Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Sir George Fairbairn (23 March 1855 - 23 October 1943) was a pastoralist and Australian politician. Fairbairn was born in Geelong, Victoria and educated at Geelong Grammar School and Jesus College, Cambridge. He rowed for Jesus College Boat Club in 1875 and 1876, the first two years of an 11-year stretch up to 1885 when it won the Cambridge head of the river races. His younger brother Steve went on to become an influential rowing coach at the club. Fairbairn returned to Australia in 1876 and in the following years managed Peak Downs and Barcaldine stations in Queensland.show more
