Author(s): Elizabeth O'Callaghan

History | Local Author | Local Content

Warrnambool has never done justice to the women who shared with their menfolk the hardships of the pioneering days.Silent Lives fills a void in the history of Warrnambool and surrounding districts during the early decades 1840s to 1910, providing a narrative about some of the people, in particular women, missing so far in our documented history. Elizabeth O¿Callaghan has meticulously researched the period, drawing on early newspapers, diaries, letters, unpublished family histories, honour board listings as well as public documents such as hotel licensing and teacher records held in the Public Record Office of Victoria and State Library of Victoria.By their unremitting labours and self-sacrifice the pioneering women of Warrnambool and district helped to lay the foundations of our communities today.
