'This is a time to celebrate the life and achievements of Constance De Mestre Healy, known as Connie. She was born 93 years ago in Sydney on May 30, 1923 to Eric and Kate Lovegrove, and was the third of three sisters. Her older sisters were Florence and Patricia, known as Pat. The three sisters were to support the cause of organised labour and socialism all of their lives. I should add that this commitment was not without its costs, but they remained steadfast and passed on their socialist ideals to their children.' (Introduction)

1 The Literature of Contact J. J. Healy , 1989 single work criticism
— Appears in: Literature and the Aborigine in Australia 1770- 1975 1989; (p. 26-48)
This chapter examines the earliest works of fiction produced in Australia representing Aboriginal people as fictional characters.

Nineteenth century representations by G. W. Rusden and James Tucker are also analysed.
