[Extract] The Fryer Library boasts the largest collection of James George Drake's private papers in Australia, along with complete runs of the politically-charged periodicals which Drake edited or co-edited: The Boomerang, Progress and Commonwealth. Through an examination of these documents, Mr Drake comes alive. The Fryer Library's collections show Drake to be a passionate man in love with a vision of Queensland Liberalism that he clung to even as the rise of Labor dramatically changed the nature of Australian politics.
