SAHC Macquarie's (256th) Birthday Dinner
Saturday 3 February 2018 (6:30pm), Women's Club, 179 Elizabeth St, Sydney

Major General Lachlan Macquarie, CB (31 January 1762 – 1 July 1824) was a colonial administrator from Scotland. Macquarie served as the fifth and last autocratic Governor of New South Wales from 1810 to 1821, and had a leading role in the social, economic and architectural development of the colony. He is considered by historians to have had a crucial influence on the transition of New South Wales from a penal colony to a free settlement and therefore to have played a major role in the shaping of Australian society in the early nineteenth century.

Guest speaker: Ms Lorraine Kypiotis MA (Uni Syd) BA. Dip Ed (Uni Syd)
Outreach Coordinator, National Art School, Sydney
“From the Medici to Macquarie: Neoclassicism and the Colonial Ethos”
