Allan Martin (1926-2002) was an intellectual, institutional, and social pioneer whose career as a historian spanned the second half of the 20th Century. When most Australians went to England for their postgraduate work, he chose ANU, where he was the first doctoral student in History in the Research School of Social Sciences. He accepted the Foundation chair in History at LaTrobe University in 1966 and returned to RSSS as a senior fellow in 1973.

The Allan Martin Lecturer will be a distinguished scholar whose work is relevant to Allan's intellectual, institutional and social interests to the History Program to give a public lecture, present a seminar and conduct a workshop for PhD students.
