Volume 19 of the Australian Dictionary of Biography (ADB) contains 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. The 680 individuals recorded in volume 19 of the ADB include Wiradjuri midwife and Ngunnawal Elder Violet Bulger; Aboriginal rights activist, poet, playwright and artist Kevin Gilbert; and Torres Strait Islander community leader and land rights campaigner Eddie Mabo. HIV/AIDS child activists Tony Lovegrove and Eve Van Grafhorst have entries, as does conductor Stuart Challender, ‘the first Australian celebrity to go public’ about his HIV/AIDS condition in 1991. The arts are, as always, well-represented, including writers Frank Hardy, Mary Durack and Nene Gare, actors Frank Thring and Leonard Teale and arts patron Ian Potter. We are beginning to see the effects of the steep rise in postwar immigration flow through to the ADB. Artist Joseph Stanislaw Ostoja-Kotkowski was born in Poland. Pilar Moreno de Otaegui, co-founded the Spanish Club of Sydney. Chinese restaurateur and community leader Ming Poon (Dick) Low migrated to Victoria in 1953. Often we have a dearth of information about the domestic lives of our subjects; politician Olive Zakharov, however, bravely disclosed at the Victorian launch of the federal government’s campaign to Stop Violence Against Women in 1993 that she was a survivor of domestic violence in her second marriage. Take a dip into the many fascinating lives of the Australian Dictionary of Biography.

The ThomasD’ArcyMcGee assassination shocked the world more than a hundred and forty-five years ago, in the first year of Canada’s Confederation. McGee was shot through the back of the neck with a Smith & Wesson revolver, at his boarding house door on Sparks Street in Ottawa, having just returned from a late night sitting of the House of Commons around two thirty in the morning, on April 7, 1868. The man who was hanged for the murder claimed he was not the triggerman, although therewas a strong case against himand he admitted to being present. Now it seems he may have been telling the truth. The author of the most recent book on the killing has discovered persuasive evidence of a conspiracy involving American and Canadian Fenians, and he believes there was a hit man and an enforcer, typical of most Fenian assassinations. That book, Understanding the Thomas D’Arcy McGee Assassination, A Legal and Historical Analysis, by Charles MacNab, Q. C., presents a series of interesting, related, well documented lectures that build on each other to pass understanding of theMcGee assassination. Readers can follow McGee in his early Young Ireland days as a young poet, writer, journalist, moderate political leader and fearless patriot; learn of his secret mission to Scotland and northern Ireland at the time of the Irish Rebellion of 1848, and of his providential escape to America; appreciate his mistrust of the militant extremists who had assumed the NewYork Irish leadership during the summer of 1848, and McGee’s own remarkable leadership mission after reaching America, through his Catholic weekly newspaper, the New York Nation; learn the truth aboutMcGee’s divided loyalties to Ireland and Canada, as a Member of the Canadian Parliament and a Cabinet Minister, and his decision to do what he described as his painful duty to oppose the Fenians after 1861 when they began targeting Canada as part of their strategy to obtain Irish independence fromBritain, asMcGee still believed Ireland was being cruellymisgoverned; explore an expanded record and enjoy an analysis that supports the conclusion that theMcGee assassination resulted from a Fenian ordered hit fromNewYork. It is rather odd history. Irish American militants were conducting terrorism from American soil to obtain Irish independence from England in the name of radical republicanism, targeting Britain and Canada with hostage takings, dynamite explosions, and assassinations, including the ugly killing of Thomas D’Arcy McGee. The Canadian Government received a report of the conspiracy behind the McGee assassination fourteen years after the murder. It included signed affidavits fromtwoAmericanswho had participated, and bothmen were prepared to testify in any legal process provided they were granted immunity from prosecution themselves. John A.Macdonald, who was Justice Minister and Prime Minister at the time of the murder, believed that there had been a conspiracy, but he had been unable to persuade the Ontario Premier, Sandfield Macdonald, to authorize a Commission of Inquiry. There were a number of individuals who were charged at the time as accessories, but those prosecutions failed for lack of evidence. Previouswriters have been unable to conclude the assassination was the result of a conspiracy involving the American Fenians, but that is where the freshly discovered evidence leads. There is nothing to indicate John A. Macdonald (who was again Prime Minister in 1882) did anything with that later report, and so it is conceivable that Macdonald decided not to pursue the matter further. Much time had elapsed, and that hanging had already brought closure to a national tragedy. John A. Macdonald’s former law partner, Sir Alexander Campbell, who had been in the Canadian Cabinet at the time of the McGee assassination, is the one who provided that report directly to Macdonald about their “poor friend” McGee. It is a little ironic that it would be Campbell, for Campbell and McGee were never best friends, although they had been Cabinet colleagues, and had sat on the Committee of the Privy Council together before Confederation. Campbell liked to ridicule McGee privately,which probably explains why McGee had let it be known, in the summer of 1867, that Macdonald had offered him Campbell’s position in the Cabinet. Earlier in the year McGee and Charles Tupper had agreed to step aside for an Irish Catholic Senator from Nova Scotia, Edward Kenny, to enable Macdonald to form Canada’s first Government.

The public is familiar with the Emily Dickinson stereotype--an eccentric spinster in a white dress flitting about her father's house, hiding from visitors. But these associations are misguided and should be dismantled. This work aims to remove some of the distorted myths about Dickinson in order to clear a path to her poetry. The entries and short essays should open avenues of debate and individual critical analysis. This companion gives both instructors and readers multiple avenues for study. The entries and charts are intended to prompt ideas for classroom discussion and syllabus planning. Whether the reader is first encountering Dickinson's poems or returning to them, this book aims to inspire interpretative opportunities. The entries and charts make connections between Dickinson poems, ponder the significance of literary, artistic, historical, political or social contexts, and question the interpretations offered by others as they enter the never-ending debates between Dickinson scholars.

What is age? A simple question but not that easy to answer. 'Unmasking Age' addresses it using data from a series of research projects relating to later life. This is supplemented by material from a range of other sources including diaries and fiction. Drawing on a long career in social research, Bill Bytheway critically examines various methods and discusses ways of uncovering the realities of age.
