Museum of Australian Democracy Oral histories

In December the The Museum of Australian Democracy (MoAD) at Old Parliament House in Canberra announced: “We are gradually putting our ‘open access’ oral histories on-line in full. MoAD records and collects interviews relating to Australian parliamentary democracy, political party activism and the story of the Old Parliament House heritage building, which was home to Australia’s national parliament from 1927 to 1988.

Our first batch of on-line interviews include three legends of the Australian Parliamentary Press Gallery (Wal Brown, Rob Chalmers and Bernard Freedman), memories of the 1954 ‘Petrov Affair’, and a long-time policeman Jack Dealy.
