Abstract

George Lee taught in schools in Aboriginal communities and on pastoral stations in the Northern Territory (NT) of Australia for much of his career. He is one of the unsung heroes of education in the NT. He preferred the smaller schools; though when I was appointed as a postprimary teacher to Maningrida, a remote indigenous community, in the 1960s, George was on the staff of this eight-teacher school, having been recently transferred from a pastoral station.
