Letters from the Field:
Correspondence Between UWA Academic Curt Teichert and Wife Trude 1938-1950
Palaeontologist Curt Teichert and his wife Trude fled Nazi Germany in 1937 and spent eight years in the Geology Department here under the Displaced German Scholars Programme. He travelled on fieldwork all over the State and regularly sent his wife delightful letters with his lively impressions of the interesting places and people he had encountered.

A translation of these letters, archived in UWA’s Geology Museum, provides the basis for this talk. Short excerpts chosen for their appeal and interest are accompanied by appropriate illustrations and give an insight to life in the remote areas of our State during this period, as well as introducing listeners to one of the more unusual UWA academics.

Jenny Bevan is an Honorary Research Fellow in geology and was for many years the Senior Curator of the UWA Geology Museum.
