Doug Burton

Douglas Joseph Burton MBE – what an extraordinary man, what an extraordinary life.

Doug Burton

Footballer, cricketer, baseballer, pilot, father, father-figure, grandfather, photographer extraordinaire and master planner.It won’t come as a surprise to anyone that Doug actually wanted to be a sports journalist and so it’s completely predictable that he created Australia’s first super group of what today we’d call photo journalists.

The main supporting video was written by Richard Ashton with an introduction by Gordon McColl.
The Atom Bomb expedition photo album was found in the JWC Archive at the State Library with many additional photos kindly provided by the family.
