PRIM E M IN IS TE R

FOR MEDIA 23 MAY 1991

I am very saddened to learn of the death of Manning Clark. A great Australian, Manning Clark's contribution to the knowledge and understanding by Australians of their own country and themselves will stand as a lasting monument to his intellect, scholarship and dedication.

His "A History of Australia" will remain for many years as an invaluable reference point for all Australians who seek to learn about the forces, struggles and events which have shaped the Australia of the 1990s and beyond.

I extend my deepest sympathy to his wife Dymphnat and his family.
