Introduction

Scope and Contents

Although there are some personal papers extending back to Else-Mitchell's childhood and early career, the great bulk of the papers held in the National Library date from the period 1974-94, when he was living in Canberra. The largest series relates to the Commonwealth Grants Commission, of which he was Chairman for 15 years, and there are also files on other agencies of the Commonwealth Government, such as the Commonwealth Legal Aid Council and the National Library. There are substantial series on the Royal Australian Institute of Public Administration, the Australian Institute of Urban Studies, the Canberra College of Advanced Education and the Royal Australian Historical Society and the collection as a whole provides a comprehensive record of Else-Mitchell's work for a great diversity of official, legal, professional, educational and cultural institutions. The papers include correspondence, diaries, reports, speeches, articles, manuscripts, cuttings, photographs, printed ephemera and publications.

Provenance

Justice Else-Mitchell first placed papers in the National Library in 1981. He had earlier donated a considerable quantity of papers to the Mitchell Library in Sydney but decided that the later papers documenting his involvement in a range of national organisations should be in the National Library.

Further papers were received in 1984, 1985, 1986, 1989, 1991 and 1995.

The 1989 and 1991 instalments were donated under the Taxation Incentives for the Arts Scheme.

In addition to the collection in the Mitchell Library, further papers of Else-Mitchell are held in the Australian Archives and Canberra University Library.

Rae Else- Mitchell was born in Sydney on 20 September 1914. He was educated at Middle Park Central School, Melbourne High School and the University of Sydney, where he graduated as a Bachelor of Laws in 1936. He was called to the New South Wales Bar in 1939 and the Victorian Bar in 1954. In 1943-45 he was Secretary of the Commonwealth Rationing Commission. He was editor of the Australian Law Journal in 1946-58 and a lecturer in Constitutional Law at the University of Sydney in 1951-58. He was made a Queen's Counsel in 1955.

Else-Mitchell was appointed a Judge of the New South Wales Supreme Court on 8 September 1958. In 1962 he was appointed a Judge of the Land and Valuation Court. He was Chairman of the New South Wales Royal Commission into Local Government Land Valuation and Rating Systems in 1965-67 and Chairman of the Commonwealth Royal Commission on Land Tenures in 1973-75. In October 1974 he retired from the Supreme Court and moved to Canberra to take up the position of Chairman of the Commonwealth Grants Commission. He held this position until July 1989.

Throughout his life Else-Mitchell has held office in an extraordinary number of public, legal, historical, educational, cultural and community organisations. At various times he has been President or Chairman of the Library Council of New South Wales, the Royal Australian Historical Society, the Federation of Australian Historical Societies, the Royal Australian Institute of Public Administration, the Australian Institute of Urban Studies, the New South Wales Medico-Legal Society, St Vincent's Hospital Board and the ACT Library Service. He was the first Deputy Chancellor of Macquarie University and a member of the Councils of the Canberra College of Advanced Eucation, the National Library of Australia, the National Trust of Australia, the Centre for Research on Federal Financial Relations at the Australian National University and the Australian Bicentennial Authority.

Else-Mitchell was the author of Hire purchase law (1941), edited Essays on the Australian Constitution (1952) and Canberra; a people's capital? (1988) and has written numerous articles on Australian history, law, public administration, planning, public finance and land valuation.
