Sir Henry Lionel Galway (1859-1949) was the Governor of South Australia from 1914 until 1920. Described as a controversial figure, Governor Galway advocated for conscription, supported gambling and wanted to end the White Australia policy in order to bring in much needed labour from Asia into the Northern Territory. Australia’s strides towards equality failed to align with Galway’s conservative outlook, seeing him oppose the South Australia’s education system and women’s enfranchisement. As a sign of protest against his conservative views, the Labor parliamentarians decided to boycott Galway’s farewell. Although Governor Galway was socially conservative, his wife, Lady Marie Carola Franciska Roselyn Galway, was tireless in her fundraising and social efforts throughout the First World War. Nonetheless, Sir Henry Galway is still a revered Governor, and praised for his involvement during wartime.
