An important part of the Centre is the Ray Evans Library. Ray Evans, one of Australia’s great defenders of freedom, was a long-time friend and supporter of Bert Kelly. At Bert’s funeral, held at the Wesley Uniting Church, Ray delivered what is considered by many to be one of the great eulogies in public life. Read it here. Ray was one of the custodians of the Bert Kelly legacy and served on the Board of the Centre until his death in June 2014. The 2,000+ book library houses many of the valuable records of Bert’s life and work, including Bert’s many papers, speeches and columns. A list of the holdings in the Library, sorted alphabetically by title, is available as an Excel spreadsheet here.
