Thomas Pendlebury is an acclaimed American set designer best known for his work in films and magazines. His signature style combines bold shapes with negative space to create striking sets that leave a lasting impression.
He encountered his first professional criticism when an article of his which attempted to place the Siege of Troy within history was attacked by H. R. Hall from the British Museum.
Early Life and Education
Pendlebury was born and raised in Melbourne. He attended both the National Gallery of Victoria Art School and Swinburne Technical College for his education, marrying Eleanor Constance “Nornie” Gude (1915 – 24 January 2002), daughter of Ballarat music teacher Walter Gude.
He conducted his tour of Crete in 1928, experiencing rough sea crossings and hiking along mountainous terrain between Athens and Thebes. When visiting Knossos he noted its restoration projects had left it damaged beyond repair.
In 2006 he was selected for the All Australian team, finishing second in Brownlow votes behind Dane Swan and ahead of Dayne Beams and Sam Mitchell (disqualified). He has won an impressive eight AFL premierships with Collingwood; becoming one of the inaugural players to wear number 16 on their guernsey.
He has earned numerous accolades throughout his career. These include working for top organizations in both Australia and the U.S.; receiving various awards and honors for his efforts; being named to the 2013 Copeland Trophy team and serving as captain of Collingwood Football Club.
He is an incredible teacher and does an incredible job of explaining difficult philosophical topics. Furthermore, his delightful disposition makes classes even more engaging.
Bailey alleges that Wyss’ 1991 display of male genitalia slides from Bhutan, Gennett’s pre-1995 recounting to Bailey of sexual experience with nurse, and Pendlebury’s 1997 distribution to her of a smaller cigar than provided to male colleagues constituted actions which created an unsafe work environment based on sexual discrimination.
Achievement and Honors
Pendlebury made his league football debut against Brisbane at the MCG on September 10, 2014 and became part of an exclusive group to kick a goal with their very first kick! In total, he would play eight more games during his debut year.
He made headlines again in 2011, winning his second Copeland Trophy and coming in equal fourth for the Brownlow Medal – behind teammate Dane Swan. Furthermore, he became Magpies captain in 2021.
Off the field, Dr. Boonstra is also an incredible instructor. A brilliant lecturer with hilarious humor who provides clear explanations for all philosophy readings while being very considerate to students – even allowing us to extend papers! Highly recommended and worthy of consideration in terms of effort expended during this challenging course!
