A democratic collection. Viewing of the Trevor Kennedy collection, Phillip Black
Trevor Kennedy AM has always been larger than life than most people, both in his business career and now his eclectic Australiana collection. Born and educated in Western Australia, he became a prominent Australian journalist, businessman and company director, serving on many company boards. As a journalist Trevor Kennedy was editor of The Bulletin, founding editor of The National Times in the 1970s and from 1986–91 served as editor in chief and managing director of Consolidated Press Holdings Ltd. For his services to the media, he was appointed a Member in the Ordinary Division of the Order of Australia (AM) in 1983. In 2003 he resigned his positions as a director of seven public companies and dedicated his time to his collection. He has long been a member of the Australiana Society, and avidly reads our magazine Australiana.
