Book Description Hyland House, Melbourne, 1997. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. xi 371pp, index, bw ills. Or green cloth in jacket. Slight fading to spine of jacket. Biography of the first chairman of the CSIRO, ABC broadcaster, champion of Australia's wool industry and scientist. His pioneering research into parasites and wool production enabled Australia to 'ride on the sheep's back". During war time he became known as a news commentator, and as a senior government advisor he was one of the architects of Australia's post-war scientific boom. The emergence of radio astronomy, the introduction of myxomytosis to control rabbits and major advances in wool production all occurred during his stewardship of the CSIRO-he even injected himself with the myxomytosis virus to show it was safe for humans. Interesting biography of one of the greats of Australian science and the man on the $100 bill. Size: 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 014519
