Who was William Hutchinson?

William Joseph Hutchinson was an Australian politician. Born in Maindample, Victoria, he was educated at Scotch College in Melbourne before becoming a grazier at Bonnie Doon. In 1931, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the United Australia Party member for Indi; together with Labor member for Oxley Francis Baker, he was the first member of the House born after Federation. Hutchinson held Indi until 1937, when he successfully contested the new seat of Deakin instead. In 1944, the United Australia Party became the Liberal Party of Australia, which Hutchinson duly joined. He held Deakin until 1949, when he retired to become a grazier. He died in 1967.
