1. List: George Coppin's Biographical Omission - President, Carlton Football Club
    George Coppin's Biographical Omission - President, Carlton Football Club thumbnail image
    Public

    Alec Bagot's biography of George Coppin fails to mention that Coppin was president of Carlton Football Club (CFC). He was elected to that office in the seven years 1866 to 1872 inclusive. It seems a curious omission.
    This list accompanies my article and includes images, book and online sources and newspaper reports. It’s footnotes but much more. Also the mostly chronological list of newspaper reports helps make sense of the place of Coppin's presidency within his biography.

    MY ARTICLE 2020-03-25.
    The biographies of George Selth Coppin (1819–1906), “father of the Australian theatre”, fail to mention he was also President of Carlton Football Club for seven years. I look into what appears to be a curious biographical omission.

    The final three chapters deal with the period following Coppin's 1866 return to Melbourne, however no mention is made of Carlton football club. This book is a main resource for other biographical entries (ADB, Wikipedia).

    Mrs Harriet Hilsdon (also Hillsden, Hilsden) was the widow of a master mariner and sister-in-law of actor G.V. Brooke. While in Sydney in 1855 Mrs Brooke asked Coppin to help the family. Coppin visited them - Harriet with two girls and two boys. The eldest Lucy, 14, "helped look after her sister, Harriet, and younger brothers Charles and Frank." (Bagot 185-186)

    Frank Hillsden played for Carlton 1865-1872.
    Charlie Hillsden played for Carlton 1867-1869.

    "Some recalled a Carlton club in existence in 1861, but the present club was formed in July 1864. There is however no record that it played any games in that season. It has been claimed that Carlton‘s first AGM recorded the results of the 1864 season, but these results actually refer to the 1865 season. It thus appears that Carlton was formed in 1864 but did not play until 1865. It is also likely that Carlton and Royal Park were virtually interchangeable at this time for every player in Royal Park’s 1864 team turned out for Carlton in 1865." Page 35


    "It was not unusual for players to turn out for two or three clubs during the season." Page 37


    "Carlton was referred to as Carlton Union, which suggests that it was represented by a number of players from Royal Park, as were the Warehousemen." Page 38
