As part of our project we have embarked on an oral history project.
A number of interviews of significant figures in the period we are looking at have been collected and will in time be edited and deposited with the Australian National Museum of Education. These interviews have informed the perspectives and interpretations offered to date in this project. Other names have cropped up and where possible more interviews are planned.
However, these are typically the recollections of officials and Academics. We’d also love to collect the recollections of others who lived through the period. Accordingly we invite you to submit your stories via the comment function below on this page.
