Theatre company supported by the Communist Party and regarded as a 'front organisation' by ASIO
BACK TO MAIN SURVEILLANCE GALLERY
David Milliss was a Fulbright scholar and active member of New Theatre which was regarded as a communist front organisation. He was denied work at the Australia Council when it was established on ASIO recommendation. Their report indicated he should not be allowed near money or secrets; neither of which he would be near in the role in question.
The Milliss family were tracked by ASIO for more than 25 years and across two generations.
