The Making of a Reformer: Don Dunstan before the Dunstan Decade

Angela Woollacott’s AHA 2016 presidential address, ‘The Making of a Reformer: Don Dunstan before the Dunstan Decade’, will be presented at the 2016 AHA annual conference in Ballarat on the evening of 4 July in the National Heritage Listed Trades Hall. It was built in 1877 as a meeting place for Ballarat’s trade unions and as offices for the Ballarat Trades and Labour Council, and is still in use today. Professor Woollacott’s research project, ‘Don Dunstan and political and social reform in Australia’ is supported by an Australian Research Council Discovery Grant.
