The inaugural Multicultural Documentary Heritage Workshop held by the National Library of Australia in June brought together 45 representatives of culturally diverse community organisations from all over Australia. As part of the program, participants visited the Archives to learn how to set up and manage an archive and access family migration records. Tracey Nikolaou (right), great-niece of government architect John Smith Murdoch, and her mother Barbara Murdoch. Among other famous 1920s Canberra government buildings such as old Parliament House, John Murdoch designed East Block, now the home of the National Archives. Barbara and Tracey visited us recently to donate precious documents and photographs from the architect's personal collection. Professor Geoffrey Bolton, our 2004 Frederick Watson Fellow, is researching Paul Hasluck and his influence on indigenous affairs and foreign policy. Before becoming Governor-General in 1969, Hasluck served as Minister for Territories, Defence and External Affairs under various governments during the 1950s and 1960s. The fellowship, offered each year to encourage scholars to use our collection, will enable Professor Bolton to complete a book on his research topic. As part of the fellowship, Professor Bolton presented a seminar to staff and will deliver a public lecture later this year.
