Hector Gilchrist Lusk Mactaggart Kinloch (14 December 1927 – 6 August 1993) was an American-born Australian academic and politician.

Biography

He was born Boston, Massachusetts, in 1927.[citation needed]

He travelled to England, where he graduated from Christ's College, Cambridge with first class honors in history in 1949.[2]

After graduating he served in the US Army for three years.[3] In 1960, he moved to Australia and lectured in history at the University of Adelaide. From 1965-1968, he was Visiting Fulbright Professor of US History at the University of Malaya in Kuala Lumpur. He joined the Australian National University in Canberra in 1968 and remained there until 1988.[4]

He helped establish the National Association for Gambling Studies and was a vociferous critic of the proposed Casino Canberra.[5] Given his anti-gambling stance he was invited by Bernard Collaery of the Residents Rally to be a candidate in the inaugural ACT Legislative Assembly election. He was elected in 1989 and retired in 1992.[citation needed]

He died on 6 August 1993.

Hector Kinloch's childhood was difficult, with many family crises and periods living in Dr Barnado's Homes and foster care.

He was married twice, to Anne Russell from 1955 to 1964 (divorce finalized in 1966), and to Lucy Maniam from December 1966 until his death. In 1993 Lucy was still working at Dickson College.

He was a life-long Christian, and joined the Canberra Regional Meeting of the Society of Friends (Quakers) in May 1971, where he held many active roles. He had a particular interest in the life of the early Quaker John Woolman, and delivered the 1980 Backhouse Lecture on the topic “Quaker Saints and Sinners”.

He travelled widely, including the US, Northern Ireland, England, Australia, and Singapore.

Legacy

Kinloch Circuit in the Canberra suburb of Bruce is named after him, as is the Kinloch UniLodge on the ANU campus, and the north tower of ANU Fenner Hall residence.[6]
