Builders of W.A— The Chan cellor of the 'University of W.A., Dr. Saw, M.L.C., has selected the following as the 15 men whose work stands out above all others as the makers of W.A. :— Sir James Stirl ing and Sir William Robinson, Governors of the State before the advent of responsible Government; Lord Forrest, explorer and states man ; William Padbury and m Sir William Loton, pioneers in agricul tural and pastoral industries, mer chants and philanthropists; Artniu* Bayley (discoverer of Oool gardie) ; Pat. Han nan, discoverer of Kalgoorlie; Alex. Forrest, ex plorer and civic administrator ; Anthony Hordern, promoter of Great Southern railways ; Edward Keane, promoter of Midland rail way ; C. Y. O'Connor, engineer for Fremantle Harbour and Coolgardie Water Scheme ; Frank Wilson, statesman:; Bishop Hate, founder of secondary education ; Sir Cyril Jackson, reformer of elementai-y education ; Sir Winthrop Hackett, philanthropist, first Chancellor ot University and newspaper proprie tor. The Perth 'Daily News' states that to the majority of colo nists his omission of the name of Captain Roe from his selection will doubtless be a surprise. He was W-A.'s first explorer and Sur veyor-General, from the day Cap tain Roe landed with Governor ?Stirling at Fremantle by the Par melia in 1829, until he passed out during the SO's. Outside of his explloratory usefulness, which be stowed upon him the unique dis tinction of 'Father of Australian Exploration,' Captain Roe's work concerning education and research, and as founder of the Public Li brary and the Museum, should place his name very high indeed in the niche of makers of all that has proved edifving and useful to the people of {Western Australia, for j whom he worked so laboriously i during his long and eventful life. |
