Quick Overview

A new biography by Tony Evans

O'Connor's life was both a triumph and a tragedy. He pulled himself up from disadvantaged beginnings in a famine torn Ireland to become a master of his profession, inspired and inspiring to others. By his own energy, probity, vision and application, it could be written of him at his death that no engineer had done more than he for the colony.

The fame of his great works, particularly the Goldfields pipeline scheme which brought water 560 Km to the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia, had almost been matched by that of his enigmatic death.
