Additional notes from the National Library of Australia (Accessed: 8 October 2010):
 
George William Rusden (1819-1903) came to Australia with his family in 1834 and worked for a number of years as a pastoralist. In 1849 he was appointed agent for the National Schools. In this capacity he rode 10,000 miles on horseback in Eastern Australia from Brisbane to Portland. In 1851 he became clerk in the office of the Victorian Colonial Secretary, and in 1856 Clerk of the Victorian Parliaments. He was a founding member of the Council of the University of Melbourne, a member of the Shakespeare Society and three years the Mayor of Brighton. In 1882 Rusden gave his library to Trinity College. He retired to England in 1882 and embarked on a life of writing, traveling and visiting his many friends. Rusden corresponded with many prominent and famous people, including novelists, Charles Dickens and Anthony Trollope, and General Charles Gordon. Rusden wrote many articles on topics, religious, political and literary. In 1883 Rusden published a History of Australia and a History of New Zealand. Rusden returned to Melbourne in 1893, and died in 1903.

Curatorial notes
 
Examines how portraits provide on colonialism and the acceptance the dress codes of local populations. This includes both the wearing of local clothing by European travellers and residents along with the indigenous populations of areas being photographed in western clothing styles. Photographs are also included that show interactions between different racial groups.

Curatorial notes
 
This Visual Index will explore issues of how diverse ethnic groups have been seen by outsiders, seen themselves and come to recognise how their society has had its cultural values stereotyped and been marginalized by the views of others.

To do this section well we need input from curators, photo-historians and those who understand the contexts within which different photographs and artworks have been created.
