Link to the original writings of Dr A.M. Woodbury

Fr. A.M. Woodbury PhD., S.T.D., founded Sydney’s Aquinas Academy in 1943 for the instruction primarily of members of Australia's Catholic laity.  He continued as its Regent until his retirement in the 1970’s when the institution was taken over by philosophers and theologians of the Society of Mary whose doctrine departed from that of the Academy's founder.
One may now gain access to many of Dr. Woodbury's texts, after registering with the site's proprietors and agreeing to terms and conditions posed, at the website
It is difficult to find an institution where one may gain a proper understanding of the metaphysical view of reality taught by St Thomas.  By this we mean, one where the mind of St Thomas is not compromised by deference to the demands of modern  philosophy. Sydney’s Centre for Catholic Studies (formerly the Centre for Thomistic Studies), successor of the Aquinas Academy, is one such institution— 
Intending students of St Thomas's teaching may find the lessons in basic philosophical principles provided on under the title 'Professor Solomon's Introduction to Philosophy' will whet their appetite for the more profound teaching available from the texts of Dr. Woodbury.
