Abstract Timothy Jones, now retired, is a graduate of the University of Melbourne and was for many years prior to self government the Canberra based Public Service Inspector for the Northern Territory and well known to many Territorians. A close friendship developed between him and Colin Adams, the then Director of Mines who encouraged him to research and write the Territory's mining history. In the course of this research it became evident that recorded history had largely neglected the part played by the Chinese in the development of the Territory and that a number of beliefs about the Chinese had no foundation in fact. The result is an attempt to set the record straight and to trace the erosion of ethnic differences which led to the foundation of Darwin's multiracial society. He has done extensive research and writing on Northern Territory history, his main interests being the history of mining and that of the Chinese. His publications include a book on the history of mining in the Northern Territory as well as entries in the 'Northern Territory Dictionary of Biography' and the 'Journal of Northern Territory History'.
