Ern McQuillan’s Remarkable Life (Republished 4.9.19)
The world needs to “read all about it!”
I am now into the third year of working with Ernest Mervyn McQuillan OAM, talking regularly with him about his adventures as a leading Australian Press photographer in the twentieth century and exploring his remarkable “I was there” photographs. Together we have crafted materials which are ready to become recorded history. The subject matter is breathtakingly varied: world events and sport of all kinds including horse racing, cricket and several others.

Here are links to posts written about Ern:
Books have been part of my lifetime of work as a teacher. I have been teaching the history of important people, good and bad, for all those years. I am still amazed at my good fortune in knowing Ern. If this relationship tells his stories, that luck will be even greater. I believe also it will add to the lives of every future reader.
These pictures and comments are just an iceberg tip. THE REST MAKE AN AMAZING STORY.
There is the potential for several books – on our nation’s twentieth century history, and on remarkable, passionate incidents for several sporting categories.
Any publisher (film, video, TV or Text) will find us willing and I believe able colleagues.
Royce (for Ern).
