The Biographical Dictionary of the Australian Senate is an authoritative work of reference on the lives and careers of senators of the Federal Parliament. This third volume contains articles on the 104 senators and four clerks of the Senate whose parliamentary service ended during the period of rapid social and political change: 1962-1983. It highlights the achievements of some of the Senate's trailblazers: the first Aboriginal senator Neville Bonner, first Jewish senator Sam Cohen, the first ACT senator John Knight and a cohort of pioneering women in the Senate who followed the election of DorothyTangney in 1943.
