Formatted abstract
Ronald Hamlyn-Harris served as director of the Queensland Museum in the early twentieth century. Under his directorship, the museum underwent many institutional changes – the most notable being in the areas of anthropology and ethnography. Driven by Hamlyn-Harris's personal interest, the study of Queensland's Aboriginal populations became central to the museum practices, as he oversaw the highpoint in collecting, researching and displaying cultural materials. His influence is particularly evident in the changing displays, public engagement strategies and scientific publications.
