Formatted Abstract/Summary
Michael William Duckett White collection consists of research material relating histories of the Duckett White, the Macdonald, the Nicholson and the Morisset families from 1886 to 1999.

Michael William Duckett White is a descendant of William Duckett White (1807-1893), pastoralist, politician, and early immigrant to Queensland. He began researching the history of the family in the 1970s, and held a family reunion on 9 Nov 1990, the 150th anniversary of the arrival of William Duckett White in Australia, marking the occasion as well with the publication of the book 'An Early Settler: The Duckett White Family in Australia'. In 2016 he published '19th century pioneer : Frank Villeneuve Nicholson family in Australia'.
