J.M. Hunter was a Queensland politician and Minister for Lands. Richard Ernest Soutter was appointed the manager of the Roma State Farm in 1906, an experimental project concerning the growing of crops likely to be of economic value to the district.

The 1918 French Economic Mission to Australia was conceived as a means of developing bilateral commercial relations, capitalising upon ties forged in war. Ref: Qld State Archives; The Age, 22.7.2017.
