Who was Augustus Henry Glissan

Pen

Augustus Henry Glissan was the manager of Rocklands station near Camooweal, on the Queensland–Northern Territory border. Glissan recognised Oscar's talent for drawing and gave him an exercise book and some pencils to record his thoughts and memories.

The book remained the property of Glissan who then wrote the index and sent the work to his friend Charles Bage. Glissan died in 1935, aged 87.
