    Hello My name is Louise Barry and I hope you can help me. My grandfather was William Joseph Barry and was the president of the Federated Clerks Union in Qld until he retired in about 1967.
    I am writing a biography of his life and would love to find out what is known about his work with the union at that time.
    Looking forward to your reply
    kind regards Louise Barry

    There would be a something on him in the digitlaised newspapers section on the NLA website. Eg Cairns Post 19/1/1953.
