Swimming Queensland, founded in 1898, is the peak body for the administration of swimming activities in Queensland. It conducts, encourages, promotes, advances, controls and administers swimming activities throughout the State via a number of distinct functions.
With the permission of Dr Tim Barrett OAM, Mr Barry Short has made available the following links to over 1,570 closely typed pages of research material created by Dr Barrett for the purpose of writing his one hundred year history of the Queensland Amateur Swimming Association (QASA) - established 1898 - published in 2006.
Research
This research was carried out at the Queensland Library at South Brisbane, and consists of information from newspapers, available on microfiche. This material is a really wonderful true story about swimming, from the viewpoint of Queensland and Australian newspaper reporters. It contains information over the lifespan of many swimmers and officials, many of whom are still alive, who competed in and worked for the sport of swimming.
Additional Research
As well as newspaper reports, the material contains other research material obtained by Dr Barrett: a sample of the newspapers searched by him; a record of research by Mr Peter Rigby on the Maroochydore Surf Club, about swimmers involved with the QASA early in the century; an account by Mr Jim Dunning in 1985 of his swimming memories in the beginning of the 20th century and the Commercial Club; and a scanned copy of a swimming carnival conducted by the Commercial Club in 1914.
