The Curious Edward Smith Hall – Forgotten Champion of the Underdog

"The Curious Edward Smith Hall - Forgotten Champion of the Underdog", a talk by Ken Smith OAM

Edward Smith Hall was a political reformer, newspaper editor and banker in colonial NSW and was honoured as the father of Australian civil liberties. Yet he was referred to as a “revolutionary scribbler” and a dangerous agitator. The talk will outline why this occurred and why his name fell into obscurity.
