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.
