Fifty Years of Politics and Public Life: The Bannon Collection

The Bannon Collection represents a rich resource for Australian history at both State and Federal level, including personal letters, photographs, audio-visual material, marginalia, ephemera and press clippings. It includes official documents from John Bannon’s term as the second-longest serving Premier of South Australia, and other material from his earlier career, as an adviser in the Whitlam Government and as a public servant in SA, as well as his more recent activities as an historian, a Director of the ABC Board, and head of St Mark’s College. The Dunstan Collection is also housed in Special Collections at Flinders University, and the addition of this unique material means that primary sources relating to public affairs and politics over more than sixty years, and SA’s Labor leadership covering a period from 1967 to 1992, are available for future generations of researchers.

To be launched by the Hon. Mike Rann

3.30 to 5pm, Friday 16 November 2012, Noel Stockdale Room, Central Library, Flinders University
