From the Australian Dictionary of Biography entry: 'Ronald Gerald (Ron) Kern (1922-1976), builder and real estate developer, was born on 27 December 1922 at Subiaco, Perth... Kern Bros Ltd (with almost one hundred employees) was floated on the Brisbane stock exchange in June 1956; Ron was its chairman and managing director. Kern's caution and far-sightedness in diversifying ensured consistent profitability and created one of Queensland's major construction enterprises. Eventually fourteen subsidiary companies were involved in building houses, quarrying stone, preparing ready-mixed concrete and developing land in Brisbane, Townsville, Gladstone, Ipswich and Rockhampton. .. In 1988 he was honoured as an 'Unsung Hero' by the Australian Stockman's Hall of Fame and Outback Heritage Centre, Longreach.'
