KHA NEWSLETTER CONTENTS INDEX
ISSUES 1 to 140
The object of this document is to create an index to the contents of all newsletters published by the
Association to enable a search for any published topic.
SUBJECT listing is topics other than hut names.
HUTS listing is references to a hut name.
PUBLICATIONS listing is details of any publication described and also lists the poems.
Newsletters held in the Association office are bound in numerical and therefore chronological order except for several errors listed below. These errors however do not overly complicate the location of material.
Each reference is identified by a two part numeric or alpha numeric code as follows.
22/6 means the item is to be found in newsletter number 22 on page 6.
Some none newsletter material is sometimes bound between consecutive newsletters. This material includes AGM minutes, membership lists, correspondence, huts lists and the like whether or not the material was actually issued with the preceding newsletter.
17/A means that the item referred to is found in material bound in a position following newsletter 17.
Be aware that items of information can occur multiple times in the text. For instance an item about a hut can be reported in a mid year newsletter then later in the AGM presidents report and perhaps in the HMO
report as well. No attempt has been made to filter these occurrences.

This is an invaluable resource for research, and contains much material on the huts and life of the early High Country settlers.
An complete scan of the newspapers is available, with electronically converted text. I would encourage you to create an account and correct the text for huts articles you feel are important. The electronic conversion process is not ideal, and if everyone corrected just a few articles, the complete full text of this wonderful resource would be even better.
A sample of the types of searches and number of relevant articles found, conducted by Graham Scully, is:
|Toolong Diggings||104 articles|
|Ligars Track||850 articles|
