Notable Aeolian-Australians

“The interesting thing is that these people came from seven small islands to become the leaders in politics, in the church, in commerce, in the community.
They produced probably from these smallest islands more men and women of distinction than anywhere else.”

Al Grassby (Minister for Immigration, Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs) 1975
