The Western Australian Prison Officer: A Record of Service 1880-1930 - David J. Barker


This dictionary records the service of male and female prison officers in Western Australia, during the period 1880-1930.

Gaps in the record of service is primarily due to gaps in the surviving official records. Some information collected from the period after 1930 is recorded in individual entries where applicable. 

For any prison officer serving prior to 1880, entries may be found in Warders and Gaolers: A Dictionary of Western Australian Prison Officers 1829-1879.

Quotations from original documents and newspaper articles are reproduced exactly and no corrections made to spelling, grammar and punctuation.
