The NLA has VIOLATED the privacy of Nevin's descendants by the inclusion of emails and other personal data connected with Nevin's photographic career in this file. The NLA has NOT sought permission from Nevins' descendants to provide the public with copies of personal correpsondence. The NLA thinks this 19th century police photographer's career so HOT they have established a no-access 99 year file to ensure that future generations have access to the Nevin descendants' personal details and correspondence. This puerility passes as librarianship at the NLA.

The item referred to in the anonymous post is a file of research materials assembled primarily for the benefit of Library staff. It contains published articles and information from other collecting institutions about photographs of the Port Arthur convicts. There is no personal detail about Nevin descendents in the file, which is kept in a staff work area. The existence of these research files is recorded in our catalogue and Trove in case their contents may be of interest to other researchers.

YOU SHOULD REVISE YOUR STATEMENT ON THESE CATALOGUES WITH THIS CORRECTION:

'No photographer's stamp OTHER THAN Nevin's appears on these convict PHOTOGRAPHS: most of the NLA's items are copies sent from the QVMAG in 1982 and 1985. Most were not stamped verso by Nevin because only ONE trade sample was required under Patents and Tender registration for the government. . No photographers OTHER THAN commercial and police photographers Thomas Nevin and Constable John Nevin have ever had an authentic and validated historical attribution. There was no photographer of prisoners in Tasmania called A.H. Boyd. His name has been falsely associated with these prisoner photographs on the basis of ONE sentence in a paragraph in an unpublished children's FICTIONAL tale written in the 1930s by his niece E.M. Hall. The tale DOES NOT mention Boyd, and the tale DOES NOT mention photographing prisoners. A paragraph in FICTION cannot be used to prove an HISTORICAL FACT "

There is evidence of extensive internet stalking by an NLA staff member, at staff computer IP 203.4.200.250, and at other NLA staff computers IP 203.4.201# , 202, 203 204. 205 etc, of Nevin's descendants by name as key word searches at weblogs dealing with Nevin's convict (ie Tasmanian prisoner) photographs - viz: stalking at http://thomasnevin.wordpress.com. http://prisonerpics.blogspot.com and http://tasmanianphotographer.blogspot.com. The NLA has also infringed copyright of research at these weblogs by encouraging the PhD student Julia Clark to purloin chunks from these weblogs' key articles, copy the ideas,describe the SLNSW Nevin photos never before published, publish it all as her own work, and attack Nevin's legacy through his descendants Clark's MO is gossip, sychophancy and intellectual theft, traits which the sock puppets on the NLA staff readily condone and promote. Promotion of the A.H. Boyd "issue" is a scam, one of the silliest SHILLS to emerge in the history of Australian photography.

While I would prefer not to respond to allegations of impropriety from someone who takes shelter in anonymity, the seriousness of the claims demands an answer.

The Nevin descendents websites are publicly available on the internet. Anyone can freely read them, including National Library staff interested in photographic history and the continuing debate over the attribution of the Port Arthur convict photographs. It is not a breach of copyright to support research and study.

While not wishing to suppress debate on the merits of the attribution to A H Boyd or Thomas Nevin, further anonymous posts which use intemperate language to potentially defame a third party or do not adhere to Trove's Terms of Use, will be taken down by the National Library.

The Library has closed comments on this item, and removed all comments added since October 2010. This decision was made reluctantly, and in response to continuing exchange of aggressive and potentially defamatory comments by a small number of individuals over a period of several years.
