Humphrey McQueen’s archive: an offer from Honest History

Alert readers will have noticed (and many will have read) our offerings over the last few months from the archives of noted Australian historian, Humphrey McQueen. Some time ago, Humphrey made available to us much of his out-of-copyright material, some of it dating back 40 years and much of it pioneering work across many areas of Australian history.

We have featured Humphrey on Australian women in the 1980s, authors Eleanor Dark and CJ Dennis, the influenza pandemic, and the early history of Quadrant. Other material from Humphrey (including his ground-breaking work on the Frontier Wars) can be found on our site via our Search engine or in our References by author A-Z listing.

Below is a full bibliography of the material we have in our vault. If you would like copies of any of these items, please get in touch with us at admin@honesthistory.net.au and tell us what you are after. We will then arrange to get the copy or copies to you by whatever means is most convenient.

Honest History thanks Humphrey McQueen for his generosity. Some of this material is available also on the Surplus Value website.
