Pilot Officer Edward Gough Whitlam, 4 March 1943. (Whitlam Institute, Whitlam Prime Ministerial Collection item 16008)

Gough Whitlam shaped the Australian nation, before that, the Australian nation shaped him. This exhibition tells the story of the man behind the legacy – the bright Canberra schoolboy obsessed with Greek mythology, the RAAF navigator braving hazardous skies at the height of the Pacific war, and a young father starting a family on the urban fringe.
