and an eloquent contributor in the debate between science and religion in Melbourne and elsewhere in the 1870s.
