AbstractHistoryArchive Description

During the 1940s and '50s, in Australia, many icons of Aboriginal descent rose to prominence, and were representative of the culture of the day, and of their own people. Some permanently influenced the minds of Australians, remaining famous to this day - others have been unjustly forgotten. (From Libraries Australia record.)
