Financial & Institutional Support
This research was supported by the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council’s Discovery Projects funding scheme. The views expressed herein are those of the author and are not necessarily those of the Australian Government or Australian Research Council.
My research was also supported by the University of Technology Sydney, which provided me with research time and material support. I’d particularly like to thank UTS Library who supplemented their archive of the work of Norman Lindsay with a major collection of the work of Jack Lindsay.
Helen Lindsay & Family
I would like to thank Helen Lindsay and Adrian Palka and their children, Leon and Ella for their hospitality over many years. Helen, Adrian and I have shared many thoughts and memories of Jack over the years, including my own stories of visiting Jack at Castle Hedingham to talk about the wonderful book he had written on William Morris. We have also shared thoughts on art and politics, the role of universities, the relationship between different art-forms, the ecology of Norfolk – all topics that Jack would heartily approve.
A number of research assistants worked on this project and I thank them for their work and for their enthusiasm, which was always inspiring: Dr Amelia Gledhill, Dr Cathy Hawkins, Ms Jan Idle, Ms Emma Fraser.
Finally, I’d like to acknowledge the support of my cultural studies colleagues at UTS who keep asking me for the next instalment in my story of the remarkable life of Jack Lindsay.
