The Northern Tasmanian Home for Boys Collection, which is held by the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery, contains a wide range of records including annual reports, correspondence concerning children, Superintendents' reports and diaries, lists of children at the Home, reports about boys who had left the home, applications from families to take children for school holidays, a receipt for 130 files taken by the Department of Community Welfare, and some photographs.
A number of these records contain personal information and are closed. Others have open access. Contact the Queen Victoria Museum and Art Gallery for further information.
