Series II. Diaries of E.T. Crutchley, 1928 - 1940

The diaries provide a detailed record of Crutchley's working and social life, his conversations with many of the leading figures in Australian and British political and official circles, his opinions and attitudes, and anecdotes that he had heard. The entries in the early diaries tend to be briefer than those in the later diaries. For some days there are no entries and there are a few longer gaps, the largest being from July 1939 to August 1940...
