An invitation to the launch of Glenthorne: Heritage, History and Environment by Pamela Smith, Keryn Walshe and Alan Burns. Afternoon tea and a tour of the grounds will follow the launch:
The 208 hetare Glenthorne property (formerly Lizard Lodge) is significant for its association with a notable early South Australian, Major Thomas Shuldham O’Halloran, its later association with the Commonwealth Government as the Australian Army’s No 9 Remount Depot (1913-1947) and as the CSIRO Glenthorne Field Station (1947-1996). The property entered a new era when it was transferred to the South Australian government in 1997 and then to the University of Adelaide in 2001. Glenthorne: Heritage, History and Environment is the outcome of research spanning two decades. The nineteenth century and early twentieth century history and archaeology of Glenthorne was researched by staff and students from Flinders University, and the histories of the No. 9 Remount Depot Glenthorne and the CSIRO Field Station Glenthorne have not previously been published. The Friends of Glenthorne have documented the environment of Glenthorne, including over 90 bird species, and its recent political history including the transfer of Glenthorne to the University of Adelaide.
