The Corio Oval Tribe : a prosopographical perspective of the Geelong Football Club in the nineteenth century
Pennings, Mark W. & Pascoe, Robert (2012) The Corio Oval Tribe : a prosopographical perspective of the Geelong Football Club in the nineteenth century. Sporting Traditions, 29(1), pp. 77-94.
This article analyses the occupational and class status of Geelong footballers in the nineteenth century via the methodology of prosopography. Prosopography is an empirical group biography approach to historical research. The article argues that during the period 1859-78 Geelong's playing group was largely derived from the squattocracy and urban middle class. In the later period 1878-96 the Geelong club recruited more widely from the working class, as in keeping with the increased participation of this class in football from the late 1870s. It can be argued that this more diverse group helped establish Geelong as a footballing power.
