GUEST SPEAKER: Eve Terry of NAA.
Eve Terry has worked for the National Archives of Australia for ten years, and is currently acting in the role of Assistant Manager, Public Engagement for the Queensland office. She has worked mainly in the area of collection management. An important aspect of Eve’s work with the collection included making World War I repatriation records available online, through her management of the Project Albany team in Brisbane.
The National Archives collection includes a wide range of petitions relating to a number of areas for change including land rights for First Australians, equal voting rights, the deportation of South Sea Islanders and the internment of enemy aliens. Not all petitions relate to the big issues, with some asking for change around postal services and others penned by school students about matters that affected them.
