John Oxley Library Fellowship
The John Oxley Library Fellowship is awarded annually to support a research project that uses the rich resources of SLQ’s John Oxley Library and contributes to the creation of new knowledge of Queensland.
The recipient will receive a prize of $20,000 along with a personal work space within the John Oxley Library to utilise the extensive collections and material of the Library in the completion of an individual research project on their proposed topic of interest.
Applications for the 2013 John Oxley Library Fellowship are now closed.
Supported by the Queensland Library Foundation.
2012 John Oxley Library Fellow
Don Watson was the 2012 John Oxley Library Fellowship recipient.
His Fellowship research project aims to make a valuable contribution to local architectural history by extending his previously published research Queensland Architects of the 19th Century: A Biographical Dictionary into the 20th century.
Don Watson’s research will not only chronicle the lives and work of Queensland architects, it will record pioneering Queensland life and how our architects have adapted their skills to design buildings appropriate to the climate, new technologies and times of economic hardship.
Don spoke at SLQ on 7 February 2013 on the changing face of the architectural profession in Queensland from 1900-1950. Don's talk drew on knowledge gained through his Fellowship research.
