Features

Sir Albert Chadwick’s life of great achievement is integral to the story of modern Australia.

He defied the difficult circumstances of his impoverished rural upbringing in Tungamah in north-east Victoria to become the president of the nation’s most famous sporting club, the Melbourne Cricket Club.

But he was also a member of one of the most decorated and famous squadrons of the Australian Flying Corps in World War I, a gifted footballer who was captain-coach of the Melbourne Football club’s 1926 Premiership team, a recruiter for the RAAF during World War II, and a skilled businessman who led Victoria’s Gas and Fuel Corporation in the radical transformation.

Authored by Nick Richardson (The Game of their Lives, 2016). Chadwick: A Man of Many Parts is the first full biography published on Sir Albert Chadwick, and is the first publication released by the Melbourne Cricket Club’s publishing support program.
