The histories of West Lakes

Susan Marsden

West Lakes in South Australia was created in the 1970s, transforming what many considered a wasteland of swamp and sand into well-groomed waterways and suburbs.

Adelaide's Dissenting Headmaster

John Lorenzo Young and his premier private school

Diana Chessell

The discovery of schoolboy signatures - hidden under peeling wallpaper in an old Adelaide schoolhouse for 130 years - has led to this documentary history of John Lorenzo Young's school and its 1600 students, among them the leading lights of the colony and many still prominent in South Australian business and academic life today. John Lorenzo Young, the dissenting headmaster, was a brilliant and creative teacher, a graduate in the 'sciences of the enlightenment' from King's College London. He taught these new sciences to the sons of Adelaide's dissenting majority from 1852-1880, just 16 years after settlement. ...
