      Peter Ffrench Loughlin (1882-1960), politician and grazier, was born on 12 December 1882 at Mongarlowe, near Braidwood, New South Wales, son of John Loughlin, policeman, of Ireland, and his wife Sarah Jane, née Ffrench, of New South Wales. He was educated at Ginninderra Public School and in 1896-97 at St Patrick's College, Goulburn; he then worked in a store at Goulburn. In 1900 he became a teacher in the Department of Public Instruction, being sent next year to Erambie Aboriginal School at Cowra, where at St Raphael's Catholic Church on 16 April 1906 he married Louisa Davis. He taught at several country schools including Darby's Falls, Neila Creek and Blowering.

      Loughlin's interest in public affairs and debating skills, honed in several societies, made him a valuable member of the Labor Party. He opposed conscription in World War I and defeated ex-Laborite G. A. Burgess for the State seat of Burrangong in 1917. . . .

      [A]fter he had won a Cootamundra seat in 1920?after some conflict with J. J. G. McGirr?he became minister for lands and forests in J. Storey's government, retaining the portfolios in James Dooley's 1921-22 cabinets. An active and perceptive minister, he finally abolished the role of land agents who had long imposed on credulous land-seekers; he tightened the administration of the ailing soldier settlement scheme, but lacked time to realize his vision of closer settlement. Labor lost the 1922 general election; but Loughlin had developed as one of its most sagacious parliamentarians with a firmness now refining his natural courtesy and good temper.

      Labor won the 1925 election and Loughlin again became minister for lands and forests. His understanding with Lang crumbled as the premier's aggressiveness generated cabinet fissures, and his ambition and need to appease the industrialists forced him to appoint Willis to the Legislative Council and the ministry. Loughlin contributed to the government's social and industrial legislation, and as acting premier in May-June 1926 smoothed party dissension. . . .

      About 1957 Loughlin retired to Pennant Hills, Sydney. On 11 July 1960 he died in Hornsby hospital after a motor car accident. Buried in the Field of Mars cemetery, he was survived by his wife, their two sons and three of their five daughters. . . .
