Gawler: An Annotated Bibliography of Historical, Technical and Scientific Sources in Seven Volumes
|Type of thing||Government|
|Date made or found||1997
The Gawler Bibliography was compiled by Phillip V. Thomas MA in 1997. It was an initiative of the Gawler Environment and Heritage Association and the Town of Gawler and was prepared as part of a local commitment towards encouraging the growth of information and knowledge concerning Gawler and its region. One of the objectives of the project was to identify and ‘record the contents and location of all technical, scientific and historical primary or secondary material that deals with the Gawler region’. The Bibliography does not claim to be the ‘definitive’ listing of source material about Gawler.
Include in the Bibliography are details of letters, newspaper articles, diary entries, books, book extracts, photographs, paintings, journal articles, government reports, students’ projects and theses and pamphlets dealing with most aspects of Gawler’s history including aboriginal life, colonial and post-Federation industry, education, entertainment and descriptions of settled life within and outside the town.
The material is located in a number of institutions: Gawler Public Library, University of South Australia, University of Adelaide, Roseworthy Agricultural College, Flinders University, State Library of South Australia and the State Records Office.
