Kevin NOLAN - "1001 Trivia Questions"

A public servant for 33 years in both Commonwealth and local government, Kevin, from an

early age, possessed a keen interest in how things got their names. His experiences in working in many different locales in South Australia and beyond gave rise to many questions which helped provide material for his book.

He has always been interested in history, geography and who’s who and has a natural curiosity

about the hows and whys of the naming of things especially relating to the state in which we live.

Recording questions and answers as an ad hoc process in 1998 developed into the idea of writing

a trivia book, and upon retirement the time became available to bring this task to fruition.

Kevin will tell us all about it and will include a light-hearted trivia quiz for our members during his presentation.

Kevin will have his book for sale for $20

 


 

 


 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 South Australia was settled as a British colony at a very exciting time; development of the  'portable' steam engine, electricity and the telegraph were creating amazing opportunities and changing peoples’ outlooks.  And all these inventions had a part to play in making South Australia a leader in providing meteorological services to the community in the late 1800's. 

 

Tony Rogers and Judy Ferrante have just written a book entitled 'The Weatherman from Greenwich' which brings these things together and also gives a rare insight into Adelaide - the young bustling community  of the mid 1800's.  It was a place which attracted its fair share of  entrepreneurs and other characters!  The book has enticed Beth to investigate further - the beginnings  of meteorological services in Britain and Australia - especially South Australia.  What made it possible and why was South Australia a leader?  This is what she will talk about today.
