Lord Mayor's Helen Taylor Research Award for Local History
The Lord Mayor’s Helen Taylor Research Award for Local History provided support for history students and independent researchers undertaking history or heritage projects which have a focus on informing or educating the public about local history or heritage. The program aimed to increase the community’s access and appreciation of Brisbane’s history and heritage.
The program honoured the work of local historian, Helen Taylor, who combined her skills in researching and writing about history with a passion for making history accessible to the community. In Helen Taylor’s memory, the program encouraged both excellence in research and innovation in popularising the results.
The Lord Mayor’s Helen Taylor Research Award for Local History is no longer available.
Brisbane City Council gratefully thanks Helen Taylor for her valuable contribution to Brisbane’s history.
