Newspaper clippings

A hidden treasure within the John Oxley Library's collections is the newspaper clippings collection. John Oxley Library staff clipped thousands of articles of historical or cultural interest from Queensland regional and Brisbane newspapers from the 1970's through to 2003.

The clippings are divided into four categories:

  • Biographical
  • Ships
  • Place
  • Miscellaneous
  • Murder in Queensland
  • Whiskey Au-Go-Go fire of 1973
  • Soldier Settlement
  • Native Orchid Society of Queensland
  • Twins
  • Airlines
  • Vegemite
  • Fine Cotton (the racehorse).
