About T.G.H. Strehlow

Theodore George Henry Strehlow was born in 1908 at Nthariye (or Hermannsburg) in the traditional homelands of Western Arrernte people. Nthariye became Hermannsburg when German Lutherans started the Finke River Mission there in 1877. Ted, as he came to be known, was the son of Reverend Carl Strehlow, who headed the Mission between 1894 and 1922. He was fourteen years of age when, prompted by his father’s death, he and his mother left the Mission to live in Adelaide. But, after completing his formal education, Strehlow returned to central Australia in 1932 for the first of many stays.

The ‘Journey to Horseshoe Bend‘ is an account of his father’s death.
