During the 1890s, James George Drake was a prominent Queensland politician who believed in a form of Liberalism which held that the state had a role to play in assisting individuals to make the most of their lives. Drake is now a forgotten historical figure. Yet he was a central player in some of the key events of Queensland history, including the seven-day Labor government of 1899 and the push for Federation. The story of JG Drake concerns a radical Queensland Liberal who valued his independence, and thus found it difficult to prosper politically at a time when party discipline and loyalty were becoming the parliamentary norm.
