Geoffrey Dutton AO (1922-1998) was a prodigious writer whose published works comprise prose, novels, children’s books, biographies, art history and literary criticism. A native of South Australia, raised on his family's magnificent property 'Anlaby', he was educated at Geelong Grammar and the University of Adelaide; after the war, during which he became a flying instructor, he entered Magdalen College, Oxford. Together with Matt Harris, he founded the Australian Book Review and later Sun Books. He lectured in English at Adelaide University, and worked as an editor for Penguin, the Australian and the Bulletin. Having spent some time as a visiting professor of English at Kansas State University, in 1966 he edited Australia and the Monarchy, and in 1977, Republican Australia. He later became a founding member of the Australian Republican Movement. Dutton’s autobiography, Out in the Open, was published in 1994.
