AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'THE release of the 381-page oral history recorded by former governor-general John Kerr with the National Library reveals that he was repeatedly approached about Liberal Party preselection, offered the presidency of the Democratic Labor Party and was in the permanent thrall of Garfield Barwick.

'Kerr's oral history, published exclusively in The Weekend Australian, offers dramatic insights into Australia's political, judicial and social history during the turbulent mid-decades of the 20th century.' (The Weekend Australian, 6-7 April, 2013)
