From the Labor bastion of Balmain to the vice-regal residence at Yarralumla: this is the conventional; picture of Sir John Kerr’s rise. How did it really happen? The brilliant student at Fort Street Boys High knocked on Mr. Justice Evatt’s door and found his first patron. Patronage became the pattern of his life. One by one he had the help of Bert Evatt, Alf Conlon, Eddie Ward and Bob Santamaria, carried out their plans and then discarded them.
