Summary
Discusses the silence of the historical sources on the Bogimbah Creek reserve on Fraser Island , commenced by Archibald Meston, and which operated from 1897 to 1904; Archibald Meston's views on segregation and use of permits; removal of people from Maryborough, Bundaberg, Childers, Durundur, Gympie, Roma,Georgina River, Stradbroke Island, Cooktown and Ravenswood to Bogimbah by April 1898; by November 1899 people from Ipswich, Helidon, toowoomba,Warwick, Mitchell, St George, Stanley River, Dawson River, Normanton, Russell River, Hervertron, Mackay, Maranoa, Paroo and Barwon Rivers were removed to Bogimbah; in March 1900 there were more removals from Charleville, Jimbour, Thompson River, Warrego, Townsville, Longreach, Inglewood and Goondiwindi; suggests that Bogimbah became a punitive, custodial and potentially correctional institution from 1898 when Meston started to send ex-prisoners from St Helena Island, Boggo Road gaol, Brisbane, Rockhamptongaol and the Roma lock-up; Roth began sending ex-prisoners from Townsville gaol as well as those people he saw as a possible danger to the white population; in 1900 the reserve was taken over by Anglican missionary Ernest Gribble; many of the people died both before and after Bogimbah became a mission; many people died of Ankylostomiasis (hookworm); in 1904 the mission closed and 117 people were sent north to Yarrabah and Fitzroy Island; notes that these removals were taking place as the Commonwealth was born
