Quote from The Student, Roseworthy College magazine, Vol.27, May 1931:

"It is with great pleasure that we welcome to the staff Mr. G. H. Clarke, B.Sc., who has been appointed Lecturer in Botany and Maths. Mr. Clarke comes to us from the Sydney University, where he was Demonstrator in Botany. He has had wide experience in teaching, having also been Tutor at St Andrew's College and a teacher at North Shore Grammar School. He has already given evidence of his keenness and ability, and has reorganized the Botany syllabus. We hope that his stay will be both long and enjoyable.

We wish to extend to Mr Clarke welcome to this world-famed College. He has come suitably equipped, for everyone realizes what a valuable asset that great big cherrywood pipe is. We all appreciate the delicate way he handles the tiny little sporophylls which so securely enclose “ze leetle seeds”.
