BeschreibungExcerpt from Australia and New Zealand
The Right Honorable William Morris Hughes is the Premier of Australia. He is an able, conscientious man of unusual ability and indefatigable industry. Born in Wales in 1864, he went to Australia when he was twenty years old, with nothing much but determination and poor health. In 1894 he was elected a labor representative and his political career has been a succession of triumphs. As the War Premier he showed the qualities and courage of a true statesman. In Australia they call him "a piece of political radium." The United States, thru the works of Henry George, contributed to the Premier's political philosophy and influenced taxation policies in Australia. The picture presented herewith is from a photograph of a bronze bust of the Premier made by Professor Derwent Wood, distinguished British sculptor and Royal Academician.
