This Day in History: 1963-05-15

What was probably the inaugural meeting of the Old Gaol Committee was held in Toodyay.  Those present were Dallas E. Ludemann, Edward Davy, John P. Britt, Rica Erickson, Therese Watkins, Mavis Jefferys and Ralph Preston, the Toodyay Shire Clerk. The meeting was convened in order to co-ordinate and present exhibits in a more fitting manner as a period of time had elapsed since the official opening. It was thought exhibits would be best if they were of local material as a general policy.
