Abstract

William McKenzie was a Chaplain in the First AIF who achieved legendary status during and after the Great War. Stories about him abounded, some gaining sufficient credibility to be included in formal biographies and entries in published dictionaries of biography. This paper explores the legends and seeks to establish their factuality, as well as attempt to explain the source, motivation and reason for the success of the legends.
