Research Report 28: TJ Ryan - a centenary note

Emeritus Professor Tom Cochrane writes: 'In May 1915, Queensland saw the election of the Labor government of Thomas Joseph Ryan. One hundred years ago to the day, its assumption of office on 1 June took place. An extraordinary age of reform and change then took place in the next few years in Queensland.'

'T.J. Ryan and the 21st Century - not just a matter of legacy'

Below is a video of Professor Tom Cochrane's address at the TJRyan Foundation's 3rd anniversary event, held at QUT on Tuesday, 14 February 2017. In it, he suggests that the legacy of Queensland Premier T.J. Ryan is very relevant in Australia today, a century after some of Ryan's most important reforms. With thanks to QUT for capturing the video footage.

Beneath the video is a link to Professor Cochrane's powerpoint slides from his address, kindly provided by the author.
