The Rhodes Scholar, by Box and Cox

Identifier: hogb00001

Scope and Contents

A note with this item reads: 'I have been unable to find out whether this was ever performed. It deals with Victoria University College and may have been submitted for the Capping Carnival of 1907, but the play performed that year was 'The Golden Calf' by 'Munchums'. No idea either who Box and Cox were, but as this script was with the others, presumably they were Julius Hogben and his brother George.'

Full title on item is 'The Rhodes Scholar: being a new and (almost) entirely original comic opera (?) in two acts depicting a phase of University life in Arcadia'.
