Memento : Issue 21
September 2002 Number 21 continued on p. 3 Prime Minister Joseph Lyons, Dame Enid Lyons and their 11 children at the Lodge, c. 1937. By permission of the National Library of Australia hanks to our exciting new website, Australians will have the chance to meet each of Australia's 25 Prime Ministers. The website, to be launched later this year, is a virtual encyclopaedia of information on Australia's Prime Ministers. Features include 'Meet a PM', with biographies of each Prime Minister and his wife, and research maps that show which collections hold original records on Australian Prime Ministers, both in Australia and overseas. Researchers can follow a timeline of important events during each Prime Minister's term of office, search the 'Who's Who' section to find out about important people in their life, or click on 'Fast Facts' to check a name or date. The important, but often overlooked, role that Prime Ministers' wives played in public life is also highlighted. Our Australia's Prime Ministers website brings together photographs, digitised images of original documents and a wealth of historical information drawn from our collection. The research maps lead deeper into the collections of the National Archives as well as the National Library of Australia, ScreenSound Australia, the Australian War Memorial, State Libraries, University Archives, Prime Ministerial Libraries and other smaller organisations.
