This meeting will feature highlights from two ACT Heritage Grant projects. The first involves digitising and placing on the CDHS website about 2,000 additional protogrphs from our extensive collection. The second involved digitising cassette tape recordings of some of the more significant talks by notable speakers delivered at regular CDHS member meetings.
The Canberra Day Oration celebrates the naming of Canberra on 12 March 1913. The Oration is delivered each year by a prominent Canberran, usually at the National Library of Australia. More details later.
