History

Charles Archibald Hoadley was first educated at Wesley College. He then attended the University of Melbourne, where he studied science and mining engineering.[1]

In 1912, Hoadley joined the Mawson Antarctic expedition as Geologist at Western Base, Queen Mary Land. Although he volunteered to join the Australian expedition for relief of the Shackleton exploring party in 1916, Hoadley did not return to Antarctica.[2]

When Hoadley returned from Antarctica in 1913, he completed his Master of Science, receiving the Caroline Kay scholarship for his work in geology.[3]

Between 1914 and 1916, Hoadley was a staffmember of the Ballarat School of Mines, where he lectured in Surveying, Engineering, Mining and Physics,[4] and was Secretary for the Ballarat Science and Field Naturalists Club[5]. In 1916, Hoadley was appointed Headmaster of the Technical School at Footscray.[6].
