Canberra University College file register

  • AU ANUA 33
  • Series

The register records file numbers and titles for CUC files (ANUA 42), most of which were subsequently top-numbered or destroyed. There are two versions of the register: 1. Black springback binder: this is a working copy, heavily annotated with many handwritten entries, 2. Cardboard folder: this is a clean copy with all the file titles typed and has a cover sheet: 'Australian National University: School of General Studies: File Index'. Both versions are divided into primary headings from 1. Accounts to 17. Miscellaneous. The primary heading number (eg 2. Buildings and equipment) appears not to have been used as part of the file number, instead the secondary numbers (which appear randomly allocated) and a running number are used to identify files. For example, the first file listed under Buildings and equipment is 9/1. The file register allocates numbers from 8/1 through to 124/2 though not in order which may indicate that there was an earlier file register where the secondary numbers were allocated as required and this register was created to bring similar file titles together. Many file titles are crossed out and a new file number allocated, while others are stamped 'inactive', noted as 'destroyed' or 'PA' (put away). There is a note in the front of volume 1 referring to file (ANUA 53) for the disposal and retention of files.

A note in the front of the volume explains the abbreviations used: A=consigned to Archives, D=destroyed, *=pruned of worthless material or combined file, though some files are marked both A and D. Many entries are crossed out and noted as 'Cancelled' with a new four-part number given.

Album of promotional photographs of the Australian National University

  • AU ANUA 13
  • Series
  • 1945 - 1950

There are four copies of the album: one appears to be a file copy as it includes a list of photograph numbers in the back. Another is annotated to say that it was used in the London Office 1949-1952 (approx.). It is likely that the albums were compiled to show prospective staff members the facilities available at the University and in Canberra, as there are photographs of buildings, homes, churches, schools and recreational facilities. The 41 black and white photographs were taken by the Commonwealth Department of Information and are endorsed with a single number with L prefix so are closely related to a National Archives' series of photographs (CRS A1200).

Mervyn Meggitt's Enga (Papua New Guinea) field materials

  • AU ANUA 581
  • Series
  • c1960

There are two sets of material ( 2 items) in the collection including:
(i) a ringbinder primarily containing a set of genealogical diagrams, and,
(ii) a set of worksheets primarily containing survey plots of garden land use and ownership

There is little or no descriptive documentation attached to either set of records. As far as is known, Meggitt never published the results of this land survey.
The garden land use and ownership survey was conducted in July-September 1960, with tabulation in 1961 (Meggitt 1978: 109-109, and monthly dating on the worksheets).
The survey covers gardens of the Kara clan (at least, and possibly others) at Sari, a location near Wabag, in what was then called the Upper Lai Census Division 12, Enga Province. The genealogical data also appears to be mainly of members of the Kara clan, and was collected and added to between the 1950s and c.1987.
Sari was Meggitt’s main field site between at least 1955 and the 1980s (Meggitt 1957: 161, and personal communication with P Wohlt, who visited Meggitt there in the 1980s-, and T Hays.

NB. These materials, as far as it known, are the only surviving raw field data from Meggitt’s Enga studies, as he destroyed the other materials before his death.

Judy Davis unpublished manuscript for PhD in womens history, Papua New Guinea from 1874 - 1942

  • AU ANUA 512
  • Series
  • c. 2010 - 2012

Draft manuscript for a PhD on the cultural history of women in Papua New Guinea from 1874 to 1942. The work examines the actions of 'white' women in a country with divided administrations and divided cultural histories - women from Australia, China and the relationships between 'white' women and native women. Chapter headings include: Military occupation 1914 - 1921; The phoney colonies (British and German New Guinea); Women on plantations; Ruling societies in Australia and colonial New Guinea; Feminist/women's history; Men and women; Loneliness; Outside women (the wives of white employees in Papua New Guinea). Judy Davis notes that the thesis is 'not a conventional history' as the research was conducted with 'little reference to Official Documents' and traditional research resources. Instead she studied the lives of 'white' women through their own personal stories and experiences and other anecdotal information.
