  • Volume 13 Issue 4 - Pioneers memorial service 2010: The Leake family
           citation
    • Abstract: Love, Margaret
      The name Leake is indelibly written on the pages of West Australian History. It is the name of one of the first - and most influential - of the pioneering families that settled here in 1829. From the very beginning and throughout the nineteenth century the first three generations of the Leake Family contributed considerably to the establishment and development of the social, economic, commercial, legal and political institutions of the new colony. Many members of those three early generations lie buried here, in this Pioneer Cemetery. Today we pay tribute to them.

      Data from archaeological excavations and primary historical records such as maps and letters are reanalysed to determine the true location of the 1829-1830 Peel Association camp known as 'Clarence Town'. The discovery of the remains of a camp indicates that 'Clarence' was not located at Woodman Point, as traditionally believed, but further south near Mount Brown.

  • Volume 13 Issue 1 - Ports of Asia and the Pacific: The Place of Fremantle
           as Seaport City
    • Abstract: Hocking, Ian
      This paper provides a broad overview of the maritime activity in the Asia and Pacific regions, from 1000AD until the early 20th century. It illustrates significant places and typologies of maritime settlements and ports at key periods in the development of the regions. The port settlement of Fremantle is examined in the context of British commercial and migration activity during the mid 19th century, completing the British hegemony of the Indian Ocean. An audit of World Heritage listings demonstrates the lack of listings relating to these activities in the Asia and Pacific regions. The paper concludes with recommendations concerning these activities for heritage agencies in Australasia and internationally.

  • Volume 13 Issue 1 - Chasing Leather and Choosing a Code: How Western
           Australia Opted for Australian Rules Football
    • Abstract: Errington, Steve
      The introduction of Australian Rules football in Western Australia can be traced to the formation the Swan Football Club in 1883. The Victorian game took root in Western Australia at a time when the code was on the verge of big changes. Early in 1885 a clear choice was made and Western Australia switched from rugby to Victorian Rules. A ready explanation lies with the young men who began arriving from the east late in 1884, and who couldn't believe that Victorian Rules was not played. Surprisingly, they were not from Victoria but from South Australia where a gathering economic depression had driven them out in search of work.

      This paper examines the operation and organisation of the Western Australian office of the agency responsible for internal security in the interwar period from 1919 to 1939: the Commonwealth Investigation Branch. It seeks to explore the extent to which the activities of this agency reflected the political concerns of the federal Government and if the Investigation Branch perceived Western Australia to be as 'quiescent' as has been suggested for this period by previous historians. The study also aims to identify the targets of investigation by the Investigation Branch in Western Australia, and test the claim that these were primarily radicals of the political left.

  • Volume 12 Issue 6 - The Botanic Gardens of Western Austrlia
    • Abstract: Summers, Lise
      The Kings Park and Botanic Garden was given its new designation in 1965 in order to reflect the prestige of being the first botanic garden in Western Australia to have gained international recognition as such. Botanical interests were uppermost in the establishment of the Swan River Colony in 1829, which was as an agricultural settlement first and foremost. '[T]he production of Flax, Tobacco, Cotton, Oil, Wine and similar articles', said Stirling, the colony's founder and first Governor, ' must be the sources for our future welfare ' This paper examines what attempts were made to establish a botanic garden in Western Australia prior to 1965, and discusses both the reasons why these attempts failed, and whether or not such attempts nevertheless deserve to be called botanic gardens. This will be done in the context of current understandings of what constitutes a botanic garden, and will offer an historical assessment of how the nature of what constitutes a botanic garden has changed over time.

Since then, the islands of Western Australia demonstrate change from a long period (7,000-15,000 years) either without or with minimal anthropogenic use to a relatively brief period (the last 300-400 years) in which many human usages have been experienced.
