CHAMBERLAIN - Australian Innovator - (Book - Soft Cover) AUD $49.95

Bob Chamberlain was the consummate engineer. Never considering his lack of tertiary training to be an impediment, he was one of those "seat of the pants" engineers in whom innate ability, combined with supreme self-belief, produced some astounding results.

Over his 84 years, he energetically pursued lines of enquiry, driven by a lively mind given to lateral thinking. While he was never shy of publicity, much of his incredible output remains unknown, even though his higher-profile activities like the Chamberlain tractor project are reasonably well documented.

Suggesting the high regard in which he was held by his friends and fellows, the production of his life's story was urged by former employee John Cummins, who was anxious that details of Bob's quite remarkable contributions to the Australian components industry be remembered.

Certainly in the process of preparing this history it has become apparent that he has never been accorded due credit for many of his works, and in some instances others have claimed accolades which are rightfully his.

From surviving documents this account sets the record straight.
