Nancy Keesing Fellowship 1996

Dear STAMAsters,

This item, from the State Library of New South Wales, has a bit of an
Australian focus but may be of more general interest due to the weight they
are giving to astronomy.

Nancy Keesing Fellowsip 1996

Wales as a centre of research into any aspect of Australian life and
