2018 News Releases




Henry Sutton, The Innovative Man book launched

Date : 01 / 12 / 2018
Author : WIA

A book about an almost forgotten early Australian inventor and wireless experimenter, Henry Sutton of Ballarat, Victoria was launched at the Federation University, Ballarat (which grew from the Ballarat School of Mines) last Saturday, 1 December 2018.

Written and researched by Henry's great grand daughter Lorayne Branch and containing about 400 pages, the book covers many stories about Henry's interests. It is accompanied by research references from both Australia and Europe where he appears to have been better known that at home!

The book promises to clarify not only Henry's work in early Wireless experiments including those with the Defence Department pre WWI and involvement with the first Coastal Radio stations, but also help flesh out more about his activities surrounding a number of scientific developments in this country during the late 19th and early part of the 20th Century

You can learn more about Henry Sutton on Radio National's - "The Science Show", that was broadcast on Saturday December 8 at 12pm (and later repeats) with Robin Williams, who was at the Ballarat launch.
