"Paul McGuire (1903-1978) was an Australian author and diplomat. He wrote extensively about Australian history and culture, and his work was recognized for its insightful analysis and engaging style. Born in Adelaide, South Australia, McGuire began his career as a journalist. He worked for several newspapers in Australia and the United Kingdom, and he also served as a war correspondent during World War II. In addition to his journalism career, McGuire wrote a number of books. His works include "Australian Journey" (1943), a travelogue of his journey across Australia, and "The Secret Discovery of Australia" (1974), in which he explores the theory that Portuguese explorers discovered Australia before the Dutch. McGuire also had a distinguished career in public service. He served as the Australian High Commissioner to Canada from 1949 to 1952, and he was the Australian Ambassador to Italy from 1952 to 1955."
