Brisbane: The First 25 Years

Click the image below to read a commemorative history of Brisbane's first 25 years as a Community (1961 - 1986), after incorporating in 1961.  The writing and design of the book was overseen by a special committee appointed by the Brisbane City Council. The committee members were Fred Smith and Ray Miller of the City Council; Dolores Gomez, manager of the Brisbane Library; and Dorothy Radoff, city historian. Rosemary Cameron, the assistant to the city manager, coordinated the project on behalf of the city administration. Frank Walch supplied many of the photos used in the book. Sam Hasegawa of Oral History Associates was the writer.
