Jane Franklin Hall

Jane Franklin Hall in South Hobart, Tasmania, is a non-denominational residential college of the University of Tasmania. Familiarly referred to as ‘Jane’, it was founded by the Tasmanian Council of Churches in 1950 as a residential college for women before becoming co-educational in 1973. Jane is a non-denominational Christian institution unobtrusively supported by chaplains of various Christian faiths.

Although there is no direct link between them, the college is named in honour of Jane, Lady Franklin, wife of the famous but ill-fated Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin, who from 1837 to 1843 was the sixth Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land. The college seeks to embrace Lady Jane as a patron and places a high value on education and the arts.

    I may be able to spot arrowheads on the desert but a refrigerator is a jungle in which I am easily lost. My wife, however, will unerringly point out that the cheese or the leftover roast is hiding right in front of my eyes. Hundreds of such experiences convince me that men and women often inhabit quite different visual worlds. These are differences which cannot be attributed to variations in visual acuity. Man and women simply have learned to use their eyes in very different ways.
    —Edward T. Hall (b. 1914)

    Maybe now you, you don’t want to believe it. Maybe you’d like to tell yourself it didn’t happen. But Steve, you’re not the kind of person that can turn your back on something you know is true.
    —Theodore Simonson. Irvin S. Yeaworth, Jr.. Jane Martin (Aneta Corseaut)

    A benevolent man should allow a few faults in himself, to keep his friends in countenance.
