Notes

Sir Kenneth Bailey one of the outstanding men in the legal history of Australia, made a comprehensive and valuable recording for the Oral History Program of the National Library of Australia. He was unable to complete it before his death and Lady Bailey kindly consented to give some of her recollections of the events and people with which she and her husband were associated.

Recorded at her home in Canberra.
