Summary Ted Egan's career has ranged from working with remote Aboriginal communities to songwriter, historian, entertainer and the Northern Territory's top job of Administrator. Born in 1932, Ted planned to travel to Brazil after high school but he never got further than Darwin, instead joining the public service and local sports teams. Working mainly in remote areas for the Department of Aboriginal Affairs, he became a patrol officer, reserve superintendent, teacher and district officer. He resigned to start the Ted Egan Show in Alice Springs which went for over 25 years. An author and songwriter, his songs reflect his love of the distinctive Northern Territory humour and characters
