Correspondence from the Manager, Rawlinsons Holdings' following the retirement of Shane Stone as Chief Minister of Australia's Northern Territory. Extensive mail, fax and telephone messages were received from throughout the Territory and from Australia wide, hence, a small selection of the correspondence has been included in the archives. Extract: '...wish to congratulate you for the tireless work that you and your family have carried out for the Territory...hopefully your experience and enthusiasm will not be lost...". Shane Stone's reply of May 4 attached. Chief Minister Stone opened the Rawlinsons Darwin office on 17 June 1996. From 1983 Rawlinsons published the Australian Construction Handbook, Australia's largest library of construction cost information for medium and large projects.
