Description
 

What is a Western Australia Blue Book?
Blue Books were compilations of information on public servants gathered from details submitted to the Colonial Secretary's Office. Sometimes called 'Public Service Lists' or 'Civil Service Lists', these include details of people employed in the Western Australian Public Service for the year of publication. After listings of various appointed and elected Government officers and members and various statistics, these volumes record appointment by department.

About the information of this CD ...
This CD contains each year of the Western Australia Blue Book from 1871 to 1877. Each year is approximately 80 pages in length and lists many people in public service employment for that year. The information generally given for each entry is: Office, Name, Date of Appointment, By Whom Appointed and under What Instrument, Annual Salary and Date of First Appointment.
