1909

Summary

The second iteration of the Western Australian Natural History Society lasted for five years from 1904. It was an expansion of the Mueller Botanic Society to include a wider range of natural history subjects with a consequent name change. This revamped Society continued the publication of the Journal started by its predecessor. Often meetings lacked a quorum: a proposal on 1909 led it its revival as the Natural History and Science Society of Western Australia.
