Example text

Brian Fitzpatrick, The Australian Commonwealth: A Picture of the Community 1901–1955, FW Cheshire, Melbourne, 1956. Brian Fitzpatrick and Rowan J Cahill, The Seamen’s Union of Australia 1872–1972, Seamen’s Union of Australia, Sydney, 1972; Ian Turner explains the commission in his introduction to A Short History of the Australian Labor Movement, p. 26, and Fitzpatrick regretted the union’s failure to publish it in a letter to Clem Christesen, 29 February 1956, Meanjin archives, The University of Melbourne.

He had little sympathy for ‘Manning’s clouds of errata and Flaws and Moles and Mysticism’, but sprang instinctively to his defence when ‘the egregious [Malcolm] Ellis’ attacked the first volume of Clark’s History. 52 He did read the History and it confirmed his expectations. 53 Even his belated reply to Clark’s inaugural lecture on ‘Rewriting Australian History’ was written at the suggestion of his wife Dorothy. As he explained to Clem Christesen, The genesis is in fact Doff’s. 54 The differences with Clark are acknowledged but they are means to an end.

I have found no evidence of Fitzpatrick’s reaction to the publication of ‘Portrait of a Freethinker’. It appeared in Quadrant in 1962, so he must have read it and noticed its provenance. The hostile portrait clearly marked a change in the relationship—the younger man now occupied the position of authority while Fitzpatrick had become the recipient of his patronage—but it also revealed Clark’s egocentric preoccupation with his own experience. Always sensitive to criticism, he seemed oblivious to the damage he could inflict with his judgements of others; or perhaps he simply assumed an artistic licence to tell of his quest for grace regardless of the consequences for the lost souls.
