2nd June 2018 Graham WILCOX
An amateur historian who has a special interest in 18th and 19th Century Australian history. This developed partly through his research of the lives of his ancestors who came to Australia from England, Ireland and France.
After writing three books about all his ancestors, he published a book which tells how his great-grandfather Sir Arthur Rutledge, in 1899, ensured Queensland joined the other colonies to become a state of Australia. It was then destined to become a separate country. This book is entitled The Struggle For Unity - A Story of the Federation of Australia.
