Dates of existence



Sir Roland WIlson Roland Wilson was born in Ulverstone, Tasmania, on April 7, 1904. His father was a builder and contractor. The boy won a scholarship at Devonport High School to take an economics course at the University of Tasmania. He had intended to return to Ulverstone but one of his tutors persuaded him to try for a Rhodes Scholarship. He did so, successfully. The scholarship took him in 1925 to Oxford University. Already a bachelor of commerce from the University of Tasmania, he won at Oxford a prize in colonial history and secured, with distinction, a diploma in economics and political science. He became a doctor of philosophy after writing a thesis on the import of capital.
