History is not only to provide for posterity the preservation of facts about events or things, but more importantly to focus attention on the deeds and activities of people. While much has been written of the history of the town, district and organisations, the Apex Club of Kadina felt that there was nothing devoted solely to the preservation of the average citizen of this period. In 1976 they compiled and published this book of biographies of a number of 'present day' personalities of the region, covering Kadina, Moonta, Paskeville, Wallaroo, Moonta, Moonta Bay, Port Hughes, and North Beach.
The 'Biographical Guide to Northern Yorke Peninsula' is very scarce, with only a limited print run of 210 copies. One page is used for each person, and includes information such as full name, date and place of birth, often parents names, education, and working life, hobbies, sports, marital status, family, clubs or associations that he/she was involved with and more. Each entry also includes a photograph, and most include the signature of the person concerned (only in the editor's copy, from which this book was scanned)
A valuable record for those in South Australia with current connections to the region.
