Abstract

During his long scholarly career, Frederick David McCarthy published more than 300 articles, monographs and books. Most people know McCarthy as a scholar of Aboriginal studies, but few know the man who began his career as a 14 year old boy as a library assistant, and later became one of the most influential scholars in the study of Aboriginal prehistory and anthropology.
