Johanna Parker, senior curator of the Canberra museum’s exhibition – Australian Democracy: More than 2,000 years in the Making – said: “Thomas Muir’s story was vital for the exhibition because it linked Australia to the international political landscape at a time of incredible social change.

“Through Thomas Muir I have been able to take visitors back in time to an era when the simple reading of a book could challenge the foundations of authority.

“His story was included in this exhibition for many reasons, especially because such a significant figure was beginning to be forgotten by the country that helped shape his political convictions.

“My hope is his personal courage and passion for social justice will inspire visitors and this Scottish hero will be admired by a new audience on the other side of the world.

 

“I could not have hoped for a better character to enable me to tell the story of the development of democratic ideals in Australia.”
