Biography/History

Judge, N.S.W. Industrial Commission, 1936-1953; Trustee, Library of New South Wales; Fellow and president of Royal Australian Historical Society; and compiler of Bibliography of Australia. As a young man, Ferguson developed an interest in Australian history, complementing other interests he held in bibliography and book collecting. These areas of interest were embodied in Ferguson's major work, The bibliography of Australia, 1784-1900, published in seven volumes between 1941 and 1969. His collection of early Australiana, having expanded to include manuscripts, maps, printed ephemera and graphic materials, was progressively transferred to the National Library from 1938.
