About Tasmania, Australia, Teacher Employment History Cards, 1886-1945

This collection consists of employment history cards for male teachers in service in Tasmania, Australia between 1886 and 1945, though the majority of the cards date from the 1920s to 1940s. The following information is typically included on each card:

  • Name
  • Date of birth
  • Qualifications and training
  • Classification
  • School appointments

Often, more than one card was created for a teacher. Some cards appear to have been created retrospectively, especially for teachers who had long periods of service. In some cases, marital status was recorded as well.
