‘The Life of Sir Hubert Wilkins’ – Carolyn Spooner BA (Hons), Dip. Lib. Studies

October 25, 2016 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm


Carolyn has worked at the State Library for 37 years and loves its mix of heritage collections and the latest technology. She currently delivers community-learning programs, assists researchers, and coordinates the Library’s transcription program.

Carolyn explores the life of the little-known South Australian Sir Hubert Wilkins—polar explorer but so much more—in a slideshow of sumptuous images from the collections of the State Library, from rare books to a ticket to hear Sir Arthur Conan Doyle at the Adelaide Town Hall in 1920. Readings from Sir Hubert’s writings reveal an endearing man of science and spiritualism.
