Volume 19 of the Australian Dictionary of Biography contains 680 concise biographies of individuals who died between 1991 and 1995. The first of two volumes for the 1990s, it presents a colourful montage of late twentieth-century Australian life, containing the biographies of significant and representative Australians. The volume is still in the shadow of World War II with servicemen and women who enlisted young appearing, but these influences are dimming and there are now increasing numbers of non-white, non-male, non-privileged and non-straight subjects among lives of significant and representative Australians recorded in volume 19 of the ADB.
The launch is being held in the RSSS Auditorium, RSSS Building, 146 Ellery Crescent, ANU, followed by refreshments in the Foyer.
Due to COVID-related restrictions, numbers who can be physically present are limited, making it essential to book a place via the eventbrite link. As a result of a technical issue the launch will not be zoomed live. It will be available online later in the week.
