Biography/History

Frank Anstey (1865-1940), born in England, arrived in Australia as a stow-away at the age of 11. He worked as a cabin-boy on boats "blackbirding" amongst the Pacific Islands; and back in Australia was active during the 1880's in the Seaman's Union, and the labor movement generally. In 1902, 1904 and 1907 he represented the Victorian Legislative Assembly seat of East Bourke for the Labor Party. Subsequently Anstey held the federal seat of Bourke from 1910 to 1934. During his federal career he was deputy leader of the Fed. Lab. Party (1922) and held the portfolio of Health and Repatriation in the Scullin government (1929-1931). Anstey was fiery speaker and pamphleteer, and his published works include Monopoly and Democracy (1906); War and Finance (1915); Kingdom of Shylock (1915, 1917); Red Europe (1919), and Facts and Theories of Finance (1931).
