Abstract/Summary Reginald Heber Roe was born on 3 August 1850 at Blandford, Dorset, England. An outstanding student and instructor, he was appointed headmaster of Brisbane Grammar School in 1876. Throughout his career he gave many public lectures and contributed articles to journals and newspapers on numerous topics. Of particular note was his tirelessly work to establish a Queensland university, sitting on the 1891 royal commission investigating this matter. When the University of Queensland opened for students in 1911, he was vice-chancellor, effectively deputy chancellor. He died in St Martin's Hospital, Brisbane, on 21 September 1926.[Information taken from the Australian Dictionary of Biography, 19 October 2015]
