“The forms which the Shakespeare tercentenary memorial are to take in Sydney has been decided on. The first is to take the form of a statue, and provision is to be made for the encouragement of the study of Shakespearean literature, especially among the younger people. Financial provision (to the extent of moneys collected, but not exceeding £3000) for the encouragement of Australian literature and dramatic art is also made.”

Barrier Miner, Broken Hill, NSW, Tuesday 4 February 1913.

Provisions were also made to raise £25,000 for a Shakespeare wing at the Public Library, with a statue or bust, and a hall for dramatic representations. The Colonist, 5 February 1913
