Andrew Inglis Clark
Andrew Inglis Clark was born in Hobart, Tasmania on February 24, 1848, 5 years before the end of convict transportation to Tasmania. He became a mechanical engineer, then later studied law, being admitted to the Tasmanian Bar in January 1877.
In 1878 he was elected to the Tasmanian House of Assembly, becoming Attorney General in 1887. It was after a visit to the United States in 1890 that Andrew Inglis Clark became a committed 'republican' which subsequently led to his passionate involvement in the Federation of Australia.
