AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A Sydney reporter remarked on the death of Dr. John Dunmore Lang in August 1878, "Posterity will not be at any loss for materials of his political career." The Doctor prided himself on a lifetime which would leave indelible "footprints on the sands of time in Australia", as a contemporary noted, "Dr Lang is great in autobiography.........It is a weakness of his to regard himself as the centre of surrounding circumstances, and not only to declare how those circumstances, affected him, but how he affected the circumstances.....No politician has talked so much about himself, and so constantly challenged admiration for what he has said, thought and written.'
