The civil administration was established at King Edward Point in 1912 and consisted of a magistrate’s office, customs office, radio station, meteorological station and post office.  From these offices, activities at the various whaling stations around the Island were supervised.  There was also a government naturalist stationed there together with the shore base and laboratories for the Discovery Expeditions.
