Henry Brose graduated from the University of Adelaide in 1909 with a B.Sc. and, after a period teaching French at Prince Alfred College, was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship in 1913. Brose became interested in the Theory of Relativity after meeting Einstein while interned as a civilian prisoner in Germany between 1914 and 1919. Awarded a Ph.D. in Mathematics at Oxford in 1925, Brose went on to hold a number of academic positions including Lecturer in Physics at the University of Sydney 1926 and Professor of Physics at University College Nottingham 1931-1936. When Einstein visited University College Nottingham in 1930 and 1931, Brose acted as his interpreter. Between 1920 and 1936 he translated a number of German physics texts into English. Later Brose worked in cancer research, holding positions as a physicist, a pathologist and a biochemist, and in Sydney from 1939 to 1965. Brose underwent a second period of internment in NSW and Victoria between 1940 and 1943.
