Summary
  • Henry Bournes Higgins (1851-1929).
  • Text for heritage marker
  • The Federation Markers project, jointly funded by the Commonwealth Government and Stonnington Council, was intended to commemorate the centenary of Federation by means of a series of plaques to be erected around the municipality. Following public consultation, 50 historically significant themes were identified, to which were later added a further 25 themes. Half of these relate to the Malvern district. After installation, the markers were documented in a publication 'City of Stonnington Federation Markers' (refer record #7632), and also added to the Council's web page. In some cases, the markers as documented were edited to fit a standard allocated space. For this reason, and also to allow for subject searching of these themes, the full text of each marker has been reproduced in discrete database records. Note that any images that accompany the markers may be viewed from Council's web page, or by visiting the specific site of interest. Due to installation constraints, some markers were not installed or have since been removed.

Higgins was a father of Federation, a Member of the first Commonwealth Parliament, a High Court Judge and President of the Arbitration Court. His 1907 'Harvester Judgment' was the first attempt to set a minimum wage based on the needs of a worker and his family. The Higgins electorate is named after him.
