Scope and Content Note

Part available for research (Series 25); part requires permission for research; part not available for research until 2020 (Series 3/Box 100/Folder 6; Series 24). Not for loan.

The papers were either donated to the Library (under the Taxation Incentives for the Arts Scheme) by Zubrzycki or purchased from him in several instalments between 1993 and 1999.

The collection documents many aspects of Zubrzycki’s long career as an academic with the Australian National University and his participation in a number of organisations and government bodies. These include the Australian Ethnic Affairs Council, the Australian Immigration Advisory Council, the National Multicultural Advisory Council, Australian Aid to Poland, the World Health Organisation Fourth World Project, the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences at the Vatican and the National Museum of Australia.

The collection includes correspondence, drafts, typescripts, and offprints of many of Zubrzycki’s publications, radio scripts and lectures and meeting agendas, minutes, and reports from various organisations.

The papers also include a large body of personal correspondence, mainly in Polish, and a collection of personal memorabilia, including school reports and exercise books, wartime documents and ticket stubs, passports and photos.

The initial consignment of records was received by the Library in January 1982 and has been added to several times since this date most recently in 1999.

A caricature of Zubrzycki drawn by Geoff Pryor in 1975, is held in the Library’s Pictorial Section.


Biographical Note

Jerzy (George) Zubrzycki was born in Krakow, Poland on 12 January 1920. In 1938, he entered the Cavalry Officer Cadet School (Szkola Podchorazych Rezerwy Kawalerii) in Grudziadz (Northern Poland) to complete a year’s compulsory Military Service before beginning university studies. Graduating in June 1939, he was essentially sent straight to the front to fight the invading German Army. He was taken prisoner by the Germans in September 1939, but escaped and served with the Polish underground movement eventually making his way to France, via Slovakia, Hungary, Yugoslavia and Italy. Evacuated to Britain in June 1940, he served with the Polish Parachute Brigade, and the Polish Section of the Special Operations Executive (SOE).

In September 1945 Zubrzycki began studies at the London School of Economics, graduating in 1952 with a M.Sc.Econ in population studies. He then enrolled and completed a PhD at the Free Polish University in London.

In 1955 Zubrzycki accepted a post in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University (ANU) and immigrated with his family to Australia in December 1955. He continued to work at the ANU until his retirement in 1986, founding the Department of Sociology in 1970.

Zubrzycki has written extensively on immigration and has served on many government councils and inquiries into Australian immigration and multicultural policies. He has also been involved in a number of other organisations, including Lifeline, the Australian Family Association and the National Museum of Australia. Since 1994, he has been a member of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences.

Zubrzycki was awarded a MBE Mily in 1945, a CBE in 1978 and made an Officer of the Order of Australia in 1984. He died on 20 May 2009, and is survived by his wife, Alexandra, four children and eight grandchildren.
