Book description

For almost two and a half decades, Sir Paul Hasluck was one of Australia’s most prominent politicians. Born in Fremantle in 1905 and educated at Perth Modern School and the University of Western Australia, Hasluck worked for The West Australian newspaper and lectured at the University of Western Australia before moving into politics in 1949. After two decades in politics, including a variety of ministerial responsibilities, Hasluck was appointed as the 17th Governor General of Australia in 1969. This biography includes Sir Paul Hasluck’s experience working for the Department of External Affairs during World War II. Also, it covers his career as a writer, poet, historian, and politician, providing a complete and enthralling portrait of one of Australia’s great men.
