Main Index

This site has been dormant since 2013-14 owing to multiple distractions. Many external links have become outdated. A start is being made on fixing these, and performing minor housekeeping and updating along the way.
Since our research for this website was completed, the Monash family has given permission for the NLA to digitise most of its holdings of Monash's correspondence. The results are available within Trove.
