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. ...

Alas, for the Pelicans!

Flinders, Baudin and beyond

Anne Chittleborough, Gillian Dooley, Brenda Glover

In 1802 a Frenchman and an Englishman famously encountered each other off the southern shores of 'Terra Australis'. The voyages of discovery of Nicolas Baudin and Matthew Flinders opened the way for the increasingly rapid invasion and colonisation of the Australian continent. This collection of essays, images and poems examines some of the cultural contexts of their voyages and the ramifications of their discoveries over the ensuing years. Flinders himself poignantly noted that the arrival of Europeans in the waters surrounding Kangaroo Island also heralded the passing of what he romantically termed the golden age of the pelicans. ...
