Dorothy Wickham's Freemasons on the Goldfields: Ballarat & District 1853 - 2013 was launched by Bob Jones, Grand Master of the United Grand Lodge of Victoria, at the Ballarat Masonic Centre on 4 December 2013. It was warmly received by over 100 people who attended the launch. This is a well researched and beautifully illustrated book.
As the title suggests this history focusses on fremasonry in the Ballarat district from its inception to the present day. More than this, its sets these regional developments into a much broader context with a detailed discussion of the origins of freemasonry in Europe and its translation to the colonies in Australia. It explains many of the compexities of the movement in clear prose, using its establishment in the Ballarat district as what must be a case study for the much wider establishment of the movement across Australia.
