Biographical history

Greg Dickens is a retired cartographer, an amateur historian and photographer, who has been active in several national and state-based history organisations. He was born in 1945, at Brixham, Devon, and migrated to Australia with his family, aged five, settling in Tasmania. He was educated at Princes Street Primary School, Sandy Bay and New Town High School, before entering the Tasmanian Public Service in a 46-year career, working as a cartographer for both the Lands Department and Department of Mines, as well as engaging in field surveys and compiling reports on mining heritage for the Department of Mines (later Mineral Resources Tasmania). For one brief period he worked for the drafting and cartography division of Hobart printer and publisher Mercury-Walch. He composed many entries for The Companion to Tasmanian History on mining history subjects. Greg was formerly a member of the National Trust, the Tasmanian Transport Museum and the Tasmanian Historical Research Association. He remains active with the Australian Mining History Association and has written many articles for the association’s publications and annual conferences. During a lengthy sporting career, he played more than 400 games of football for Dunalley Football Club in the Tasman Football Association and a further 100 games for other competitions in southern Tasmania. Upon retirement from playing football, he has held roles with disciplinary tribunals, as a tribunal panel member and also as a coach and volunteer with the Southern Tasmania Junior Football League. He took many photographs of Tasmanian scenes with a 35mm Ricoh fixed lens film camera and a Pentax K1000 SLR camera.
