About The Author

Sampson (Dr John C.)

Sampson (Dr John C.)

John Sampson grew up in the small country town of Katanning in Western Australia before moving to Perth and being awarded a scholarship to Perth Modern School. On matriculation he studied at the University of Western Australia and graduated with a PhD in Zoology.

He then moved to Melbourne and taught zoology at the Melbourne College of Education before moving to Washington DC where he joined a small team at the American Chemical Society to produce an innovative Junior High School Science textbook, with funding from the National Science Foundation. From here he became a subeditor of ACS magazine Chemical Health and Safety.

On returning to Australia John joined the Victorian Baptist Historical Society and became interested in Baptist History, spending ten years as a volunteer archivist for the Baptist Union of Victoria.

Family Matters is the story of how some market gardeners, miners, general carriers and dairymen teamed up with a sickly school teacher, a very successful undertaker and a clerk in the miners office to establish Kew Baptist Church
