AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Dad in Politics ' consists of eleven stories involving Dad Rudd's career as the Member for Eton, (Chapters I-XI). The stories involving Dad as the Member for Eton (the 'Dad in Politics' stories) initially appeared as eight individual stories in Steele Rudd's Magazine in 1904-1905. When published in book form in 1908, the order in which the stories originally appeared was retained, however a number of changes were made to the format. Some stories were divided into two or more chapters, some story titles were added or altered, and a number of minor changes were also made to the text.

The Ghost of Dad Rudd, on the Stump Julieanne Lamond , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 6 no. 1 2007; (p. 19-32)
'This paper examines the cultural and political legacies of Dad Rudd, a fictional character who first appeared in short stories by 'Steele Rudd' (A. H. Davis) in the Bulletin in 1895 and has since appeared in popular fiction, theatre, film, television and radio adaptations throughout the twentieth century. It traces a set of national tropes - particularly that of the battler - through stump speeches made by Dad Rudd in On Our Selection! (1899), Dad in Politics (1908), the stage melodrama On Our Selection (1912), and Ken G. Hall's film Dad Rudd, M.P. (1940), and considers how they have continued to be used to create both political and cultural constituencies in Australia.'
