Fremantle History Society

Fremantle History Society was established 12 October 1994, with Dianne Davidson as president (1994-7), and has a website, a Facebook page, and these aims. The current president is Professor Emeritus Bob Reece. Committee membership record. Download the membership form.

Fremantle Studies is the FHS biennial journal. Papers from most volumes are available online. I hope to be able to complete the set. I've written a main subject index.

Fremantle Studies Day is held annually by the History Society. It produces papers that are published in the journal. The most recent was 22 October 2017, at the Army Museum.

Newsletters are published four times a year, and are all available online. There is an index 1994-2004.

The Fremantle History Centre which was a separate part of the Fremantle Library in the Town Hall Centre, now being unnecessarily demolished, was the best physical point of contact for anything to do with the Society. There used to be some back numbers of the journal for sale there, as well as many other valuable resources - including the staff - now all gone.

The Fremantle History Society's AGM was Tuesday 25 July 2017 in the Reception Rooms of the City of Fremantle. Allen Graham joined the Committee as Vice-President, Greg Luke joined, and Steve Errington left; it remains otherwise unchanged. Fremantle Studies no. 9 was launched, and was available for sale in the Fremantle Library in the Local History section when it existed.
