Quadrant is an Australian literary and cultural journal publishing poetry and short stories and essays on politics, history, universities and the arts. The journal was founded in 1956 by Richard Krygier, a Polish-Jewish refugee who had been a social- democratic activist in Europe and by James McCauley, a Catholic poet. The publication was a project of the Australian Committee for Cultural Freedom, the Australian branch of the Congress for Cultural Freedom, an anti-Communist advocacy group funded by the CIA.

Among the contents of this first issue of Quadrant are the articles "James Cook, Seaman" by Alan Villiers, "Walter de la Mare" by Rosemary Dobson, "Good Manners in Street Architecture" by George Molnar and "The Communist Conspiracy in Asia" by Denis Warner.
