"Sir Thomas Playford was Premier of South Australia for 26 years and 226 days between 1938 and 1965. He led his Party to victory at eight successive elections and eclipsed all records for long political leadership in the history of the British Commonwealth. South Australia's population almost doubled under his Premiership. He presided over a period of unprecedented economic growth and prosperity which he master-minded and directed with a personal authority and flair unmatched in the previous history of his State."
