The complexity that was master cartographer, Matthew Flinders, was brought flagrantly to life on Sunday afternoon at the National Maritime Museum, when Robert Clancy (professor, physician, and map tragic), Paul Brunton (Curator at Mitchell Library, bon vivant and generally good bloke), and Miriam Estersen (biographer) were let loose with the bones.
Hard to convey what FUN this seminar was. The packed theatre resounded with gales of laughter. This museum and its event calendar has a special place in my heart.
To my immense delight, I met Judy who has about 90 letters from her aunt who nursed in India during WW1 and is interested in transcribing and preserving them. Right up my alley way!
