Abstract Jackie Templeton was a student, tutor and academic in the History Department at the University of Melbourne for well over half her life, entering as a student in 1952 and retiring at the end of 1999. An extraordinarily warm and humane person, Jackie was never one of the most productive members of the Department in terms of her research output. She was, however, a much appreciated teacher and a fondly-regarded and respected colleague. She was also obsessed, for much of the latter part of her career, with Italian migration to Australia, and was gradually working her way towards her crowning academic achievement – this book – when she was cruelly afflicted with a terminal illness, and then – mercifully perhaps – spared many agonies by a sudden stroke that took her life in 2000. This book sees the light of day through the efforts of some close friends and colleagues – principally John Lack, but also Liz Freeman, Lucy Mills and Giconda Di Lorenzo.
