No Australian adorned the professions of politics and journalism like Evan Williams.  He was much more than a beautiful writer.  He was a beautiful man, who brought a shining light and grace to thousands of lives. He died a few days ago.

Our friendship goes back absolutely unbroken since we met as cadets in Melbourne in 1955.  Our careers ran strongly parallel ever since.  It was more than a friendship.  It was a partnership.

Gough Whitlam and Neville Wran taught us the nobility of politics and Evan worked with that ideal to make it a reality in lives far beyond his loving family and friends.
