Description

Documents in the National Archives’ collection reveal the sweep of Alfred Deakin’s vision and the practical limits of office, including the frustration of securing a site for the national capital. Included are records of the Federation conventions and conferences (1890–98), correspondence with the Governor-General, and papers relating to the Panama Pacific International Exhibition and the creation of the Federal Capital Territory.
