AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Sir Denison Miller was appointed Governor of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia when it was created in 1912. Critics worried about so much power being held by one man, but Miller's innovative strategies soon made the bank's future secure, and ensured financial resources were available to the Australian government and people during World War I.
