Walde Gerard Fisher degree certificate and dance cards

  • F3836
  • File
  • 1913-1926

Original University of Queensland degree certificate awarded to Walde Gerard Fisher for a Bachelor of Arts with first class honours in the School of Classics, 10 May 1916. Fisher's name has been amended: the end of his first name, 'mar', has been scratched off, the 'h' in his middle name has been blacked out, and the 'c' has been covered in his surname.

Ten original dance program cards relating to dances Walde Fisher attended. Most include handwritten recordings of dance partners by Walde Fisher, and some have coloured pencils attached with coloured cotton yarn. The dance cards are all small booklets made of lightweight card with the schedule of dances printed on inside the booklet on the left-hand side. On the right-hand side of the booklet there is a space to write, with the pencil provided, the name of dance partner for each dance. Occassionally the dance cards are a double-sided card rather than a booklet. There are three spare pencils with yarn, two cards with no pencil attached and one incomplete card. The dance card details are: 18 Jun 1913, UQSU (University of Queensland Student Union). -- 26 Jun 1913, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 5 Jul 1913, University Hall (organised by Faculty of Arts). -- 16 May 1914, University Hall (organised by Faculties of Science and Engineering). -- 10 Jun 1914, UQSU. -- 25 Jun 1914, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 25 Jun 1914, St John’s College, Brisbane. -- 3 Jul 1914, St Mary’s Hall, Women’s College. -- 17 Oct 1914, Juvenile Ball in aid of Red Cross Fund by Miss St. Ledger’s pupils, Centennial Hall. -- Undated, Unknown.

Recollections of Thomas Davis : collected by Steele Rudd

  • F3517
  • Item
  • 2010

This transcription of the original item was compiled and annotated by Richard Fotheringham. There is a note in the top right-hand corner 'In the posession [sic] of Hon. Joshua Thomas Bell circ. 1908-9'. Footnote on first page: 'Two manuscript notes in different hands are written in the right margin at this point ... indicates that this was compiled c. 1902 (Thomas died Jan 1904).' These recollections were shared with his son, Arthur Hoey Davis (1868-1935) (whose pen name was Steele Rudd) mostly likely in the early 1900's. Thomas Davis was a former convict. His memoir covers the period from 1849 to the separation of Queensland from New South Wales in 1859. Davis initially worked with J. C. Burnett's Survey Party. He recounts stories of the places he visited and their history, various encounters with local indigenous groups and individuals, language and culture of the Aboriginal people of the area, kinship system in the Maronoa and Balonne region, and a list of more than 100 names and phrases in the dialect of the people of the Balonne, Dawson and Comet river. Joshua Peter Bell is mentioned several times in memoir. This and other recollections by Thomas Davis were collected by Joshua Thomas Bell in the first decade of the 20th century.
