Dick Boyer, an Australian humanist by Geoffrey Bolton( Book )

8 editions published in 1967 in English and Undetermined and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sir Richard Boyer, K.B.E., Dick Boyer to all who knew him, was a man of many careers. First Methodist minister stationed in Canberra, pioneer of a western Queensland sheep-run, humanist and internationalist, and finally chairman of the Australian Broadcasting Commission during the critical years between 1945 and his death in 1961, Boyer attempted to put into practice the classic principles of liberalism in the pragmatic realities of Australian public life. This biography attempts to show how Boyer's liberalism survived in the face of government and public pressures. Throughout his years with the A.B.C., Boyer fought against constant interference from politicians and others who wished to influence the A.B.C.'s policy. He died fighting his last battle for this freedom. Though primarily a portrait of a man, this book is also an account of the A.B.C. and of the struggles and clashes of personality inevitably involved in the life of such an organization. Boyer's years as chairman covered the critical period of the introduction of television to Australia, an event which had a profound effect on Australian society

"The first camera in the north of Australia belonged to an enthusiastic amateur photographer, Richard Daintree (1832-78).

His Queensland photographs are a unique record of the first years of contact between squatters and Aborigines, the birth of a gold-rush, and the infancy of Brisbane and the country towns of the North."--Book jacket
