What did Edmund Barton do for Australia?

Barton did many things for Australia. For one thing, he created the Federation Arbitration Court and the High Court of Australia. He led the Australian federation to a successful conclusion. Barton in 1879 entered the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, where he served as speaker (1883-87); he was attorney general in 1889 and 1891-93. In 1891 he assumed leadership of the federation movement and, in the federal convention of that year, helped shape the draft that became the foundation for the eventual commonwealth constitution. The constitution bill passed the New South Wales assembly in 1893, and for the next four years Barton campaigned vigorously for its approval by the public. He led the federal convention of 1897-98 that drafted the final commonwealth constitution bill. Barton went to England in 1900 to guide the new constitution through Parliament, and he returned to Australia to become prime minister later that year. (He was knighted in 1902.) Never thoroughly at home in the partisan atmosphere of the new Australian Parliament, he resigned his ministry in 1903 and became a senior judge on the High Court of Australia, serving until 1920.
