Veteran Sydney journalist Robin Adair has had a wide and colourful career at the Daily and Sunday Telegraphs,the Australian Financial Review and the ABC. For many years he reflected on the lighter side of life in a humorous column for the Australian Woman's Weekly. He has been a lifelong student of early colonial history, especially police, pubs, crime and punishment. One of his ancestors was an early Sydney police superintendent; he believes another was a London judge who sent many convicts to Australia.
