Sir James Daniel ConnellyPrint Page Print this page

A window in the chapel commemorates politician Sir James Daniel Connelly (1869-1962).

In 1901 he entered the Legislative Council as a member for North East Province and, having shown himself a courteous and able debater in the ensuing years of political instability, was chosen colonial secretary and minister for commerce and labour when (Sir) Newton Moore formed his Liberal ministry in May 1906. He remained colonial secretary under the more congenial leadership of Frank Wilson until the Liberal débâcle of October 1911. 

He donated generously to the University of Western Australia's St Thomas More College, where a fine window in the chapel commemorates him.
