2018 Interview ‘William Ah Ket: The first Chinese-Australian barrister’

This lovely portrait features Toylaan Ah Ket as a little girl with her mother and other friends on the tennis court of the Chinese Consulate, c1922. Further details on the CHIA website.

I really enjoyed meeting and talking with Jane Lee, the producer of this episode of ‘History Listen’. She interviewed me about William Ah Ket and the history of Chinese in Melbourne. She’s woven together a lovely program with interviews with descendants and also oral history audio with Toylaan Ah Ket, William’s youngest daughter (now deceased). You can listen to it here.
