Editor's Odyssey: A Reminiscence of Civil Service, 1945 to 1985 

Henry Speagle


In a series of engaging pen portraits and vignettes, Henry Speagle recalls the distinguished Australians whom he met during his 25 year editorship of the Victorian Year Book people such as Chifley, Casey, McEwen, Bolte, Hamer, and many others then prominent in national and Victorian government, politics and academia. As Geoffrey Blainey states in his Foreword, The book is generous in spirit, friendly towards human frailty and quick to praise where praise is due.
