Very Public Servant/Porter, Colin/Paper/0864451679/S039-C
Colin Porter was known throughout the sporting world as an Olympic oarsman and rowing coach and the early chapters of his book cover this period of his life and his time as an environmental engineer working for the Port of London Authority where he became known as "the man who cleaned up the Thames". Later chapters deal with his time as head of the Environmental Protection Authority of WA and his run-ins with Sir Charles Court and other politicians over environmental issues. Fascinating reading.
