Fremantle History Society

AGM 1730 Tuesday 26 July 2022, Moodjah Room, Walyalup Koort, including the launch of Fremantle Studies vol. 11 by the mayor.

Fremantle History Society was established 12 October 1994, with Dianne Davidson (d. 13 October 2021) as president (1994-7), and has a website, a Facebook page, and these aims. The current president is Allen Graham. Here are committees present and past.

Fremantle Studies is the FHS journal, published every two years or so. I've written a simple subject index.

Fremantle Studies Day is held annually by the History Society. It produces papers that are published in the journal. The 2021 event was Sunday 1300-1700 24 October at
Woodman Point Quarantine Station, at the end of O'Kane Court, Coogee, on Woodman Point.

Newsletters are published four times a year, and are all available here. There is an incomplete index (1994-2004). Short articles are published in the newsletter. From May 2020, some longer papers are published separately on the website, as announced in the blog.

Bernadette Flynn published an article about the Society in the October number of the Newsletter of the Federation of Australian Historical Societies Inc., of which she was at the time the Outreach Officer. I asked her permission to publish it here, but she did not reply, and may have moved on. So here it is.
