Abstract

Letters written by Frederik Rapp to Doctor Parker during 1928 regarding the history of Waterloo Point, Great Swanport and the Municipality of Glamorgan in the late 1800's. Mention is made of the old church on the school reserve, the old school, now the War Institute, the pews from the church, various residents, hotels, sailing vessels and the building of the jetty.

Dr G.Musgrave Parker (1885-1965) qualified in medicine (M.B. B.Ch.) at Cambridge, U.K.,in 1913, and in 1914 he was appointed a medical officer of health in Swansea. From 1915 until 1918 he served with the Australian forces in Egypt and France. On return he served as medical officer for the Kentish Municipality (Sheffield, Rai1ton) 1919-1921; Swansea 1921-1926 and Clarence, 1926-1947, and then joined the staff of the Repatriation Hospital, Hobart, until he retired in 1955. Most of the papers consist of notes made about historical queries, a rough draft of his book, and correspondence with East Coast residents and others requesting information. There is also a collection of newspaper cuttings and pamphlets relating to the history of Tasmania, especially the East Coast and some photographs and snapshots. Dr Parker also collected some original historical documents chiefly from East Coast families. Private Deposit P.1/1
