dc.descriptionLeprosy is a relatively recent introduction to Australia. It is highly unlikely that the Aboriginal people suffered from leprosy prior to European settlement but when it became endemic they. were the group most severely affected. The Northern Territory's response to leprosy among the Aborigines was to establish a leprosarium on Channel Island in the Darwin Harbour in 1931 and for the next 24 years all persons known to have leprosy were isolated there. An island leprosarium was not a uniquely Australian phenomenon but part of an old European tradition. This book is based on a thesis of which copies are lodged in the Northern Territory University Library, Murdoch University Library and State Reference Library.en
