Senator for Queensland, 1965–74 (Democratic Labor Party)

Vincent Clare Gair was born in Rockhampton, Queensland, on 25 February 1901. He was the eighth of the ten children of John Alexander Gair, prison warder, and Catherine Mary, née Maguire.

John Gair immigrated to Queensland from Scotland in 1885, where he had worked as a publican and hospital orderly. He was a ‘strict disciplinarian’ and ‘a life-long supporter of the Labour Party’, but the principal parental influence on young Vince seems to have been his Irish-born mother. Catherine, a former nurse, was politically active and a member of the Rockhampton Workers’ Political Organisation, a precursor to the ALP in Queensland. She would take her son to meetings, and he joined the Labor Party before he was old enough to vote.
