AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'During the period in which Lock worked, distinctions were made between full-blood and part Aborigines. For this reason I have used these terms in the text, although they are not in current usage. Similarly, the term half-caste was popular in the early part of this century. The mission society to which Lock belonged underwent four name changes between 1894 and 1940. Between 1894 and 1899 it was the La Perouse Aborigines' Mission (LPAM), from 1899 until 1908 it was the New South Wales Aborigines' Mission (NSWAM), between 1908 and 1929 it was known as the Australian Aborigines' Mission (AAM), and since 1929 has been the United Aborigines' Mission (UAM). If a particular incident or time period is being referred to in the text, I have used the name appropriate to that time. Otherwise I have used the current name. The apostrophe in the names of both the society and its magazines (the Australian Aborigines' Advocate and United Aborigines' Messenger) appears and disappears over the years. For the sake of consistency I have included it in all cases except in direct quotations when it does not appear. There are also doubts about the spelling of three place names in Central Australia. I have used Coniston and not Conniston, Tea Tree and not Ti Tree, and Woodford Creek rather than Woodforde Creek. The first two are taken from a current map, the last disagrees with today's map, but appears in contemporary letters to a significant degree. Finally, I have referred to the "Finding of the Board of Enquiry concerning the killing of natives in Central Australia by Police Parties and others, and concerning other matters.", of January 1929, as the 1929 Enquiry.'
