English: Honourable Arthur George Clarence Hawthorn, Home Secretary, 1907.

Arthur George Clarence Hawthorn, solicitor and politician, was born on 31 October 1859 in Hobart, Tasmania. He was educated at the Hobart High School and later articled to three different legal firms. Admitted as a solicitor in 1884 he immediately moved to Queensland as a partner in Macdonald-Patterson, Fitzgerald & Hawthorn, later Hawthorn & Byram (1900), Hawthorn & Lightoller (1906) and A. G. C. Hawthorn & Co. (1931). He was elected to the Ithaca Shire Council in 1899 and was president in 1901. From 1901 to 1904 he was on the executive of the Local Authorities' Association of Queensland.

In 1902 Hawthorn won the Legislative Assembly seat of Enoggera as an independent ministerialist. He joined the Morgan Liberal group in 1903 and helped bring down the conservative Philp government. A popular local member Hawthorn was unopposed in 1904. He believed in progressive reforms such as the vote for women and legislation against sweated labour. Although often asserting his independence Hawthorn was by 1907 in basic agreement with William Kidston and supported his stand against Labor organization. He became Kidston's home secretary from 3 July to 19 November 1907 and again from 18 February 1908. From 29 October 1908 to 7 February 1911 he was Kidstons's treasurer.
