The JCPML acknowledges the assistance of John Curtin (son of Prime Minister John Curtin) in providing extra information about the house and of Beverley Lane (grand-daughter of John Curtin) in making the house available for recording in 1998 and for her significant oral history about the house.

This interpretation has been put together by Michal Bosworth with considerable assistance from the staff of the John Curtin Prime Ministerial Library.
