The political life of Australia's fourth prime minister, George Reid, was only one part of his contribution to his colony and country. Historian Dr David Headon illuminates the significant and surprising legacy of this all-but-forgotten figure.
As part of this event Dr Eileen Chanin, Research Associate at the Australian Studies Institute, will launch her new book Capital Designs: Australia House and Visions of an Imperial London with special guest introduction by Philip Flood AO. The book will be available for purchase and for signing by Dr Chanin.
This event is co-hosted by the National Archives of Australia and the Australian Studies Institute (ANU).
