Stephen Montague Stout was one of the 10,000 convicts sent to WA in the 1850s. His education, personal charm and intelligence both charmed and antagonised the colonials. Starting as a teacher he became a renowned photographer, journalist, and publisher.
This is one of the most interesting colonial biographies to have been written and will create a wider audience for our almost forgotten past.
His numerous descendants contain those that have reached the pinnacles of success in Australian life.
