Description :
Paul McGuire was born in Peterborough in 1903. On his return to Adelaide from London in 1933, McGuire and his wife (the novelist and journalist Margaret Cheadle) became involved in the formation of the Catholic Guild for Social Studies. The aim of the Guild was to encourage understanding of Catholic truths and principles, particularly in regard to the social teaching of the church. He was also a founder of the Christian Life Movement in Chicago. During the Second World War McGuire served with the Royal Australian Navy and the Allied Intelligence Bureau. Later he became advisor to the Commonwealth Prime Ministers' Conference - London, and Australian Ambassador to Italy, as well as a noted naval historian. He was an internationally recognised writer and speaker, lecturing on international politics and Catholic social teaching. He died in 1978. McGuire's collection of books relating to maritime topics was given to the State Library by his widow as the nucleus of the Paul McGuire Maritime Collection.
