Description

This is part of a collection donated by Bernard Freedman (1925-2011).

London-born Freedman emigrated to Australia in 1948. Already an experienced journalist, he worked at both The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) and The Argus (Melbourne). In 1951 he moved to Canberra, as a political correspondent for The Argus, where he covered high-profile events such as the 1954 Royal Tour by Queen Elizabeth II, and the Petrov Affair. In 1955 Friedman began a 25 year long career with the Department of Immigration. In 1981 became the Canberra Press Gallery correspondent for the Australian Jewish News.

This collection relates to various aspects of Freedman's life, including his involvement as a journalist in the political life of Australia.
