Early record books now online
Early records of the Society and its predecessor the Queensland Philosophical Society are now available through the State Library of Queensland’s finding aid One Search.
- Minute books from 1883 to the 1940s are available in nine files.
Four more files include:
- Members’ register from 1859 Member No. 1
- Library Borrowing Book 1870-1930
- Secretary’s notebook
- Minute book 1868 – 1883 etc.
This is a landmark step in protecting the Society’s heritage. The fragile works were taken from their secure repository in the Museum to conservation scanning in the State Library.
A table of links to National Library of Australia’s archive of some newspapers mentioned in the minutes is also available.
