    1923 Sydney Mail Feature - It is interesting to note that Mr. Bradfield's secretary. Miss Kathleen Butler, refuses to satisfy any of the feefera with which she is constantly approached on the subject of the bridge. Old sayings die hard, but this woman can and does, keep the secrets of the briago well and truly. Ail the specifications pass through
    her capable fingers, and she practically docs not let her right hand know what the left hand doeth.

    1929-03-11 - This is the first of three articles submitted by Mr. Ralph Freeman, the chief engineer of Dorman, Long and Co., the successful tenders for the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The article was written while Mr. Freeman was in Sydney to inspect progress of the bridge in 1929. The article tells the story of how the bridge design was by Mr. Freeman. This article started a "row" between the various parties as to who actual designed the Sydney Harbour Bridge and in the end what was seen as the meaning of the word "Design". There are two further articles by Mr.Freeman discussing the bridge construction and erection under this listing. . . . . . . . . . Corrected.

    1932-03-19 - As it was 80 years ago mail sent by sailing ships took anything up to six months to reach Sydney from London, and one can well realise the feelings when the first steam mail ship the P. and O. Company's R.M.S. Chusan reached Sydney in 1852 in 79 days, or 67 days actual steaming time. Then Kingsford Smith left Australia with air mail on December 3 1931 and landed in England on December 16.
    Today's Prophetic words. "Those, in the light of events! Looking back upon Sydney in the days of its bullock waggons; looking upon it to-day, and upon the bridge as a noble monument to human endeavour, and to a generation's vision; and looking with eyes of faith into the future and its yet greater possibilities, those to-day who have reached life's sunset might easily regret that they were born too soon. .....

The North Shore Bridge is far and away the most important State job yet undertaken, and it will retain its importance long after all of us have gone. Miss Kathleen Butler is inseparably bound up with the great undertaking.Miss Butler undertook all correspondence with tenderers for the bridge throughout the world during the Chief Engineer's absence abroad in 1922.

    Miss Kathleen Butler, one of the brightest of the younger set of the Public Service, and from that moment Miss Butler identified herself with the making of the bridge. She attended to all the correspondence with the tenderers' throughout the world during the chief engineer's absence abroad in 1922. She also prepared the valuable notes submitted with the Bridge Bill introduced last year, and was warmly congratulated upon her colossal achievement. Miss Butler is now confidential secretary to Mr. Bradfield, and is present at all interviews with the tenderers, and her invaluable services are so generously recognised by her chief that she has had her portrait included in the souvenir booklet that commemorates the event. When the first sod was turned a few months ago Mr. Bradfield specially mentioned Miss Butter's services, and in subsequent eulogistic speeches has publicly thanked her.

    NOTABLE AUSTRALIAN GIRL.
    ———
    Big Sydney Bridge.
    ———
    Miss Kathleen Butler, the confidential secretary to Dr. J. J. C. Bradfield, engineer of the huge North Shore bridge, Sydney, gets a column to her-self in the London "Evening Standard." This is what is said about her: —
    A young Australian girl who has
    done remarkable work in connection
    with the great new £4,000,000 Sydney
    Harbor Bridge is now in London.
    Her name is Miss Kathleen Butler,
    and she has been installed in a room
    in the office of Messrs. Dorman, Long,
    & Co., the successful tendered for the
    bridge, attending to most difficult and
    technical, questions in regard to the
    contract, and dealing with a mass of
    correspondence that comes into her
    office daily.
    Romantic Advance.
    Kathleen Butler is a typical out-of-doors Australian girl, and she will tell you gaily that when her work is over she indulges in her favourite "vices" — surf bathing, dancing, and lawn tennis. Her career, even in a young country, where names are made more easily than in an older and more settled community has been an amazing and
    romantic one. Ten years ago she
    was a clerk in the N.S. Wales Public
    Works Department, without any
    technical qualifications and with no
    training beyond that which a practical
    Irish mother had been able to get her
    in the Convent Schools of Sydney,
    where err girl was educated. Her
    father was a station-master.
    When the scheme for Sydney Har-
    bor Bridge and the big underground
    railway system was finally agreed on
    by Parliament Miss Butler was the
    first officer appomted to the depart-
    ment created to deal with these two
    great engineering projects. She was
    appointed on her merits and because
    she had mustered all sorts of intricate
    technical matters of engineeing dur-
    ing the years she was in the Govern-
    ment service.
    The Engineer's Praise.
    She was ultimately appointed con-
    fldential, secretary to Dr. J. J. C.
    Bradfield, the designer and engineer
    of the Bridge, and in a thesis which
    he recently wrote for his degree of
    Doctor of Science and Engineering at
    Sydney University, where he is a
    lecturer, Dr. Bradfield paid her a re-
    markable tribute.
    The technique of the specification,
    Dr. Bradfield said, was hers, and it
    would be impossible to find a better
    arranged or better thought-out speeci-
    fication.
    Exciting; Days.
    Dr. Bradfield said that, himself ex-
    cepted, his confidental secretary
    "alone knows of the many issues in-
    volved in tendering for the bridge.
    Her conscientious and efficient help
    has materially lightened the respons-
    bility, which the design and construe-
    tion of these two great engineering
    works have entailed, and in this thesis
    I wish to place on record my sincere
    thanks to the lady for her invaluable
    assistance.
    In addition to the important part
    she played in drafting the specifica-
    tion Miss Butler also helped in the
    preparation of the report on the ten-
    ders—a historical document which
    she signed as secretary.
    "We were working on that report
    six weeks, night and day," she said to
    an "Evening Standard" interviewer
    Fix this text"because the tenderers were all wait-
    ing to hear their fate, and we wanted
    to let them, get hack to America,
    England, and. Canada as soon as pos-
    sible. I, think I know that report and
    the specification1 off by heart. Those
    were exciting days. I was the only
    woman present in the Minister's room
    when the. tenders were opened. It
    was a most exiting moment,"
