Summary

Lord Gowrie unveiled the monument to commemorate William James Farrer (1845-1906), the famous wheat experimentalist who developed rust-resistant strains of wheat on his property "Lambrigg", at Tharwa during the Queanbeyan Centenary Celebrations in 1939. To honour this remarkable pioneer, the Commonwealth printed his picture on the old $2 note.
