The Dictionary of Australasian Biography/Franklyn, Henry Mortimer

< The Dictionary of Australasian Biography

Franklyn, Henry Mortimer, started the Victorian Review, a monthly magazine for some time published in Melbourne, and devoted to Australasian politics, commerce and pastoral pursuits. He also started and edited the Federal Australian, a weekly newspaper, published in Melbourne, and based on the idea of intercolonial unity. Both these enterprises have now, for some years, ceased publication. Mr. Franklyn has published "Australia in 1880" (issued in Melbourne), and "The Unit of Imperial Federation" in London in 1887.
