Minutes of the Conference held on the 9th of February, at the Esperanto Hall, Milson's Pt., Sydney, Convened by the Bush Music Club at which representatives of the Billabong Band, Victoria, Queensland Bush Music Club and the Brisbane Singers were represented. 

These Minutes were in the front of a damaged Minute book, containing Annual & monthly Bush Music Club minutes from April 1957 monthly meeting to March 1978 AGM. As pages from the front are missing, this book might have continued the first minute book, 14th Oct 1954 to 11th March 1955. Missing pages were not found in  Archives. (June 2020)
As pages were loose & some were out of place, they were numbered before scanning.

red Minutes Book 1957-1978

The record of the meeting before lunch is on 5 numbered narrow pages, & the afternoon proceedings are typed on 7 wider pages. Both sections were stapled together.

Unfortunately the minutes break off at the end of page 7, part of the way through an address by the Secretary of the Folk Lore Society, Mr Edgar Walters. Page 7 is only held by one staple, & we will probably never know how many pages are missing
