Industrialist. Born Italy, 1915. Died July 2006. Born in a poor Italian village in 1915, the young Franco Belgiorno-Nettis worked in his grandfather's blacksmith's shop. On leaving school, he was accepted at the Italian Military Academy where he spent five years training as an engineer. When war broke out Franco was sent to North Africa as a lieutenant in the Italian Army. During the Battle of Tobruk he was taken prisoner and spent the next five years in a British POW camp in India. After returning to Italy he was offered a job as an engineer with a company in Milan. It had a contract to build power transmission lines in Australia and in 1951 Franco worked on the construction of the first steel power transmission line built in this country. Staying on in Australia, he founded his own engineering company, Transfield. Starting with virtually nothing, the company was awarded a contract to build power transmission lines in Port Kembla. Transfield soon became a major industrial force and in 1991 it completed the successful construction of the Sydney Harbour Tunnel. Franco Belgiorno-Nettis was also well known for his generous patronage of the arts and sponsorship of major cultural events
Australian Biography Series 10 : Anne Deveson( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writer, Broadcaster and Filmmaker. Born Malaya, 1930. Writer, broadcaster and filmmaker Anne Deveson has been on the leading edge of social change throughout her varied career. Through her ground-breaking television and radio documentaries, books and articles, and her membership of numerous boards and organisations, she has illuminated social issues and influenced policy in areas from poverty and aging to child abuse and disability. She is perhaps best known for her work on mental illness - an area she became deeply involved in after her son developed schizophrenia, and which she told of in the book Tell Me I’m Here and the film Spinning Out. Born in Malaya in 1930, Anne’s own childhood was a model of comfortable colonialism until World War Two forced her and her mother to move to Western Australia as refugees. In this interview, she recounts many of the personal challenges she has faced, including the difficulties she encountered in 1950s Australia - living with a married man and attempting to establish herself as a serious news journalist. And more recently, while writing her book Resilience, the sudden death of her partner, with whom she’d hoped to spend the rest of her life. A natural communicator, Anne conveys the warmth and compassion that has made her a continuing source of inspiration and hope for many.
