Sir Robert Menzies
- Birth of first son, Kenneth Leckie Menzies.
- Builds law practice:
"In the 1920s - over his principal years as an advocate - Menzies worked, as Dame Pattie remembers it, 'fantastically hard'. He estimated that at this time his weekly hours of work would average not less than eighty. The Melbourne courts sat from 10.30am to one o'clock and from 2.15 to 4.15 in the afternoon. Menzies' habit was to work at his desk long into the night and to get up as late as court or conference obligations permitted. In the first years of marriage this work routine and the demands on Pat of home and children meant that they lived what she calls a 'very quiet life'. Almost always, however, Menzies took Sunday off, to rest and spend time with his family. Though they sometimes went to church they took no part in wider church activities and Sunday was a day for reading, and occasional picnics and outings."
