- Chief Protector Gale's Letter to Chief of Police: Removal of Aboriginal Children 1909
This letter was written in 1909 by the Chief Protector of Aborigines, Charles Gale to the Chief of Police in Western Australia. The letter gives an insight into why Gale thought children should be removed from their families and communities, and the type of details that the police should send him so that children could be identified and selected for removal.
