Series S001 - The life and work of Alec Costin


ProvenanceAlec Baillie Costin
Description

This series contains a broad selection of material related to Alec Costin’s life and work including publications, unpublished work and related documents. The following record sets, which relate to three of Costin’s seminal works, exemplify the broad range of Costin’s prolific writing and related documents included in this series:

1. The original manuscript - together with related photographs, maps and correspondence - for the report "High mountain catchments in Victoria in relation to land use", which was eventually published by the Victorian Soil Conservation Authority in 1957.

2. The publication "Trends in Vegetation at Kosciusko" (Parts I, II and III) as published in the Australian Journal of Botany in 1978. Related aerial photographs of sites are also included with these articles. This publication was the culmination of three decades of painstaking work undertaken within the CSIRO, Soil Conservation agencies in both New South Wales and Victoria and finally at the Australian National University as a visiting fellow. The publication and a large collection of associated research data and photographs (contained mainly in the respective series listed below in this finding aid) along permanent transects established in alpine areas, constitute one of the most important legacies for environmental science and conservation in Australia.

3. A diverse collection of documents related to the publication (in 2000) of the second edition of his influential book "Kosciuszko Alpine Flora" including many sections of draft writing and editorial comments, as well as correspondence with his co-authors Dane Wimbush, Max Gray and Colin Totterdell; the publishers (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, CSIRO); and organisations such as the Australian Alps Liaison Committee.

The series also includes talks by Alec Costin, interviews with him and publications written by other authors that focus on his life and work. In addition, it contains Costin's curriculum vitae, lists of his publications and a small number of documents related to his personal life.

This series constitutes a crucial resource for telling the story of Alec Costin’s life and work; engendering important insights into Alec Costin’s publications and how they came to fruition, whilst also giving a unique perspective on his personal and professional background, and how his research and policy work evolved in relation to key Australian scientific and conservation bodies such as the Soil Conservation Service of New South Wales, the CSIRO, the Australian National University, the Australian Academy of Science and the Australian Institute of Alpine Studies.
