On Thursday, October 30, the CSU Regional Archives will be hosting free presentations by State Records NSW staff and our Summer Research Scholars. We will commence at 12 noon with a sandwich lunch in the Archives foyer [*see below].

Staff from State Records NSW will be talking about the Carrington Albums, a series of 13 albums containing illuminated addresses given to Lord Carrington, Governor of NSW from 1885 to 1890.  They will also be bringing with them one of the albums containing addresses originating in our local area. For more information on the Carrington albums, please have a look at the State Records NSW’s Digital Gallery.

Following the presentation by State Records NSW, the CSU Regional Archives Summer Research Scholars from 2013-2014 will be presenting their reports:

  •  Mary Gilmore: harmony in contradiction and the preservation of Australian history, by Hannah Hogg.
  • Strange Culture: The Country Labor Party in the Riverina, by Liam Lander.

We hope you can join us on the day.

For catering purposes, please RSVP to 02 6933 4590 or email wdoubleday@csu.edu.au by 5pm on Monday, October 27.

*UPDATE:

Due to an planned power outage on Thursday, we’ve had to change the venue for this event.  The lunch and presentations will now be held in James Hagan Court on the main University Campus.  If you’ve sent your RSVP to Wayne, you should have received an email with maps and directions.
