Peter Ludlow
As well as my Moreton Bay researches, I have more recently received commissions to write other works such as the history of Brisbane's Mater Hospital Pharmacy, Queensland's German Connections (co author), and the history of the Port of Brisbane.
In 2013/14 I was a resource person and co-author of a book for the Museum of Brisbane's exhibition entitled "The Many Lives of Moreton Bay".
Another personal project has been the collection of all my writings about Peel Island's quarantine station and Lazaret (Leprosarium).This is now available as a PDF file which may be viewed on any computer, smart phone, or tablet. Details are available on my website at
My 2014/15 project was the researching and writing a book for the Cleveland Library entitled "World War 1 Heroes of the Redlands"., which hey plan to publish.
Most recently I have researched the family history of George Symons, a well known and respected suit maker in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne last century.
