Shirley Strickland

Let’s remember one of WA’s great Olympians, Shirley Strickland. The State Library holds her private archives, photographs and an oral history with Shirley. Listen as Dr Kate describes the contribution Shirley made well beyond the athletics field.

You can come into the Library and request to listen (or read a transcript) of Shirley Strickland's oral history. Alternatively, you can listen online at National Library of Australia.  Learn a little bit abut Shirley on the "Three Cheers for Shirley"  State Library Facebook post. 

Recorded live on ABC Radio Perth on 30 July 2021.
