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 Emeritus Professor Bob Reece.

Fremantle Studies is the FHS biennial journal. Papers from the first two volumes are available online. I hope more will follow asap. 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 a partial index.

Fremantle History Centre in the Fremantle Library, in the Town Hall Centre is the best physical point of contact for anything to do with the Society. There are some back numbers of the journal for sale.

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 is available for sale in the Fremantle Library in the Local History section.
