Kirkland proved to be one of the Northern Territory’s most enduring and successful pioneers and was one of the best-known individuals in the Palmerston/Darwin of his day. He had a long career as editor of the Northern Territory Times and Gazette, but during his half century in the Territory capital he was also active in its social, civic and political life.
