Sir Frederick Samson and Family
This page was made as an entry in the 1996 National History Challenge by
Beth Gouldthorp and Rebecca Peters. It
won the WA State Finals, as well as the year 9/10 section, and was one of the national finalists.
The aim of our challenge is to acknowledge the contributions and efforts of the Samson Family,
particularly Frederick Samson and his importance in history. Beginning from Lionel Samson's
immigration to Australia, this presentation will take you through the Samson House, the home of
Michael Samson and family, to the achievements and retirement of Sir Frederick Samson, Mayor of
Fremantle for twenty-one years.
