Provenance

The papers of Pauline Armstrong were purchased by the Library from her husband, Bruce Armstrong, in 2004.

A biography file on Pauline Armstrong is available in the Newspaper and Microform Reading Room.

The National Library holds copies of Armstrong's thesis on microfiche and her monograph, Frank Hardy and the making of Power Without Glory.

The Library holds the papers of Frank Hardy (MS 4887), which are partly restricted and partly closed. It also holds a small collection of the records of the South Australian Branch of the Save Our Sons movement (MS 3821), which is restricted.

Arrangement

The collection was created and maintained from its inception by Pauline Armstrong and Bruce Armstrong, who acted as his wife's secretary during her studies. Whilst some slight re-ordering of material has been imposed by the Library, wherever possible the collection has been left in its original order and the original files and file titles have been retained. Bruce Armstrong's lists and explanatory notes have been incorporated into the collection.

Biographical Note

Pauline Armstrong was born on 4 September 1928 in Camberwell, Victoria, into an immigrant Irish Catholic family. She attended St Dominic's parish school in Camberwell, winning a Diocesan scholarship. Her further education included: secretarial school from age 14; a BA at Deakin University in Literature, Philosophy and Professional Writing; a MA at Monash University in Australian Studies; and a PhD at the University of Melbourne.

Armstrong's family was politically active. In particular, her grandmother and mother protested against Billy Hughes' attempts to introduce conscription during World War I and were disenchanted Labor Party members, later joining the Communist Party. Armstrong herself was introduced to the Eureka Youth League of the Communist Party by her uncle, Paul Mortier, whose disillusionment with the Party and suicide were the focus of Frank Hardy's novel, But the dead are many (1975). Armstrong joined the Communist Party in 1947 and worked as a legal secretary from 1949 for lawyer Cedric Ralph, who represented the Communist Party at the royal commission into its activities in 1949-50. In other arenas she was active in campaigns for improved local services, and passionately involved in the Save Our Sons movement during the Vietnam War. Armstrong's son, Karl, was jailed twice during the Vietnam War for refusing to register for the draft.

Armstrong published a book based on her PhD thesis in 2000: Frank Hardy and the making of Power without Glory. She also wrote newspaper feature articles, short stories and journal contributions. She collaborated with Rebecca Maclean on Maclean's documentary Save Our Sons, which was based on Armstrong's MA thesis on the history of the Save Our Sons movement in Victoria.

Armstrong died on 21 Oct 2001, survived by husband, Bruce, and four of her six children.

Item Descriptions

Series 1. Save Our Sons: research: list and author's notes

The Save Our Sons (SOS) Movement of Victoria, along with similar organisations in New South Wales and other states, was set up by a group of concerned women in response to the introduction of the Menzies Government National Service Act in 1964, and the decision in 1965 to send troops to Vietnam. The SOS campaigns against conscription and for the rights of conscientious objectors and draft resisters contributed to the ultimately successful anti-war movement of the 1970s.

This series contains Bruce Armstrong's list of Save Our Sons research material and Pauline Armstrong's notes and notebooks relating to the preparation of the thesis. The box numbers referred to in Bruce Armstrong's 'Guide to the collection' no longer apply, as the material in the collection has been re-boxed by the Library.

Series 4. Save Our Sons: research: subject files, 1951-2003

This series consists of photocopies, newsletters, pamphlets and correspondence relating to the SOS and its activities, conscription and the Vietnam War. Whilst the original arrangement of papers inside the files and the file titles have been retained, the files themselves have been ordered alphabetically within the series by the Library.

The files entitled 'Fairlea Five' and 'Irene Miller's collection' include letters and telegrams of support from parliamentarians (eg Arthur Caldwell and Bill Hayden) and the public. The Fairlea Five were Chris Cathie, Joan Coxsedge, Irene Miller, Joanna Maclaine-Cross and Jean McLean, who defied new amendments to the Summary Offences Act by handing out anti-conscription material to young men registering for the draft. The women were gaoled for 14 days in Fairlea Women's Prison in Melbourne, an act which resulted in an upsurge of publicity and support for the movement.

Series 8. Frank Hardy: research: lists, author's notes and indexes, c.1983-2001

Frank Hardy (1917-1994) was an Australian writer who attracted public attention in 1950 with his novel, Power Without Glory, a semi-fictional and controversial account of Melbourne millionaire John Wren. Hardy was charged with libel and underwent a criminal trial that lasted for nine months, but was ultimately acquitted. Hardy was also well-known as a television personality, playwright, songwriter, journalist, lecturer, writer for television and radio and supporter of Aboriginal rights.

This series contains Bruce Armstrong's list of the Frank Hardy research papers, indexes, diaries, notes and a document explaining Armstrong's reason for her choice of topic. The box numbers referred to in the list ('The collection: alphabetical index') no longer apply, as the material in the collection has been re-boxed by the Library. The first diary contains a loose copy of a letter from Armstrong to Phillip Deery (2001) and a summary of a talk delivered by Armstrong to the Society for The Study of Labour History (2001). Some of the notebooks and loose papers listed below as 'Rough notes' were received by the Library in bundles. Most of this material is undated and has been placed in files in the order in which it was bundled. It includes articles, notes relating to literature searches and interviews (see also series 10), and some correspondence. Correspondents include Lyle Allen, Paul Adams, Bain Attwood and Grace and Len Gale. Some of this material may relate to the book, Frank Hardy and the Making of Power Without Glory, rather than to the thesis that preceded it.

Series 13. Frank Hardy: PhD thesis, 1943-1998

This series consists of drafts and bound copies of Pauline Armstrong's PhD thesis, 'A critical biography of Frank Hardy' (1997), and two files of copies of artwork (cartoons, excerpts from books etc). The drafts were received in tied bundles and numbered. This arrangement has been retained, although where bundles have been divided into parts due to size, each part has been numbered with a Roman numeral. Some of the drafts bear annotations by Chris Wallace-Crabbe.

Series 14. Frank Hardy and the Making of Power Without Glory: notes and drafts, 1994-2000

This series contains: a re-worked copy of Armstrong's PhD thesis, 'A critical biography of Frank Hardy', used in the conversion of the thesis to the manuscript of the book, Frank Hardy and the Making of Power Without Glory; rough notes; sundry material; and the final manuscript of the book. The 'Rough notes and drafts - work in progress' material was originally received by the Library in one bundle but has been separated into parts (numbered with Roman numerals) and placed in files due to its size. The contents of the files include index compilation notes, indexes and the address which Armstrong delivered at the launch of the book. Some other handwritten notes relating to the book may also be found in series 8. The 'Sundry material' includes a list of photo captions, editor's notes and a draft bibliography.
