We enjoy assisting researchers at the ACT Heritage Library, but it’s even more special when the donor of a collection comes into use it.
We greatly enjoyed having Graham Scully with us this week.
Graham has been active in the Kosciusko Huts Association since 1988. In 2011 he deposited his research on sites of European occupation in the Namadgi National Park ( HMSS 257 Namadgi Sites Research Files ).
It was impossible to resist taking his photo with one of him on display in the ACT Heritage Library.
The black and white image is of Graham as President of the Kosciusko Huts Association in Rowleys Rendezvous Creek Hut in the Orroral Vally, Namadgi National Park, in the 1990s, soon after the restoration of the hut. Rowleys Hut was destroyed in the bushfires of January 2003.
The photo is one of a number of images by photographer Reg Alder of the Namadgi National Park on display. The photographs were donated to the ACT Heritage Library by the National Parks Association in 2008 ( HMSS 400 Reg Alder Photographs ).
