About meBorn at Peterborough, South Australia, 28 January, 1932, educated at Thebarton Primary school and Adelaide High school. Entered University of South Australia (then S.A.I.T.) at age 30 and completed a degree course in Accountancy and a degree in Library Studies (Bachelor of Arts)and followed with a Graduate Diploma in Religion. I have written a number of books, notably the history of Thebarton Primary school, and "A Matter of Independence," which is a history of the S.A. Auditor-General's Office. Other works concern Barbara Hanrahan, novelist and artist, Sir Josiah Symon, Lawyer, M.P., philanthropist and book collector, and a small monograph, "Thebarton Cottage," about the home of Colonel William Light, surveyor of Adelaide. I have made my library available for public use under the name Wilmar Library, and through this help users in their research. The library also publishes books, generally in small editions. The book "Histoire de deux enfants aborigènes" has never been deposited for copyright.
About my libraryThe Wilmar Library was opened on 18 September, 1984, by Prof. Tony Foskett. It is my personal collection, but members of the public can have access by appointment and assistance free of charge. There are about 14,000 volumes, and serials, and postcards, and other eccentricities in the collection. Subject matter is varied, some of the more important areas of interest being literature (all nations), religion, sex, erotica, Australian history, local history (South Australia), art, library science (bibliography), etc. A few pre-1801 titles are held in the library.
