Biographies

The National Commonwealth Laboratory was proposed by Dr Walter Rosenhain, a Fellow of the Royal Society and Superintendent of the Metallurgy Department at the National Physical Laboratory in the UK, who was employed as a consultant by the Australian Government in 1914. The intended role of the National Commonwealth Laboratory, which was never realised, was to: establish and maintain national standards of length, mass, measuring instruments and gauges; test materials; and to offer advice to, and conduct investigations for industry.
