Poulson, Bruce

Date: 1998 -

Description: The Hitchins family is the oldest still associated with Lune River and the Far South. John Hitchins arguably has contributed more to the collection of Far South history than any other individual apart from Gloria Heather from Recherche Bay. The file contains transcripts of some of the tapes made by Parry Kostoglu for his archaeological history of the timber industry, as well as transcripts and notes made by Bruce Poulson over several years. Apart from Forestry, Hitchins gives wonderful insights into family and social life in bygone eras. He spent the last years of his life as a fettler building the Ida Bay railway.
