Alexander Macleay From Scotland To Sydney

Hardback

Sydney's colonial society loved to ridicule the colourful and controversial figure of Alexander Macleay. Likewise, historians over the years have either criticised or completely ignored him. But when it came to serious matters, such as who was to be Australia?s first Speaker in the Legislative Council in 1843, public opinion changed. For there simply was no other person in the colony whose experience and skills matched those of Alexander Macleay. The story of the man who introduced wisteria to Australia as well as the stunning jacaranda whose mauve flowers adorn Sydney each October, is traced from the remote north of Scotland, and to London and the Linnean Society, and through his latter years in Sydney where he took up the position of Colonial Secretary in 1826
