Cranlana, that magnificent property in the heart of Toorak, was not only home to Sidney and Merlyn Myer, who bought it in 1920, but an institution in its own right.
My talk will trace Cranlana's enduring history, the development of its house and garden, and its place in the lives and times of one of Melbourne's most illustrious philanthropic families.
MICHAEL SHMITH is a Melbourne author and editor who spent many years as a writer and commentator for The Age. His books have included not only Cranlana: the First 100 Years, but also the recently-published biography of Dame Merlyn Myer. He is contemplating an autobiography.
