  • Volume 64 Issue 3 - From 'abundance of emues' to a rare bird in the land:
           The extinction of the Tasmanian emu
    • Abstract: Dooley, Robert
      John Gould, the famous ornithologist, arrived in Van Diemen's Land in 1838. Gould reflected on his journey and expressed his foreboding at the potential loss of the endemic emu, making the appeal, that the loss of the emu would 'be regretted by every right-minded person who claims Tasmania as his father-land'. By the time this plea was published his fears were becoming a reality - the emu was rare and potentially already extinct. The Tasmanian emu was also soon to become lost to the collective memory of most Tasmanians and as a consequence it seems little research into the Tasmanian emu from either a historical or scientific perspective has been done. However, there has been a recent resurgence of interest in the Tasmanian emu. This has been buoyed by the existence of museum specimens, evidence of Indigenous activities associated with the emu, and archival resources and early colonial reminiscences.

  • Volume 64 Issue 3 - 'Murder most foul': The death of an overseer at Point
           Puer
    • Abstract: Rosen, Bruce
      In July 1843, two young prisoners from the boys' establishment at Point Puer were brought before the Supreme Court in Hobart, charged with the murder of an overseer at the prison. The boys were hardly angels and despite their relative youth could not have hoped for much sympathy from the court. The jury, having been carefully instructed by the chief justice, reached what must have been for many observers a rather startling decision: the boys were acquitted. However, the question remains, though the law was upheld, was justice done'

  • Volume 64 Issue 3 - 'This famous eyesore': Rats' Castle in Hobart, lost
           reality and enduring image
    • Abstract: Ratcliff, Eric
      According to the Art Galley of New South Wales, Blamire Young's 'Rat's Castle, Hobart' is 'one of the best known watercolours in the Gallery's collection'. It is unsigned and undated, but this undoubted masterpiece is thought to have been painted in about 1919; it was first exhibited in London in 1920, and then by the Fine Art Society in Melbourne in 1923 under the title of 'Rat's Castle Hobart' (now demolished). The Art Gallery of New South Wales acquired it in that year. Although as a watercolour in this present era of careful conservation it is not regularly on show, it has appeared in an unusual number of representative exhibitions and has frequently been illustrated and reproduced.

  • Volume 64 Issue 3 - Indentured children from the Queen's Asylum
    • Abstract: Frost, Lucy
      The annual prize-giving ceremonies at the Queen's Asylum were special occasions of public display. Boys, girls, and infants sat in their divisions, scrubbed and neatly dressed amidst flowers and flags in the large classroom of the Infant School. After the local dignitaries were seated and the vice-regal party had entered, reports were read about the children's progress - or lack thereof - in secular and religious studies, and the prizes distributed. At the ceremony in December 1872, Dr John Coverdale as superintendent offered 'a few statistics in support of the operations of this charity'.
