Vale James Fairfax AC

On behalf of the Australia Council, I would like to acknowledge the life of James Fairfax AC.  To those who knew him and for the organisations that were touched by his generosity and thoughtful stewardship, James was an advocate, an unflinching supporter, a confidant and a true friend.  His quiet, imaginative and strategic philanthropy was always made in full heart, and it will endure.  The arts in Australia in so many different forms, have benefitted enormously from his connoisseurship, discernment and taste and his great capacity to share these for the greater public good.  He will be greatly missed.
