BARRY TOWN........


 Allow me to introduce to you Sir Redmond Barry, KCMG, Kt., QC, Judge of the Supreme Court of Victoria from 1852 - 1880 (the year of his death); famous for sentencing Ned Kelly to be hanged.

Barry laid the foundation for the establishment of the Supreme Court Library and founded the Melbourne Library where his dapper image, cast in bronze, stares ever-so-haughtily across Swanson Street.

He is also my subject to the main image on these pages - ever watchful over the library.

This image was chosen to adorn the dust jacket to a hardback tome entitled 'The Library of the Supreme Court of Victoria'  authored by Dr Sue Reynolds, Senior Lecturer at RMIT in Melbourne and the book will be launched next week at an informal gathering hosted by the Chief Justice of Victoria, The Hon. Marilyn Warren.

No pun intended, but I am deeply honoured. And deeply excited and deeply happy!
