Clare National Trust Historian
Jean Schmaal was born in Glenelg, South Australia, and educated in Adelaide and Port Pirie.
Jean spent many years in Clare and spent many hours on research for the Clare National Trust branch.
She was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for services to the community in 1993 and was a foundation member and the first Life Member of the South Australian Police Historical Society Inc.
Although Jean saw much of her work published in various police journals, she was denied the pleasure of seeing Tales of the Troopers published in book form in 1999. She died in 1998 following a long illness.
