Biography/History

Australian journalist. Rupert Ernest Lockwood was born in Natimuk, Victoria. His father produced a rural newspaper and Lockwood's first experiences as a journalist were at age fourteen, reporting local news. His official career started in 1930 at the Melbourne Herald but in 1935 he travelled overseas to work as a journalist in Singapore, throughout South East Asia, Japan and China, then via Russia to London. From there he travelled to Europe, experiencing firsthand the rise of fascism in Germany, Italy and Spain. In 1938 he returned to Australia and in 1939 joined the Communist Party of Australia. Thereafter, Lockwood worked mainly in labour journalism, including over thirty years as associate editor of the Waterside Workers Federation journal, Maritime worker, and three years as the Communist Tribune Moscow correspondent 1965-1968. In 1954 Lockwood became embroiled in the Petrov Affair and was extensively cross-examined during the Royal Commission into Espionage in Australia 1954-1955.
