Creighton Burns, a veteran journalist once said, possessed the qualities of a natural reporter: curiosity, courage and an ability to get along with others. Another contemporary described him as a 'class act' in the rough and tumble world of newspapers. 

Burns was known as a courageous editor of the Age in the 1980s, but he also pursued careers as an academic and a foreign correspondent and in each he distinguished himself. He wrote two notable books on political topics and was the 1949 Rhodes Scholar for Victoria. 

In this fine biography, John Tidey describes the life of an engaging and accomplished man who joined the navy in 1942 as a 17 year old and finished his working life more than 50 years later as a university chancellor.
