The Bob Hawke Collection

The Bob Hawke Collection held in the Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Library commemorates the achievements and legacy of Bob Hawke (1929-2019), Australia's longest serving Labor Prime Minister.

The Collection documents Mr Hawke's career, from ACTU Research Officer and ACTU President to his election as the Member for Wills, and his career and business interests following his resignation from Parliament. Some personal papers are also included.

While the Collection does include some materials that date from Mr Hawke’s terms as Prime Minister of Australia, most records relating to that period of his career can be found at the National Archives of Australia.

The Collection includes correspondence, papers, speeches, photographs, campaign material, books, audio-visual materials, gifts and memorabilia.
