Event description

Description

Come and join legendary Territorian, music icon and former Administrator, Ted Egan AO, to launch his new book, Gilruth. A fascinating exploration of a little-known and explosive period in the history of Darwin.

John Anderson Gilruth was the first Commonwealth Administrator of the Northern Territory, serving in that capacity from 1912 to 1919. Previously an esteemed scientist, Dr Gilruth's appointment was controversial from the moment he and his family arrived at Government House, Darwin.

In this book – certainly the most comprehensive coverage of Gilruth's term as Administrator – Ted Egan seeks a better understanding of this complex man.
