  • Australian Dictionary of Biography (online) 8 January 2022: (Howard Walter Florey, Baron Florey of Adelaide and Marston (1898-1968), medical scientist, was born on 24 September 1898 at Malvern, Adelaide. He studied at the University of Adelaide (M.B., B.S., 1921; M.D., 1944) and as a Rhodes scholar at the University of Oxford in physiology (B.A., B.Sc., 1924; M.A., 1935) then transferred in 1924 to the University of Cambridge (Ph.D., 1927; M.A., 1928); from 1927-1931 he lectured in Cambridge, then in Sheffield, and in 1935 became professor of pathology at the Sir William Dunn school of pathology, Oxford; he was to remain in it until 1962; many Australians followed to study with him. He worked on penicillin, which became a vital element in wartime. He was also a major contributor to the establishment of the Australian National University and the development of its medical research programs. In 1941 his work on penicillin brought him a fellowship of the Royal Society; he was knighted in 1944, and in 1965 was made a baron, also Chancellor of ANU. He died on 21 February 1968, at Queen's College, Oxford.)
