Sir Robert Philp (1851–1922) co-founded Burns, Philp & Co., a South Pacific commercial empire with its origins in North Queensland. Philp was also Premier of Queensland at the turn of the twentieth century and made major contributions to public life over several decades. This fine biography tells the story of a politician who was involved in many of the significant issues affecting Queenslanders and Australians from the 1880s to the 1920s, including Federation, the First World War and the development of the tropics.
