*PHILIP LINDSAY [19061958] Australian writer, the son of Norman Lindsay, Australian artist and illustrator, and the younger brother of writer Jack Lindsay. He was educated at the Anglican Church Grammar School in Brisbane, and emigrated to England in the 1930s. Jack Lindsay describes in some detail, his brother's arrival in England, in the first volume of his autobiography - Fanfrolico and After, 1968 - 'I had written telling Phil and Ray that we now had a big house, and inviting them over. Phil decided to come. In early September he arrived. I cannot do better than cite his account. He says that I was late to meet him at Waterloo; probably I was, though I did not know at the time I had given him such an excruciating time of waiting.' Philip describes this all in his own autobiography - I'd Live The Same Life Over, 1939. 'Fanfrolico and After' includes a photograph of brother Philip, and he is alluded to in the other two volumes of Jack's autobiography.
