Description of this AgencyDescription of this Agency
The 1849 Select Committee which advised the abolition of the Office of the Chief Protector of Aborigines did not recommend any alternative scheme. After the dismantling of the protectorate system LaTrobe retained William Thomas (previously Assistant Protector of Aborigines, Westernport District) as Guardian of Aborigines in the Counties of Bourke, Mornington and Mount Evelyn from January 1, 1850. The office was abolished in 1860 and replaced with the Central Board Appointed to Watch Over the Interests of Aborigines (VA 514)
