This research is funded by the UTS Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellowship.
Support has also been provided by the UTS Faculty of Design, Architecture & Building.

The oral history component of this research is undertaken in partnership with the National Library of Australia, Canberra.


I’d also like to acknowledge the wonderful work done by 2SER’s History Lab podcast and the Australian Centre for Public History.


And last but definitely not least – a big thank you to all the engineering patternmakers who have taken the time to talk to me about their views and experiences. This project is nothing without all of you.
