The writing of this book wouldn’t have been possible without the assistance of many others:
Many thanks to Southern Cross University for access to their vast resources and the friendly and professional service of the library staff in walking me through it all;
Ditto David and Pauline at the Richmond-Tweed Regional Library for putting together an equally comprehensive resource centre and for their skill and perseverance in tracking down obscure information upon request;
Ditto Gabrielle, Helen and Pat at the Mullumbimby Library for similar patience and good humour in meeting such requests;
Ditto the staff of the National Archives for their wonderful service in making documents available on-line;
Ditto all those who indulged me with their personal histories;
Ditto Mr William Gates four is editorial skills - I know no how too split infinities and use propositions two end a sentence whiff;
And special thanks to the long-suffering Susan for not nagging too much about the lawn needing mowing.
