On the Shoulders of Giants
“On the Shoulders of Giants: Creation of Learned Societies in Colonial NSW” will survey the history of the two oldest institutions in NSW dedicated to education, the discussion of ideas and discovery, the Royal Society of New South Wales and the Sydney Mechanics’ School of Arts.
