Caroline Clark: PhD graduate, Centre for Health Equity

Caroline’s thesis analysed the interplay of doctors, temperance interests, business entrepreneurs, religious and charity organisations, alcohol sellers and the state in the handling of chronic drunkenness in Victoria from 1870 to 1930. This was done through a study of the history of four institutions, all of which varied in their treatment approaches, concepts of the condition being treated, client groups and funding models.
