AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In celebration of our centenary the Mitchell Library presents ONE Hundred from 9 March - 16 June 2010. ONE Hundred reaches down into the riches of the Library's incomparable and internationally renowned collection and presents just one hundred items which tell, in their unique and surprising way, some aspect of the Australian and Pacific story.

'Founded on the personal collection of wealthy Sydney book collector, David Scott Mitchell, who also provided a sizeable endowment, the Library has been actively collecting for a century... Ranging in date from the late 1400s to 2008, the exhibition includes manuscripts, pictures, maps, books, oral histories, and objects: a rollcall of the famous and the notorious; the quiet achievers and the noisy larrikins; the conventional and the rebels; the remembered and the unjustly forgotten, all with a fascinating story to tell.'

Objects from the exhibition are displayed on ONE Hundred Online. The website also details the history of the State Library revealing 'some of the historic images and archival footage that tell the stories of both the Library and our nation'.
