New Discoveries, Old Traps: Researching the West Coast's Past

Lou Rae

Prominent Tasmanian historian Lou Rae will present new information on his research of West Coast history – including access to records, pitfalls in research, and new unpublished facts on the region's early mining history. The presentation will include discussion on Lou's upcoming book which will cover the area encompassed by the fomer West Coast municipalities of Queenstown, Gormanston and Strahan, from Aboriginal occupation through to 1935, by which time the Mt Lyell Company was completely dominant over all it surveyed.
