Scope and Contents

According to Rupert Lockwood's biographer, Rowan Cahill, some of Lockwood's papers were destroyed in a fire in 1957. Certainly there is little in the collection that documents Lockwood's career as a journalist before that date. The papers in the Lockwood collection consist of correspondence, writings, notes, research material, photographs, sound recordings and printed material relating to Lockwood's life as a journalist, writer, Communist Party member, historical, industrial and political researcher, and editor. A major portion of the collection comprises drafts of his pamphlets, articles and books, particularly of Black armada, War on the waterfront and Ship to shore. Notes and research material, including titled subject files, are also abundant. Records documenting Lockwood's role in the Petrov Affair include copies of official records, including 'Document J', correspondence, articles, news cuttings and printed material. Many of the photographs were collected by Lockwood when editor of Maritime worker and reflect the subject matter of that journal. There is also correspondence and submissions from readers sent to him as editor. Family who are represented in the correspondence include Lockwood's siblings, Douglas, Allan and Lionel Lockwood, ex-wife Betty Searle and his children, in particular Penny Lockwood. Other correspondents include Vic Bird, Tim Bowden, Tas Bull, Rowan Cahill, Veronica English, Irina Golovnya, Ken Gott, Jo Hawke, David McKnight, Ron Maxwell, Bernice Morris, Helen Palmer, Katherine Prentice, Paul Stenhouse, Russel Ward, Judah Waten and Douglas Wilkie.


Available for research. Not for loan.


The papers of Rupert Lockwood were received in eleven instalments between 1997 and 2011 from Lockwood's daughter, Penny Lockwood.


The papers were created and collected by Lockwood. After his move to a nursing home, the collection was placed in the custody of his daughter, Penny Lockwood. Ms Lockwood filed a small portion of the papers inside titled files, but in general there was little evidence of order amongst the collection at the time of receipt by the National Library.

Physical arrangement of the collection follows the order in which each successive instalment was received, with the arrangement of files and loose material within the original boxes largely retained. Loose material in some instances has been collocated in containers at the end of the sequence of files within the original box. See the concordance list for locations of files inside boxes and their relationship to original accession/box numbers. Lockwood's files have been retained (sometimes inside plastic bags), but fragile material, loose papers and those originally in envelopes have been rehoused into archival containers by Library staff.

In addition, an artificial intellectual arrangement within a series framework has been imposed on the collection by the Library. Lockwood's file and envelope titles (and/or those of Penny Lockwood) have been retained in the finding aid file titles and can be distinguished from Library-allocated titles by the absence of square brackets. However due to Lockwood's habit of filing material on a range of subjects into the same file/envelope etc, the majority of file titles in the finding aid do not represent all material inside containers. Rather, file titles and descriptions summarise material formats and highlight subjects and/or correspondents which/who are represented inside containers by significant amounts of material.

The National Library holds all Lockwood's published works in its General Collection, with the exception of The miraculous union: a hundred years of waterfront unionism.

In the Manuscript Collection there are also: a typescript of an article entitled "What is in Document J" by Rupert Lockwood at MS 1337; the papers of Lockwood's brother, Douglas Lockwood, at MS 6575; and transcripts of interviews of Lockwood by Tim Bowden at MS 9114.

There is a portrait of Lockwood by Keith Looby held in the Pictures Collection, available online at This portrait was donated to the Library by Penny Lockwood.

In the Oral History Collection, there is: an interview of Lockwood by Hazel de Berg at ORAL TRC 1/1245; and an address by Lockwood at the National Press Club on 11 November 1987 at ORAL TRC 4045.

Papers collected by Rupert Lockwood c.1970 for a written history of the Waterside Workers Federation are held in the Mitchell and Dixson Library Manuscript Collection at the State Library of New South Wales at MLMss1956.

Biographical Note

Rupert Ernest Lockwood was an Australian journalist, writer and editor. He was born in 1908 at Natimuk in the Wimmera region of Victoria, to parents Alfred Wright Lockwood and Alice (nee Francis). After Alice died in 1913, Alfred married a woman of German descent, Ida Dorothea Klowss. This event led to the family being subjected to anti-German harassment, a theme which figures in Rupert Lockwood's autobiographical writings. Alfred was proprietor of the local West Wimmera Mail newspaper, which he used as a forum for expressing his personal views. Alfred also involved his children in the newspaper's production, as a result of which Rupert not only grew up setting type and using the printing machine, but from the age of fourteen was reporting local news. Rupert was educated at Natimuk State School and Wesley College, Melbourne.

In 1930 Lockwood joined the Melbourne Herald as a cadet journalist, and in 1933 became chief Parliamentary press reporter in Canberra. In 1935, he sailed for Singapore, where he undertook a variety of newspaper jobs and travelled throughout South East Asia, China and Japan, witnessing the Japanese military in action in China. He travelled via Trans-Siberian Railway to Russia and thence to London. Here Lockwood joined the Australian Newspaper Service and used this as a basis for travel thoughout Europe, including Germany, Italy and Spain, where he reported from Spanish Civil War fronts in 1937. His experiences in Spain in particular radicalised his existing anti-fascist political leanings, fostered during his time in bohemian Melbourne and by a period as Herald unemployment roundsman.

In 1938 Sir Keith Murdoch recalled Lockwood to Australia, where he resumed his work at the Herald and Canberra press gallery. However Lockwood's involvement with the Australian Council for Civil Liberties and an incident in which he insulted Deputy Prime Minister Menzies at a Canberra Press Gallery dinner, led to Herald management disapproval and Lockwood seeking employment elsewhere in 1939. In this year he also joined the Communist Party of Australia (CPA), and although he kept his membership a secret until 1942 when the Party was legalised, he became the subject of Commonwealth Investigation Branch surveillance. Lockwood produced a number of communist pamphlets and became a regular public speaker for the CPA during the 1940s-1950s.

Lockwood worked for ABC Weekly and the labour paper Daily News over the next two years. Thereafter he worked in labour movement journalism for the next 45 years, including as associate editor of the Waterside Workers Federation journal, Maritime Worker, 1952-1985, and as Communist newspaper Tribune Moscow correspondent 1965-1968. During this latter period Lockwood toured Roumania, Czecholslovakia, Bulgaria, Poland, East Germany and Hungary and inside the USSR. His articles were published in Pravda and other Soviet, East German, Hungarian and Bulgarian newspapers. After his return to Australia in 1968, Lockwood began to disengage from the CPA.

Lockwood was brought to public notoriety in 1954 at the time of the defection of Soviet spies Vladimir and Evdokia Petrov. During the Royal Commission into Espionage in Australia in 1954-1955, Locwood was examined for nine days in the witness box regarding the authorship of a document, known as 'Document J', which was handed to ASIO by Petrov. He was ultimately cleared of being a Soviet agent, but the Petrov Affair remained the incident for which he was best-known. In later years he was sought after by students, television and film producers and journalists, particularly for his knowledge of the 1930s-1950s.

Apart from his writings as a journalist and pamphleteer, Lockwood's published a number of books, including Black armada (1975), Humour is their weapon (1985), War on the waterfront (1987), and Ship to shore (1990).

Lockwood died in 1997, survived by his ex-wife, Betty Searle, and daughters Penny, Althea and Andria.

This series comprises letters and cards to Lockwood, largely for the period from the 1960s to his later years in hospitals and nursing homes.

In addition there is correspondence with publishers, Waterside Workers Federation office bearers, Maritime Worker readers and contributors, and union colleagues.

Series 3. Communism and the Petrov Affair, 1916-1997 (bulk 1941-1991)

Lockwood joined the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) in 1939, an action which attracted government surveillance over a prolonged period. After World War II, he represented the CPA in Europe and was leader of the Australian delegation to the World Peace Congress in Paris, 1949. He became embroiled in the 1954 Royal Commission into Espionage in Australia after the defection of Vladimir and Evdokia Petrov, largely in relation to the authorship of what was termed 'Document J', a background briefing document on Australian politics and history supplied to Tass News Agency correspondent, Viktor Antonov. Lockwood confessed that he had written parts of the document but claimed that it had been altered by an unknown third party. Lockwood worked for the CPA's newspaper, the Tribune, as their Moscow correspondent between 1965-1968. His experiences in Moscow led to disillusionment with Soviet-style Communism and on his return to Australia he resigned from CPA and published a series of articles in 1970 in The Australian newspaper explaining his change of view (see 'The Lockwood file' in File 140, Box 22). Lockwood was also interviewed by ABC's Tim Bowden for a number of programs in the 1970s relating to his CPA membership and role in the Petrov Affair.

This series includes: copies of 'Document J'; surveillance reports by the Commonwealth Investigation Branch; articles and conference papers by Lockwood and others (principally Rowan Cahill) and research material, news cuttings, drafts and notes about the Soviet Union, Communism, Petrov, Lockwood's association with Communism and other related material; papers dating from his period as Tribune correspondent; and transcripts of ABC interviews of Lockwood. Due to Lockwood's habit of filing a range of material together, papers relevant to this series may also be found throughout the collection, particularly in Series 1, Correspondence (letters to and from Lockwood during his time in Moscow), Series 8, Notebooks and notes (some of which appear to document the same period), and Series 9, Subject files.

Series 7. Other writings of Rupert Lockwood, 1929-1994 (bulk 1960-1993)

This series comprises drafts, manuscripts and copies of Lockwood's writings on a range of subjects, including excerpts from unidentified books, articles, seminar papers, speech texts and lists ('catalogues') of Lockwood's published works. In some instances the published title is written on the container or suggested by the header which Lockwood used on most of his writings. However in many cases the title of the work is unclear or the typed information may in fact be research notes collated by Lockwood. A significant amount of material relates to the history of German immigrants, Lutherans and Wends in Australia, which Lockwood refers to in autobiographical writings (eg 'Wimmera Boyhood', published in Overland, see Bag 243, Box 36 in this series). See Series 5, Black armada and Series 6, War on the waterfront for material relating specifically to these books, and Series 4, Waterside Workers Federation, for drafts and other papers relating to The Miraculous union, Ship to shore and articles published in Maritime worker. Due to Lockwood's habit of filing a range of records together, material relevant to this series can be found throughout the collection and unrelated papers are also present in this series.
