Description

The material in this Series was stored by John Jenkin in filing cabinets, with labelled suspension files used for high-level subjects and manila folders within these titled at a more granular level. Many of these folders primarily contain photocopies drawn from a variety of sources, often accompanied by research notes and related correspondence. The suspension files have been discarded for preservation reasons, with the labelled tabs retained with the first item from that file. Inventory item titles have been taken from John Jenkin’s own manila file titles where available, with the broader suspension file tab recorded as the title qualifier, which appears directly beneath each title.

Series 1 consists of contextual material relating to William Henry Bragg and material from his early life, prior to his departure from the United Kingdom for Adelaide.

William Henry Bragg was born in Cumbria, 2nd July 1862 and was educated at Market Harborough Grammar School, King William's College on the Isle of Man, and Trinity College, Cambridge. He departed for Australia on the 14th January 1886 after being appointed to the University of Adelaide.

Material in this Series includes background information on William Henry Bragg's extended family, and particularly his youngest son Robert Charles Bragg, who was killed at Gallipoli during the First World War. It also includes contextual information, gathered by John Jenkin, on the ships William Henry Bragg travelled on to and from Australia, places he lived in Adelaide and his Church affiliations, as well as biographical information and William Henry Bragg’s own personal reminiscences.

The remainder of the material follows the early part of William Henry Bragg's life prior to his departure for Australia, largely relating to his education. Primary material includes marriage, birth and death certificates, school lists and exam papers. Secondary material includes contextual documents on places affiliated with William Henry Bragg, research notes and John Jenkin correspondence.
