Biography
  • Born in 1870 at Mount Barker, S. Aust, he moved to Perth, W.A. in 1892. After becoming active in the union movement, he was elected as a Labor representative to the first Australian Senate as a Senator for W.A. in 1901. He was a Minister for Defence (1908-1909, 1910-1913, 1914-21, 1932-1934) for successive Labor governments until 1917. He presided over the bitter conscription debate of 1916-1917. Having aligned himself with the "yes" faction of Billy Hughes, he was subsequently expelled from the Labor Party, yet continued to hold office as a member of the new National Party. He also held the position of Minister for Home and Territories (1921-1926) and continued to serve until defeated in the 1937 Election.
