William McClemans made a lasting contribution to the state of Western Australia through his work as a parish priest and in helping establish St Hilda’s Anglican School for Girls, Guilford Grammar School and Christ Church Grammar School. This biography, which traces the threads of triumph and tragedy through this remarkable life, tells of his early life in Ireland, his ministry to various parishes and his contributions to education. It also covers his traumatic service in WWI, his postwar troubles – exacerbated by the Great Depression – and his later life, when he was supported by his wife and family, several of whom have become well-known Western Australian identities.
