Resources available to the Friends of Mawson

Friends of Mawson are privileged in being able to view and indeed read some unique polar publications held by the South Australian Museum. Included are books like a first edition of Mawson's "Home of the Blizzard". Unfortunately access to some publications, such as "Aurora Australis" - the first book published in the Antarctic - and "The South Polar Times", cannot be guaranteed as issues such as conservation and staffing need to be considered.

The full listing runs to some 23 A4 pages and you can view it here.

To arrange a time and place to access one of the publications, contact Mark Pharaoh at the South Australian Museum on +61 8 8207 7574 or email .
