Arthur Phillip
Admiral Arthur Phillip RN (11 October 1738 – 31 August 1814) was the first Governor of New South Wales, and founder of the settlement which became Sydney.
After much experience at sea, including command of a ship that was saved in a storm by convicts, Phillip sailed with the First Fleet, as Governor-designate of the proposed British penal colony of New South Wales. In February 1788, he selected its location to be Port Jackson (now Sydney Harbour).
Phillip was a far-sighted governor, who soon saw that New South Wales would need a civil administration and a system for emancipating the convicts. But his plan to bring skilled tradesmen on the voyage had been rejected, and he faced immense problems of labour, discipline and supply. Also his friendly attitude towards the aborigines was sorely tested when they killed his gamekeeper, and he was not able to assert a clear policy about them.
The arrival of the Second and Third Fleets placed new pressures on the scarce local resources, but by the time Phillip sailed home in December 1792, the colony was taking shape, with official land-grants and systematic farming and water-supply.
Phillip retired in 1805, but continued to correspond with his friends in New South Wales and to promote the colony's interests.

Mrs Nartiss
Karina Nartiss
The design representing Science and Industry portrays a young model, an immigrant to Australia, named Karina Nartiss (nee Zars, 09.02.1925 - 1985), who was a native of Latvia.
Karina was born in Daugavpils, February 9, 1925. Since childhood, the girl studied ballet.
After World War II she was in West Germany, land Baden-Wuerttemberg, where she married in 1946. At May 24, 1951 she, along with her daughter, receives the documents for permanent residence in Australia, and at December 8, 1960 she became a citizen of Australia.
The Commonwealth Bank had hired her as a model and at 22 March 1952, photographed her in classical ballet robes, and had her sign over rights to the photographs to the Commonwealth Bank. Curiously she was not informed of the purpose of the photographs, until just prior to the release of the notes in 1954. For her part she was paid 10 Pounds & 10 Shillings, now AUD $21.00. The identity of the person on the reverse of the £10 note was afterwards a mystery, until a couple of years after Karina Nartiss's death in 1985, when her identity was thence made known.
