    Aboriginal Treaty Committee (Australia)
    [ Unpublished : 1969-1981 ]

    In 1979, the National Aboriginal Conference decided to seek a treaty between the Australian Government and the Aboriginal people. An Aboriginal Treaty Committee was formed to pursue the reconciliation process. It comprised a number of eminent Australians, many with impressive credentials in working to advance Aboriginal interests over a long period. These included: H.C. Coombs, Judith Wright McKinney, Charles Rowley, W.E.H. Stanner and Diane Barwick. Some of these members were resident in or near Canberra. It was this ACT branch of the Aboriginal Treaty Committee which brought together a collection of literary manuscripts donated by leading Australian writers sympathetic to the treaty cause. The object was that these manuscripts might be sold to raise money to assist the work of the Committee and draw public attention to the cause itself. In the end, the manuscripts were purchased by the National Library of Australia and retained together as a collection. While the intrinsic value of the collection is a literary one, it also serves as a record of the commitment which a number of leading Australian writers made to the cause of an Aboriginal Treaty.

    Antill's musical career in Australia was notable for the interest he took in the culture of Aboriginal peoples as a source for his compositions. While a number of his works utilised Indigenous themes, his most celebrated was Corroboree, composed between 1936 and 1944 and drawing on rhythms which had impressed him during a trip to the La Perouse Aboriginal settlement near Sydney, c.1912. The music for Corroboree was first performed in 1946 by the Sydney Symphony Orchestra conducted by Eugene Goossens at the Sydney Town Hall, and later toured to London and Cincinatti.

    This collection is divided into two parts: Part A (MS 105) covers the period 1853-63 and includes letters and reports from Archer to the Colonial Secretary and other officials in Victoria concerning Victorian records and statistical registration, together with miscellaneous notes and tables; Part B (MS 264) comprises 48 letters covering the period 1847-66 from a number of correspondents, several of them well-known figures in the early history of Victoria. Both sections of the Archer Papers include material relating to Indigenous peoples. Part A (MS 105) contains a manuscript return of the number of Aborigines in the colony [Victoria] from the commencement to 30 June 1841. This document includes estimated population figures for two Victorian communities, the Wawoorang [Woiworung] or 'Yarra tribe' and the Boonoorang [Boonwurrung] or 'Coastal tribe' for the period from 1836 to 1851. The figures show a steady decline in numbers from the time recording commences until the last year represented in the document. Also included is brief information about Aboriginal employment by Europeans in this early period of settlement. The return notes that some Aboriginal men and women are in the service of Europeans including (it is implied) domestic service, sheepwashing and harvesting potatoes.

    Atkins' journal provides a glimpse of relations between the Aboriginal inhabitants of the areas around Sydney, Parramatta and Botany Bay (the Eora and Dharug people) in the foundation years of European settlement in New South Wales. At various points, Atkins documents the following incidents: native attacks on European settlers and the theft of their property; the murder of a convict apparently in revenge for the previous killing of an Aborigine; the killing and burning by Aborigines of one of their own number, a man called Yalloway (as retribution for his fraternisation with the Europeans); the retribution killing of a young Aboriginal woman by relatives of the murdered Yalloway; the role of Botany Bay Aborigines in reporting to the settlement in Sydney the sighting of ships at sea; an attack by Aborigines on a corn store with a consequent loss of Aboriginal life; the beheading of an Aboriginal man and the preservation of his head 'as a present for Dr Hunter'; and the general reputation of the Aborigines for 'treachery' as perceived by Atkins and the European settlers generally.

The reports are in a single hand and are evidently transcriptions collected by Robert Austin, who was appointed as Acting Assistant Surveyor in Western Australia in 1847.

  8. Correspondence of Daisy Bates

    [ Unpublished : 1941-1943 ]

    Letters from the period when Daisy Bates began her work for the Western Australian Government researching the Aboriginal communities ('tribes') of the state. The origins of this project are well documented in this correspondence, particularly in a printed circular letter which announced that 'an attempt is now being made by the Government to compile, whilst the material is still procurable, a short, authentic historical record of the Habits, Customs and Language of the various tribes of the Aboriginal natives of this state'. Two specific objectives were stated: to collect information respecting the habits, customs etc, as well as some of the principal words of the Aborigines; and to collect information respecting marriage laws. It is apparent that Bates sought assistance from other people in Australia working in the same field. One of these was Rev. John Mathew, the Presbyterian minister and anthropologist then living in Melbourne but whose interest in Aboriginal anthropology dated back to the 1860s, when he had become familiar with the Kabi and Wakka peoples in Queensland while working as a stockman on the Burnett River.

    The chief interest of both these collections of letters is the insight they offer into aspects of the life of Daisy Bates and the sense they give of her view of herself and of her work amongst Aborigines in Western Australia. Detail of the Aborigines themselves is not abundant but the letters offer useful contextual information. The letters also offer an insight into the sometimes condescending attitudes of otherwise well-intentioned European humanitarians in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: Bishop Gibney in October 1910 recorded his admiration of how Daisy Bates had interested herself in the 'childlike ways and practices' of what he described as 'a lovable and docile race'.

    In her introduction to Bates' The native tribes of Western Australia, anthropologist Isobel White took care to give a detailed context to the work undertaken by Daisy Bates in gathering material relating to the Western Australian Aboriginal communities in the early years of the twentieth century. She noted the importance of Daisy Bates in doing for Western Australia what other researchers had done in other parts of Australia (W.E. Roth writing about Aborigines in Queensland in the 1890s and 1900s; A.W. Howitt about South Australia in 1904; and Spencer and Gillen about the Northern Territory in 1899 and 1904). In various ways, these studies belatedly made good the omissions of previous years. As White points out, for almost a century after the first British settlement of Australia, knowledge of the social customs, culture and languages of Aborigines grew only slowly, while the Aboriginal population declined dramatically. White notes that meagre descriptions were written by European explorers, travellers, administrative officials, military personnel, settlers and missionaries but none of them attempted any systematic gathering of information or asked 'the right questions' in terms of what the modern anthropologist wished to know about Aboriginal social organisation. In Western Australia, later localised accounts still meant that by the early 1900s, no useful attempt had been made to develop a more comprehensive understanding of the Aboriginal population in what was geographically the largest Australian state. It is in this context that the work of Bates must be viewed.

    Modest notebook written in the form of a journal, containing brief daily entries for several months in 1830, when Batman was a member of the various roving parties of settlers and police who took part in the first of the so-called 'conciliation campaigns' with Tasmanian Aborigines. The journal records a number of Batman's excursions to seek out and apprehend Aboriginal offenders who had attacked settlers and property. An entry for 22 September 1830 provides a short factual account of an Aboriginal attack on an isolated farm which resulted in the murder of one Mr Hooper.

    Bishop Salvado's diaries and letterbooks form a significant part of the Benedictine Abbey of New Norcia collection, which is rich in descriptions of Aboriginal culture and customs and race relations from 1844 to 1908. The papers also cover the period when Salvado advocated the establishment of the Industrial schools Act, 1874 which created a government subsidy for children receiving educational training for missions. He supported a scheme for Aboriginal juvenile offenders to be sent to New Norcia for training, rather than to the harsh Rottnest Island gaol. The collection also includes papers of his successors as Abbotts at the monastery.

    Bennett, Richard
    [ Unpublished : 1893 ]

    Note

    2012-06-13 17:48:19.0

    The third article in this series is dated February 1893 at Warrnambool in Victoria where Bennett presumably lived, but these articles draw on observations which Bennett made on many aspects of Aboriginal life in various parts of Australia from the 1840s onward. In addition, Bennett draws freely on information communicated to him at various times by a range of individuals, including the explorer Ludwig Leichhardt. (A fourth and unrelated geological article is held in the same collection.) Bennett's three articles provide insight into the efforts made by nineteenth-century observers to understand the dynamics of the life and social organisation of Indigenous Australians. Many of his observations were made at first-hand, in various parts of the country, from as early as the 1840s. He also records conversations with explorers. The papers hypothesise on the origins of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, paying particular attention to the long tradition of interaction between the peoples of northern Australia and the Malay fisherman who traditionally sought trepang in Australian waters. His papers offer comment on such matters as social organisation, authority structures, tribal groupings, funeral practices, Aboriginal spirituality, warfare, ceremonies and dance, body decoration and the existence of an artistic tradition. He also offers comment on the physical and temperamental differences between Indigenous groups in various parts of Australia and notes their different ways of responding to the encroachment of European settlement. Variations in diet are noted and some conclusions drawn about the enhanced capacity of some Aboriginal communities, based on more certain supplies of food.

    Bland's papers include some material which relates to his work with Aborigines in Western Australia. The chief items are: a letter dated 4 October 1841 from Peter Brown, Colonial Secretary in Perth, re Bland's appointment as Protector of Aborigines; a letter of appreciation from fellow settlers at York when Bland left the district in 1848 acknowledging 'the very efficient and satisfactory manner in which you discharged your public duties both formerly as resident and latterly as a magistrate, which last is fully proved by the mutual confidence and good feeling which now exist between the settlers and the Aborigines ...'; three letters to Bland from Bishop Rosendo Salvado (21 September 1864, 11 February 1865 and 9 November 1891) concerning the work of the Benedictine Mission at Victoria Plains; and a copy of a letter to J.D. Powles written in London (5 July 1852) in which Bland gives an outline of his career in Australia.

    The Bonner Papers are an important source on the increasing prominence given to Aboriginal affairs as a national issue in the 1970s and 1980s, while providing insight into the life and career of a prominent figure who broke new ground in both the Liberal Party and as the first Aboriginal member of the Australian Parliament. Boxes 9-16 contain files relating specifically to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs in the Parliament during the 1970s. This period coincides with the increased importance attaching to Aboriginal affairs as an issue of national concern in the period following the election of the Whitlam Labor Government in 1972. This is also the period in which the Commonwealth began to show a higher level of commitment to Aboriginal affairs following the referendum of 1967. The Bonner Papers include material on many topics including: compensation, the Racial Discrimination Bill (1975), land rights, black power, Aboriginal criminology, Noonkanbah (Box 13), Aurukun and Mornington Islands (Boxes 14-16) and key issues and 'incidents' which defined more directly engaged participation by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in national politics, and self-determination.

    Amongst the papers of Sir Thomas Brisbane is an 11-page manuscript of the missionary Lancelot Edward Threlkeld entitled The orthography and orthoepy of a dialect of the Aborigines of New South Wales. The manuscript, dated September 1825, is precursor to Threlkeld's Specimens of a dialect, of the Aborigines of New South Wales, being the first attempt to form their Speech into a written language (1827) and, with his later publications, is regarded as a landmark in Aboriginal studies. (The manuscript was dedicated to Sir Thomas Brisbane.)

    Brokensha, Peter
    [ Unpublished : 1997 ]

    Note

    2012-06-14 11:22:55.0

    Peter Brokensha's autobiography provides an account of his decision in mid-life to abandon his conventionally successful career and to begin work which brought him into close association with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. It details the development during the early 1970s of a new awareness and appreciation both in Australia and overseas of the quality, range and diversity of the arts and crafts produced by various Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. The pioneering work carried out by Brokensha and his wife at the Argyle Arts Centre in Sydney, and in the period afterwards when he assumed the role of General Manager of what became the Aboriginal Arts Board of the Australia Council, coincided with a renewed Australian awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander disadvantage following the 1967 Referendum. Brokensha provides an account of his own close association with the Pitjantjatjara people in South Australia. He also gives a picture of the Mornington Island painter Dick Roughsey (Goobalathaldin) and pays tribute to his skills of chairmanship and community advocacy.

    The whole of Series 11 in the Bryant Papers is devoted to Indigenous issues. The core of this series is Bryant's period as Minister for Aboriginal Affairs during the Whitlam Labor Government of 1972-75. While materials from 1972-75 form a large and important part of Series 11, Bryant's interest in Aboriginal affairs was longstanding, and there is a substantial body of other documentation from previous years.

    The Bunbury Papers provide, in the letters written by Richard Hanmer Bunbury to his father (1840-57), a vigorous and generally unattractive account of the conflicts between European settlers and Aboriginal communities, mainly in the Western district of Victoria. The accounts are hostile to the Aborigines and present them consistently as the aggressors against the legitimate interests of the European settlers. They are interesting in representing the view of a highly placed government official.

    James Burney was a member of a landing party at South West Cape, Van Diemen's Land on 9 March 1773. His account notes that the 'first thing we saw when we climbed up was a heap of wood ashes, the remains of a fire which had been kindled there & a great number of Pearl Scollop Shells'. No sighting was made of inhabitants though Burney noted also the existence of a well-defined path leading into the woods and stated his expectation that if followed this 'would probably have led us to some of their Huts'. On 14 March, Burney writes of a second landing, this time at what is now called Storm Bay, again reporting no sighting of 'any of the Inhabitants' while noting also the sighting of fires on the northern side of the Bay which indicated the presence of people. In the area in which the Adventure party moved, however, Burney described the finding of 'Several ... huts & large old Hollow Trees in which [the natives] had lived'. He noted again the existence of a number of well-worn paths, while drawing the conclusion that this particular area had not been inhabited for a considerable period. Burney also conjectured that 'the Natives never Stay long in one place but lead a Wandering Life, travelling along the coast from Bay to Bay to catch fish, which by the great quantities of Shell we saw, must make the chief part of their food'. The huts he described as 'very low & ill-contrived', while expressing the view that they perhaps served only as temporary habitations. In these huts, the Adventure party found '2 or 3 Baskets or Bags made of a very Strong Grass - Some flints and tinder ... & a great Number of Pearl Scollop, Mussel, Lobster, & Crayfish shells which they had roasted'. Burney described the land itself as 'exceeding Pleasant' and the climate as fine, temperate and healthy. He also noted the presence of evergreen trees, standing very thick and close noting that their bark had been stripped off by the Aborigines though for what use he could not say.

    Barry Christophers' papers are a rich source of material in both published and unpublished formats documenting aspects of the Aboriginal Rights movement. Most of the collection is devoted to Aboriginal affairs, although some material relates to Christopher's interests as a medical practitioner.

    This collection was received in two instalments (1989 and 1994), not yet integrated into a single comprehensive arrangement. Related topics are covered in both parts of the collection. Series 1 contains material relating generally to Aboriginal affairs in the period from 1957-74. Specific files relate to Tasmanian Aborigines (1958), Aboriginal communities of the Warburton district in Western Australia (1957-59), and the issue of alcoholism in Aboriginal communities. Records also relate to Robert Tudawali, the actor of Tiwi descent who appeared in the lead role in the film Jedda made in 1954 by Charles Chauvel. Other materials relate to the provision of social services to Aboriginal communities (1965-66), to drug dependence, initiatives in Aboriginal affairs at the national level following the election of the Whitlam Labor government in 1972, and the National Aboriginal Consultative Council.

    Cigler's material collected for an unpublished book covers Aboriginal servicemen in war in general, as well as the particular problems faced by Douglas Grant (c.1885-1951). Grant was one of nearly 300 Indigenous Australians to enlist in the First World War, and the only one to be captured and taken prisoner of war in Germany.

    The papers comprise copies of correspondence seeking information about Douglas Grant obtained from the Australian Red Cross POW file (1918); Cigler's research correspondence on Grant (1978-88); Cigler's handwritten copy of a Sydney morning herald article on the rejection of Aborigines for war service overseas (28 June 1915); copies of articles about Grant from Reveille (31 Jan. 1932) and the Australian Army journal (no. 268, 1973); series of articles 'Things I remember: a prisoner-of-war looks back' by W.C. Groves (Jan. 1932-Feb. 1934); copy of the catalogue of an exhibition of photographs and documents depicting Aboriginal involvement in the Australian Army (State Library of Victoria April-May 1989) including a small paragraph on Grant; newspaper reviews of Gallipoli; and a photocopy of The history of the Thirteenth Battalion AIF by Thomas White (1924).

    In 1965 Mavis Thorpe Clark wrote a biography of Sir Douglas Nicholls, the prominent sportsman, minister and activist who eventually held office (1976-77) as Governor of South Australia, the first Indigenous Australian appointed to a vice-regal post. A children's version of the Nicholls biography appeared under the title The boy from Cumeroogunga (1979). Clark was painstaking in her efforts to give her books a sound basis in historical detail. She was one of a number of Australian writers who drew on the troubled history of relations between Europeans and Aborigines in her books for children. In The brown land was green (reissued as Kammoora in 1990), the Aboriginal character Mundowie addressed the issue of the massacre of Aborigines by European settlers. Aboriginal characters are also depicted in The min-min (1967), Spark of opal (1968) and A stranger came to the mine (1980).

    John Conrick, a pastoral pioneer, took up land in Queensland in the 1870s. At his property Nappermerrie it was claimed that Aborigines enjoyed unfettered rights of access 'as long as they kept within bounds'. Conrick's autobiography provides substantial evidence of an active program of resistance by Aborigines against the advance of white settlement. In the telling of his story, Aborigines are seen as an 'infestation' which must be subdued: Conrick provides much anecdotal evidence of attacks by Aboriginal people on white settlers and on the work of the Native Police as an agent of the colonial government in the imposition of law and order. At the same time he reports on the grudging accommodation which was worked out along the frontier between Aborigines and Europeans, though he never acknowledges that this was achieved at great cost to the Aboriginal people. Conrick expresses his admiration for Aboriginal bushcraft and also for their skills as stockriders.

    Cook's Endeavour Journal is of singular importance in the history of the European exploration and settlement of Australia and provides the first detailed accounts of the land mass known as New Holland. In the context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, it is inevitably a contentious record. Even so, it is the record of one of the world's most important journeys of maritime exploration and an account of discovery by one of the greatest of mariners and navigators. His findings, and the assessment of conditions on the East Coast made by Cook and Joseph Banks, provided the foundation for the later decision by the British Government to establish a penal colony in Australia.

    As its generic name of log implies, this is a record of happenings at sea, of winds and currents and so on, though from time to time brief remarks are made on events on board the ship and of sightings of land. While the log offers no substantive account of the landings made along the east coast, included amongst its entries are brief notes recording the sighting of smoke which provided evidence of human habitation of the country. Read in conjunction with Cook's Endeavour Journal (and the various other logs and journals in other repositories), this log is part of the overall record of the critical first encounter between the British explorers and the Indigenous people of the country which came to be called Australia.

    Durlacher's journal is important for its recognition of the central role played by Aboriginal workers in the economy of the north-west coastal region of Western Australia in the 1870s and 80s. Durlacher believed that 'the chief cause of the prosperity' in the region was 'the cheap labour services of the despised aboriginal black fellow', particularly in sandalwood cutting, pearl-shell diving, beachcombing, boating, shepherding, shearing, stock work and roughriding. The journal contains accounts of Aboriginal workers being paid with tobacco, flour, sugar or handkerchiefs rather than money. Durlacher was also interested in the racial origins of the Aboriginal people, whom he regarded as 'a fast decaying race ... degraded by their intercourse with the white race'. (One illustration by Durlacher is titled 'Native with Jewish cast of countenance'.) Durlacher's anecdotal accounts provide insights into rituals and ways of life of the local people: a section of the journal headed 'Socialism in the wilds' describes the equal sharing of food amongst the men. Lesser anecdotes draw attention to the rewarding of a group of local people by the WA government for rescuing the crew of the Catalpa, wrecked off the north-west coast, and to a notorious Aboriginal man known to Europeans as 'Cockroach', who had murdered his wife, and escaped from custody on Rottnest Island in 1899.

    The diary of Edward, Prince of Wales provides an account of the journey of the Royal train across the Nullarbor, 10-11 July 1920, and presumably offers a reasonably accurate description of the meeting of the Prince and his party with 'some fifty aboriginals' who gathered to perform a 'corroboree' in his honour. The account notes that the Aborigines had come from a camping ground on the edge of the Nullarbor Plain about 80 miles (128 km) to the east but that some of them had come from Fowler's Bay and a few from the Musgrave Ranges about 300 miles (480 km) to the north. Some were said to have only recently come into contact with Europeans. The diary provides a short but quite detailed description of the ceremonial performances, the appearance and decoration of the principal performers and an account of the formal welcome extended to the Royal party, and includes an account of a demonstration of spear and boomerang throwing and of the presentation of gifts to the Prince of Wales and members of his staff.

    This memoir records the Black War of 1830, an action intended to capture and subdue Aborigines in Tasmania, in the face of guerilla-type raids they were making on outlying settlements against encroachment on their traditional lands. Although the Governor Sir George Arthur favoured conciliation, he came under tremendous pressure from white settlers to agree that all the remaining Aborigines, now mostly inhabiting the central and east coast regions, should be rounded up by a cordon of armed men, forced into the Tasman Peninsula and then be removed from the island. The Governor's plans were set out in an order issued 9 September 1830, directing that the Aborigines should be treated with the 'utmost tenderness'. Settlers were directed to place themselves under the orders of their district magistrates for a combined action by soldiers, police, free settlers and freed convicts. The overall command was given to Major Douglas of the 63rd Regiment. The action was planned to commence on 7 October.

    Engel's papers primarily relate to his involvement in the Australian Frontier, Overseas Service Bureau, the World Council of Churches, the Australian Council of Churches, Action for World Development and the Christian Conference of Asia. They include a large sequence of files relating to Aboriginal land rights. In his capacity as Aboriginal Communities Development Adviser for the Board of Ecumenical Mission and Relations of the Presbyterian and Uniting Churches, Engel accumulated a range of material on Aboriginal affairs. Much of the material in the collection deals with Aboriginal land rights, a subject in which Engel was especially interested, and about which he wrote in his book 'Turning land into hope' (1972); but Engel also took an active interest in issues such as the development of improved consultative processes between church missions and Aboriginals, health and welfare, racism, the possibility of an Aboriginal treaty and Aboriginal views of conservation. Series 10 of the Engel Papers brings together a range of papers on these and other topics. While much of the material deals with broad national issues in the arena of Aboriginal affairs, there is also much which is specific to local communities such as Aurukun and Mornington Island. There is also material dealing with the responses of individual states and territories to questions such as land rights see especially Series 10, Folders 18 (Aboriginal affairs in New South Wales, 1977), 19 (Aboriginal and Islander affairs in Queensland, 1976-78), 21 (Aboriginal land rights in the Northern Territory, 1977-78), 27 (Aboriginal land rights in Queensland, 1976-77) and 28 (Queensland Aboriginal legislation, 1971-75).

    Box 3 of Fison's papers contains letters received by him over the years he undertook intensive anthropological research and writing. Much of this material concerns Fison's work on Aboriginal culture and society. Folder 7 contains copies of Fison's letters to A.W. Howitt, 19 May 1873 to 13 August 1879. Folder 9 contains further letters to Howitt, 5 April 1879 to 7 November 1880. Folder 2 contains Fison's correspondence (1896-1907) with the distinguished English social anthropologist Sir James Frazer (1854-1941) and is largely concerned with Aboriginal anthropology. Folder 3 contains extensive notes and tables compiled by Fison relating to Aboriginal kinship and language. Fison's papers offer important insights into the period of the first systematic scientific investigation and analysis of Aboriginal culture and society. The correspondence is especially valuable since it provides a record of an active ongoing discussion between the major pioneer figures of anthropology in Australia at a time when a sustained effort was being made to understand the principles of Aboriginal social structure and organisation. In addition, the collection contains research materials assembled by Fison relating to kinship and language among Aborigines, including a number of completed questionnaires circulated by Howitt and Fison as part of their effort to build up empirical evidence about Aboriginal social organisation. Box 3 contains kinship tables for tribes along the Murray River in South Australia, in the Murray-Darling basin, in the Yorke Peninsula in South Australia, in Gippsland and north-east Victoria, and in the Jervis Bay area of New South Wales.

    The papers of Brian Fitzpatrick provide a useful body of information about the commencement of a campaign by Australian intellectuals to oppose racism and to argue the case for the improvement of the civil rights of Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders.

    Fitzpatrick's biographer Don Watson, speaking of the 1940s, notes that while opposition to censorship had long been a popular cause for Australian intellectuals, opposition to racism had not. (Writers like Katharine Susannah Prichard, Xavier Herbert and those in the Jindyworobak group, and anthropologists like A.P. Elkin were exceptions to the rule.) In 1946, the situation changed when Brian Fitzpatrick and the Australian Council for Civil Liberties were drawn into a movement for human rights for Indigenous people and began to exercise an active role gathering information and documenting abuses of various kinds

    Forbes' letter of advice to Sir Richard Bourke (following John Batman's so-called 'purchase' from the Aboriginal people of large acreages of land in the Port Phillip District of New South Wales) is an interesting statement on the concept of native title as seen by the British Government, and by extension the colonial government in New South Wales. The letter was written in the immediate aftermath of the illegal occupation by John Batman and the Port Phillip Company of lands near present-day Melbourne and Geelong, ostensibly purchased from Aborigines. In his letter, Forbes urges Bourke to issue a proclamation 'defining the true limits of the Colony within your Commission as Governor, declaring that all settlements made on any land within such limits, without the permission of the local government, is illegal and cautioning persons against purchasing any portion of such land from the aboriginal inhabitants under an impression that such purchases will be respected as conferring legal title ...'. Forbes concludes his advice by declaring: 'I deem such a measure of the more importance, as the example of Messrs Batman & Gellibrand will be surely followed by other persons nearer home and much trouble may be occasioned if the Crown seems tacitly to assent to the right of the Savage to sell, and of His Majesty's subjects to buy the land of the Colony.'

In writing the novel, Gare drew on her first-hand observations of life in the Western Australian frontier and the insights gained from her husband's employment as a district officer working with the Native Welfare Department. Gare drew again on her Aboriginal friendships in her collection of short stories Bend to the wind (1978).

    The Gilmore Papers are important as a record of the interest which an influential writer took in Aborigines.

Gilmore's interest in Aboriginal affairs is expressed in her correspondence (see Series VII, Inwards 1957-59). In Series IX are to be found letters to Mary Gilmore by the painter, textile artist and ceramicist Byram Mansell, who drew on Aboriginal myths and legends as a source of inspiration for his work. (The National Library holds a bowl decorated by Mansell with motifs adapted from Aboriginal art, presented to Gilmore on her 91st birthday.) Series IX also includes a copy of a report on Aborigines in Australia prepared in May or June 1957 by the feminist and political campaigner Jessie Street.

    Gow's journal is of interest for its thoughtful observation of Aborigines at a period when European settlement of large tracts of rural Australia was becoming more securely established with obvious detrimental effects on the Indigenous population. The first major reference is made during a stay in the New South Wales country town of Wentworth where he engaged 'a native black to travel with us'. Gow provides details of the negotiations: 'All that I had promised the poor fellow was his rations: I fitted him out with trousers, hat & boots of which he was destitute, also gave him a blanket: He seemed immensely pleased and immediately camped beneath the waggon without further notice'. This engagement was to draw on Aboriginal knowledge of the bush and in particular of sources of safe drinking water. Gow also gives an account of some of the difficulties when Aborigines were taken out of their own familiar territory: having been left alone for a period, Gow's guide confessed to a high level of anxiety in country which he saw as 'too much wild'.

    These two volumes, though in parts illegible and sometimes written in German, provide a detailed record of Friedrich Hagenauer's association with the Ramahyuck and Lake Tyers Aboriginal Mission Stations in Gippsland over a 25 year period from the 1860s until 1885. They also reveal Hagenauer's methods and his personal philosophy as a missionary and administrator. The volumes principally contain copies of Hagenauer's outwards correspondence. Through the letters, and associated reports and memoranda, it is possible to build up a good picture of the progress and development of the missions both as successful agricultural enterprises and as agencies for the propagation of the gospel and for the 'civilising' of what Hagenauer generally referred to as the 'poor Aborigines'. Hagenauer saw his purpose in simple terms and his progress as generally representing a moral improvement over the anarchy which he believed had existed only a few years before. In 1874, he noted: 'it may be of interest to refer to the state of the poor Aborigines at the time of the commencement of this station [Lake Tyers] in 1861. Continual wanderings for the sake of corroborees, or petty quarrels and warfare, which not seldom ended in murder combined with drunkenness and immorality and other abominations were the order of the day among the Blacks at that time. They were rather feared by many solitary residents of the District as being often dangerous to property and even life, and such fears were fully justified.' In 1875, he reported that 'before white people came here this country was inhabited by black people who have sometimes been very wild and dangerous and who lived in the greatest misery, superstition and heathenism. They were considered as almost as wild as the animals of the forest and practised the greatest cruelties.'

    In the years 1977-81, the Noonkanbah dispute in the Kimberley district of Western Australia became a national symbol for the efforts of Indigenous communities to achieve respect and protection of ancestral sacred sites against commercial mineral and oil interests.

    In 1971, the Walmatjarri and Nyikina people walked off Noonkanbah station because of ill-treatment. In 1976, Noonkanbah was bought for the Yangngara community by the Aboriginal Land Fund Commission. The return of the community to Noonkanbah coincided with an exploration boom that saw the pegging of some 500 mineral claims. In 1978, the community discovered that a road was to be bulldozed through a sacred area. A confrontation and demonstration took place and was followed by the decision of the Yangngara to instruct the Aboriginal Legal Service to take action on their behalf to prevent further exploration. The court case which followed saw the approval of the mining claims, but recommended that action be taken under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (WA) to identify and protect places within the mining tenement. In the meantime, CRA Ltd planned to explore for oil, an activity which was not subject to the constraints applying to mineral development. Once again, Aboriginal sacred sites were directly threatened. This time the dispute escalated into an extraordinary battle involving the Noonkanbah people, the miners, the Western Australian and Australian Governments, other Aboriginal groups, the trade union movement, and later the United Nations.

    The Oxford companion to Australian literature (2nd edition, revised 1994) highlights Herbert's anger at the injustice done to Aboriginal people at the hands of European Australians, as reflected in much of his writing and especially his two major books. In Capricornia (1938), a saga set in the Northern Territory from the 1880s to the 1930s, Herbert was particularly moved by the plight of those of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal parents caught between two societies. He returned to this theme in Poor fellow my country (1975), which continues the story of the Northern Territory, in the period 1936-42, and is also a celebration of the land itself. This novel makes a ringing declaration of the importance of the land rights issue in Australian life: 'Until we give back to the black man just a bit of the land that was his, and give it back without provisos ... we shall remain what we have always been so far; a people without integrity, not a nation but a community of thieves.'

    Johnson's papers provide a rare insight into the personalities of a particular Aboriginal group, giving a sense of individual character which is rare in nineteenth-century accounts by European observers. During the period he spent in the Boorowa-Binalong-Kangiara area of New South Wales from 1853 to 1855, he formed a relatively close relationship with the local Aborigines. His diaries trace some of these interactions. At first, he wrote, he 'had no high opinion of them', but as he slowly got to know them he 'began to distinguish their features behind the black mask that had before enveloped them'. The women, in particular,'were not exactly in so inferior condition as I first thought' (November 1853).

    This journal provides a colourful account of Lawrie's journey through the Barrier Reef and into the Torres Strait in 1822-23. The narrative is far from lucid and it is often difficult to identify in precise terms Lawrie's geographic location. The real interest this journal provides is its simplistic nineteenth-century racism, which saw the depiction of Aborigines as savages. Lawrie's narrative is full of such references as 'the savage figures of the dark Aborigines', and 'wild unimaginable horrors'. The journal also asserts the practice of cannibalism, with Lawrie claiming to have seen the remains of a human body 'on which these cannibals had been feasting', but in the overall context, the report is hardly an objective one and the details of location are vague. Also vague is the garbled account provided by Lawrie of his desecration of some form of sacred site and his disturbance of a burial ground: 'Having now surveyed this savage sanctuary of the wild Aborigines I shouldered two of the most curious looking figures that adorned the graves and ... made for our boat'. Again, no details of location are provided.

    The Mabo Papers are a valuable record of the life of one of the most prominent and celebrated Indigenous activists. In the so-called 'Mabo Case' (Mabo and others v. Queensland (no.2) (1992)) plaintiffs claimed that their people had occupied their land 'since time immemorial'. In doing so, they demonstrated the cultural importance they attached to the land and offered evidence of a continuing system of land ownership. After extensive litigation, the High Court of Australia handed down a decision on 3 June 1992 which rejected the doctrine of terra nullius (which had held that Australia was legally unoccupied at the time of European settlement). An outcome of this land rights case was a succession of Mabo-style land claims by other Indigenous communities. By December 1993, the Keating Labor Government introduced federal native title legislation. While papers relating to the 'Mabo Case' are of primary importance, the collection as a whole also offers valuable documentation of Mabo's own life and interests and charts the emergence of an increasingly effective and sophisticated campaign by Indigenous peoples to control their own affairs.

    The Mathews Papers are an important source for research into the history, language, customs and social and kinship organisation of Aboriginal society across a diverse geographic area. As a surveyor, Mathews had an opportunity to observe Aboriginal life and customs in areas of Australia then rapidly opening to settlement. His investigations in the field produced research data on linguistics, social structure, ceremonial life, customs and art. He travelled widely to interview informants and maintained an extensive correspondence with people in many parts of Australia as well as overseas. Mathews took special care wherever possible to ascertain his facts from Aboriginal people themselves. Although Mathews was not trained professionally as an anthropologist, his reports provide rare records of Aborigines for large areas of northern New South Wales. He also studied and wrote on the Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory and Central Australia, frequently drawing on material supplied to him by his many correspondents (over 500 letters).

    This collection provides a richly detailed source recording the history of the Aboriginal Mission Station, Maloga, (established by Daniel Matthews and members of his family), near Echuca on the Murray River during the last quarter of the nineteenth century. It also includes material relating to the Manunka Mission, which Matthews established with his wife at Mannum in South Australia in 1899. In addition to the diaries kept by Matthews, the collection includes a near-complete set of the published reports of the Maloga Mission together with published reports for the Manunka Mission and a large collection of press cuttings on Aboriginal affairs in Australia collected over many years by Daniel Matthews. The focus of many of these reports is the Maloga Mission or Matthews himself, but they include also news on many other Aboriginal missions and include editorials of various kinds from a range of publications. These report in detail on Aboriginal questions, usually with sympathy and a high level of criticism of the ignorance and brutality of settlers' behaviour against the Aborigines. There are also articles which offer substantial contemporary criticism of the Native Police. These cuttings are also a valuable source of anecdotal reference and reportage from many parts of Australia concerning issues of Aboriginal survival, myths, legends and related issues: apart from the detailed record they provide of a quarter of a century's reporting of Aboriginal issues in the Australian press, the cuttings provide some insight into Matthews' own viewpoint, for example his declaration that: 'In no other country perhaps was ever the native driven from his heritage with so much disregard for his rights and claims'.

    Roger Milliss is one of a group of writers and historians who have contributed to the exposure and retelling of the encounters between Aboriginal and white settler communities in nineteenth-century Australia in ways which reveal details frequently concealed or glossed over in some more optimistic accounts. Among Milliss' Papers are ones relating to two publications detailing encounters between Aboriginal communities and white settlers in the nineteenth century: The Wallabadah Manuscript ... (1980) and Waterloo Creek ... (1992). Papers dealing with the Wallabadah project include typescripts of text, photocopies, research material and correspondence (Series 7). Series 9 deals with the Waterloo Creek study and includes drafts, cuttings, typescripts and research material. Correspondents include Lyndall Ryan and Humphrey McQueen, two historians who have taken a special interest in race relations in Australia in the nineteenth century. The central subject of Waterloo Creek: the Australia Day massacre of 1838, George Gipps and the British conquest of New South Wales (1992) is the massacre which took place about 60 kilometres south-west of Moree near Snodgrass Lagoon, when up to 300 Aborigines were killed by a force led by Major J.W. Nunn. Milliss' book offers what has been described as a meticulously researched and encyclopaedic treatment of related topics including the governorship of Sir George Gipps, anthropological evidence concerning the Kamilaroi and other Aboriginal people in New South Wales, the political influence and manipulation of white settlers of the period and the career on the mainland of George Augustus Robinson who had worked previously with the Tasmanian Aborigines.

    Written by Nonie Morris at the age of 90 (her birth date is not specified), the memoirs are a lively account of her experiences in outback Australia in the middle years of the twentieth century, including details of her relations with the local Aboriginal people of the Daly River region (NT). The account given is impliedly critical of many aspects of the European administration of Aborigines. Amongst other things, Morris notes Aboriginal apprehension at the prospect of admission to Darwin Hospital, for fear that if they died there they might be buried away from their traditional country. She also notes the devastating impact on the local community of an influenza epidemic. In 1986, after the sale of her property Woolianna, she notes: 'I got on well with the blacks ... but they had to know you well before they trusted you. They had been treated so badly, that they were on the lookout for anything wrong. They are a very lovable people and very loyal, but first of all they need to be treated in the right way, because they have had such a lot of bad treatment and lies told to them in the past ...'

    Notwithstanding the substantial dealings which Terence Murray had with Aborigines during his pastoral career in New South Wales, the family papers held in the National Library contain only fleeting references to Aboriginal people. There is, however one substantial record in the collection: Terence Murray's diary of the 18-day overland journey he made to Melbourne in February 1841, records his encounter in the high country near Tumbarumba with a large group of Aborigines armed with spears for a tribal war. Murray conversed at length with this party (leading his later biographer to conjecture that he must have spoken to the Aborigines in their own tongue). Murray's diary survives as a contemporary record of tensions which existed between opposing tribes in the area stretching from Goulburn to the Snowy Mountains. Amongst other named individuals, Murray refers to a much-feared warrior, 'Hongkong', a native of the Queanbeyan area. (Details of Hongkong and of his subsequent death and the fate of his skull souvenired from his grave at Lanyon near Tharwa are given in the autobiography of Samuel Shumack).

    Judith Murray-Prior's thesis studies the role of white women settlers in race relations between Europeans and Aborigines in the New England pastoral district and north coast of New South Wales between 1820 and 1890. She argues that: 'Women played a role in race relations in the Australian colonies similar to that in other countries. This role was to increase fear and tension between the races and to hinder interracial harmony and understanding.' The thesis emphasises attitudes of white women toward Aborigines in the Hunter Valley, mid-north coast, Clarence and Richmond Rivers valleys and the New England Tableland district. Murray-Prior draws on public and private primary source materials, such as local newspapers and books, as well as diaries, letters and reminiscences.

    Together with the papers of Edward Koiki Mabo, the Perkins Papers are the largest and most important relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs in the custody of the National Library of Australia. Perkins was one of the most prominent Aborigines and for many years exercised significant influence on the development of Indigenous policy at a national level. He also served as an important role model for other Indigenous Australians.

    Although not highly detailed in its references to the Aboriginal population of Central Australia, Plowman's papers nevertheless contain some valuable observations and commentary on the communities Plowman came in contact with during the foundation years of the Australian Inland Mission. The most useful comments are scattered through the letters to his mother and to his fiancee. For example, on 18 July 1913 in an account of an excursion along the Birdsville Track he writes of a visit to the Killalpaninna Mission Station run by the Lutheran Church, giving a description of an evening church service conducted 'in the native tongue'. He also writes of an evening show of lantern slides which gave the Aboriginal community considerable amusement. In a letter of 28 August 1913, he writes of a service being conducted for the Aboriginal congregation in the Dieri (Diyari) language. Later letters refer to the intermarrying of Afghans with Aboriginal women, the horseriding skills of Aboriginal stockmen, the use of Aboriginal women as domestic servants and the generally peaceable nature of the Aboriginal population.

    Peter Read has been immersed in the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples for many years. His papers fall into two distinct parts. The first relates to his biography of Charles Perkins, and consists of correspondence, press cuttings, reviews, photographs, drafts of the biography and related papers. The second part comprises papers relating to the book Long time, olden time ... which Read wrote in collaboration with his wife, Jay Read, based on Aboriginal accounts of Northern Territory history. Although his papers relating to his research and writing of the biography of Charles Perkins are closed until 2002, this material will complement the large holding of Perkins' own papers, which are also held in the National Library of Australia. Read has retained successive drafts of the Perkins biography, several of which contain annotations and suggested amendments by Charles Perkins and his wife Eileen. The papers also include Read's initial letter to Perkins proposing the biography (6 April 1986), together with Perkins' response. The papers contain a folder of submissions and proposals by Perkins to the federal Department of Aboriginal Affairs in the period 1974-78, many of them with comments and annotations by Departmental officials. There is also a folder of press and magazine cuttings relating to Perkins and collected mainly by him in the period 1961-90 and several unpublished speeches written and delivered by Charles Perkins.

    Among Refshauge's papers is material documenting the establishment of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra in 1974 and the efforts of the Australian Government to secure its removal. Box 10 includes: a letter by Garry Foley (Official Spokesman, Organisation for Aboriginal Unity), November 1974, which refers to the establishment of the Canberra Aboriginal Mission on the lawns of Parliament House to highlight the physical realities of Aboriginal housing in isolated areas; press statements of various kinds issued by Goverment Ministers and Opposition members of parliament; student protest leaflets; sheets of protest poetry (including the texts 'The Gurindji blues' and 'The tribal land'); and a variety of other protest literature. Of interest is a petition 'authorised by Richard Refshauge, President of the ANU Students' Association' which expresses disgust 'with the cowardly action exhibited this morning by the Government ... in having the Aboriginal Embassy removed by over 100 policemen'. The petition also notes that the 'contempt shown by the Government to the Aboriginal people as a whole after years of paternalistic policies is in direct contravention to the will of the vast majority of Australians'. Also amongst the protest literature is a leaflet which refers to a film, Ningla a-na (Hungry for our land) by Alessandro Cavadini, on the Aboriginal land rights campaign, which highlighted the repression of the Tent Embassy by the Australian Government.

    Within the broad-ranging Rischbieth Papers, Series 12 contains a large amount of material on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues. The collection has more than 600 items, mainly letters but also clippings and ephemeral material such as flyers and leaflets relating to Aboriginal affairs, covering the years from 1927 to 1958 and organised into 18 folders and one packet. All the clippings are dated. There are also copies of official reports, the earliest being the Report of the 1904 Royal Commission on the Condition of the Natives, West Australia. Rischbieth entered into correspondence with a large number of government bodies, organisations and individuals on Aboriginal welfare, rationing, relief stations, education, living conditions, rights of Aboriginal women, segregation, individuals of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal parents, reserves, employment, the cattle industry, the 1958 imprisonment of Albert Namatjira, health and race relations in general. Correspondents include Premiers and Prime Ministers as well as official Protectors of Aborigines, missionaries, women's organisations, education groups, the Aborigines Protection League and a range of other groups such as the British Commonwealth League. The collection brings a sympathetic white woman's perspective to Aboriginal affairs between 1927 and 1958 and exposes conditions endured by Aboriginal people in outback and rural areas.

    In his autobiography, Roland Robinson remarked that he had 'received more comfort, more enlightenment, more religion and more poetry ... from the Aborigines, than from any of the wise books of the white man'. The small body of his papers held in the National Library reflects his strong interest in Aboriginal culture and spirituality. Especially interesting are the eight volumes of notebooks in which he recorded details of his conversations with a number of named Aborigines, mainly in the Northern Territory, who passed on to him stories and legends, songs and poetry which Robinson later included in his books. The notebooks, while clearly intended as rough working tools, nevertheless provide a strong sense of the character and personality of individual informants. It was Robinson's practice to provide at the head of each entry the tribal name of his informant and the individual's tribal affiliation.

    Dr Andrew Ross writes of the conflicts between Aboriginal communities, drawing on anecdote and reportage accumulated by himself and his brother from the 1840s onwards. The topic of conflict between Aboriginal communities was perennially interesting to European settlers throughout the nineteenth century. Ross' interest seems also to have been part of a broader antiquarian enquiry. It is unclear whether these notes were written as the basis of a lecture or for publication.

    Note

    2012-06-16 13:19:01.0

    Sandeman's narrative contains a number of references to Aborigines in bush life in outback Queensland (including Ipswich, Charleville, Augathalia, Blackall and the Carnarvon Ranges) in the last quarter of the nineteenth century. (The journal's incidents are undated, and we must presume it covers a period of perhaps 10 years in the 1870s, written after the events described.) In keeping with the rest of the journal, his tone is generally quite neutral even when referring to a number of violent events. The narrative gives a sense of a continuing Aboriginal presence along the frontier of European settlement, employed on the stations, and as Aboriginal trackers and troopers or native policemen. The journal records some more detailed observations, although lacking in anthropological precision. Examples include Sandeman's account of his visit to 'the blacks' camp situated in a clump of Gidgee scrub discernible from the homestead by faint rings of smoke ... Here were many humpies constructed of sheets of bark and a few sheets of corrugated iron'. This account describes Aborigines making domestic fires and refers also to their eating habits: 'dilly bags hung near their gunyahs, some filled with emu flesh and garbage from the slaughter yard. Most of the tribe were sleeping off the effects of a big emu feast. Although the Aboriginals are said to possess the stomachs of ostriches, they can eat very little of the emu, which is excessively strong in flavour'. At this same encounter, Sandeman mentions that he was escorted by 'King Billy' proudly wearing a brass plate with his name inscribed'.

    The main value of the Setzler collection lies in the three typescript volumes of diaries he compiled during the 1948 American-Australian scientific expedition to Arnhem Land, sponsored by the National Geographic Society, the Smithsonian Institute and the Australian government. The expedition aimed to determine how Aborigines lived in their tropical environment, to study and collect objects of Aboriginal culture, make nutritional studies of the Aborigines' diets, and establish a prehistoric chronology. Setzler described his diaries as 'an accurate day to day account of the activities', but they are personal rather than scientific. (The detailed scientific notebooks, also maintained by Setzler, were not deposited as part of his collection.) A detailed overview of the expedition, with lavish illustrations, is found in Charles Mountford's report published in the National geographic magazine, December, 1949, pp.745-782, a copy of which is among the Setzler Papers. Setzler's own detailed report, published as an 80-page reprint from 'The records of the American-Australian Scientific Expedition to Arnhem Land', vol. 2, 1960 is also among these papers.

    Some limited attention in this vast document is devoted to recalling the lives of the original Ngunnawal/Ngunawal inhabitants of the Canberra district. Shumack looked on the Ngunnawal/Ngunawal with considerable sympathy and understanding and acknowledged that with the coming of the Europeans, great harm had been done to them. The narrative contains a number of fleeting references to the presence of Aborigines as an integral part of the local community, generally in the context of domestic service, tracking, or describing the skill of Aborigines as cricket players, the use of native plants as a source of food, and Aborigines skills and methods as fishermen. Shumack also notes Aboriginal susceptibility to disease, especially measles.

    The painter William Strutt was one of many nineteenth-century writers and artists who pursued an interest in the theme of children lost in the Australian bush. Between 1850 and 1862 he had travelled and sketched widely in Australia, and back in England, he chose the 'lost children theme' for a painting he exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1865. This painting was based on the true story of Isaac, Jane and Frank Duff who became lost in the Victorian bush in 1864 and, with the assistance of Aboriginal trackers, were found alive nine days later. Strutt returned to the same theme in 1876, when he began to write and prepare illustrations for a fictionalised account. (In this, he renamed the children Roderick, Bella and David Duncan.) His version of the story describes their adventures and the frantic efforts of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal trackers to find them. Strutt completed his manuscript in 1901 and eventually sold the story to a magazine in 1906, but it remained unpublished until issued by the National Library of Australia in 1989. (In the late 1950s, the National Library had acquired a number of Strutt's preliminary sketches for the story and in 1967 had purchased the original manuscript and completed drawings.)

    Strutt's autobiography contains a brief but informative reference to the Aborigines who were employed as native troopers during the gold rushes at Ballarat in the early 1850s. He claims they were initially the only mounted police presence on the Ballarat diggings. The Aboriginal police were disbanded, he says, because of their inability to read diggers' licences and because they were 'eventually all murdered by their fellow blacks'. (Halstead Press edition, 1958, vol. 1, pp.31-32). Strutt praises their abilities as trackers and horsemen.

    James Templer's journal contains a spirited and lively account of his Australian travels in the period 1839-42. During the latter part of 1839, when he stayed with the family of Phillip Parker King at Tahlee near Port Stephens in New South Wales, he came into close contact with the local Aborigines. At this early period, when settlement was making further inroads into areas traditionally occupied by the Aborigines and when great tension existed in the more remote areas of the colony, Templer's journal communicates a real interest in Aboriginal custom and ceremonies. On a number of occasions he records as a matter of fact the employment of Aborigines as crewmen on local boats and ferries. He also gives a detailed account of a ceremony ('corroboree') presented apparently as an exhibition for the entertainment of visitors. This account includes details of body painting in preparation for the event but finishes with the observation that the performance probably lacked the liveliness and authenticity it might have when conducted out of sight of European spectators. Towards the end of Templer's stay at Port Stephens, he reports also the details of a Christmas feast given to the Aborigines at Carrington Flat. This comprised 'a whole Bullock (roasted however in 4 quarters), a couple of large plum puddings, oceans of tea and mountains of damper'.

    Amongst the special subject files in the Turner Papers are a number (Boxes 13 to 16) dealing with the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the period after European settlement. Much of the material Turner accumulated was derived from a critical reading of legislation in various Australian jurisdictions, from other contemporary sources and from secondary sources. The files include a large quantity of press cuttings, pamphlets, newsletters of various Aboriginal organisations and other ephemeral publications. Two substantial papers written by Turner are included in the collection. In 'Anthropology and government 1911-1939', Turner considers the effect of growing anthropological knowledge and of the political pressure initiated by or associated with anthropologists on the formation of Commonwealth policy in relation to Aborigines, from the period of the takeover of the Northern Territory by the Commonwealth on 1 January 1911 to the important statement by John McEwen (then Minister of the Interior), in February 1939. The second paper, 'The framework for a history of white-Aboriginal relations' was prepared for delivery to the Australian and New Zealand Association for the Advancement of Science (ANZAAS) in Adelaide in 1964. This paper offers a lucid survey of the major phases of administrative policy towards Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from 1788 to the 1960s and foreshadows the need for a reappraisal of non-Indigenous-Indigenous history from the Indigenous perspective. Turner's ANZAAS paper serves as a valuable line of demarcation in the writing and interpretation of Indigenous history. In the last three decades, many Indigenous people began to publish their own stories and history.

    A number of documents in this collection concern atrocities involving Tasmanian Aborigines in the period immediately before the notorious Black War of 1830. The documents include inquests into the deaths of white settlers allegedly murdered in attacks on outlying properties by Aborigines, together with reports and sworn statements of brutal attacks by whites on Aboriginal people, e.g. see report of George Pyke, 6 January 1825, who witnessed the rape of an Aboriginal woman on the hill behind Government House in Hobart, and who also witnessed 'four or five black Native Women laying upon the ground and white men laying upon them. There were two or three soldiers near these last mentioned people. They did not interfere with them in my presence ...'

    This notebook contains a number of reports submitted to Edward Curr which detail the results of early survey expiditions into the Tasmanian interior. In 1826, Edward Curr arrived in Hobart ready to pursue his responsibilities as agent for the Van Diemen's Land Company. His first task was to arrange for surveys to be carried out in the north of the colony to identify lands suitable for the development of large-scale sheep farming. Although Circular Head was selected as the company's base, Curr ordered his surveyors inland to carry out more detailed exploration of lands which might be suitable for occupation and agricultural development. Curr and his surveyors quickly became aware that much of the country was wild and heavily timbered and that their task was an immensely difficult one. Some of the reports expressed in graphic detail the huge physical task faced by the survey parties in their efforts to open up the very rugged terrain of north-west Tasmania.

    The Vroland Papers contain a rich body of material concerning the educational and social justice campaigns conducted by Anton Vroland and his wife Anna for and on behalf of Aboriginal men and women, mainly in the 1940s and 1950s. Their campaigns were conducted mainly in Victoria, but the couple also took a broader interest in Aboriginal affairs at the national level. Anton Vroland was particularly interested in the work of the Mount Margaret Mission School in Western Australia: he visited this school in 1937 and was generous in his support of its Principal, Mary Montgomerie Bennett.

    Frederick Walker's journal mainly contains information about distances travelled, temperatures, condition of horses and water supplies, however the Indigenous people are a constant factor in the journal, which is rich in its accounts of Aboriginal resistance. Walker took a collection of tomahawks with him, in anticipation of the need to present gifts to the local people. Jimmy Cargara is the main Aborigine mentioned. On pp.23-24, an elderly woman informs Walker, through the interpretation of Cargara, that she had seen men like him in the region 'many years ago'. The expedition also frequently relied on Aborigines for advice as to locations of water.

    Through a series of brief diary entries, this volume offers an unusual insight into the life and internal administration of a nineteenth-century Aboriginal mission station. Among other matters it records births, deaths and marriages (usually naming, in the case of marriages, the parties concerned, the name of the officiating clergyman and occasionally some more personal details). Incorporated into the volume are copies of letters written following periodic inspections of the mission by representatives of the Aborigines Protection Association. Managers and overseers who made entries in the diary are: Messrs Clarke, Smith, Whalley, Pridham and Harris. It dates from the period when the Aborigines Protection Board had taken over the control of Warangesda from the Rev. J.B. Gribble. The diary also provides some understanding of the perceived 'disciplinary problems'. Amongst other matters, details are given of prayer services, shearing seasons, white men plying Aborigines with liquor, and visits of inspection. The diary appears to have been kept as a day book, with entries written in several different hands and varying degrees of detail over a 10-year period.

    Included amongst the Watson Papers are a number of letters he wrote from Western Australia during the period of his membership of the Radcliffe-Brown scientific expedition of 1910, when he travelled to the Upper Murchison, Bernier and Dorre Islands and the Gascoyne. These letters are useful for the comments they make on A.R. Radcliffe-Brown and Daisy Bates and on the tensions which developed between these two formidable personalities. The letters also provide some insights into the interaction of the expedition party with the various Aboriginal communities and the difficulties experienced in establishing trust. Grant Watson notes that already the Aboriginal communities of the north-west were subject to police raids and to visits by public health officials seeking to round up syphilis sufferers for treatment. These letters are located in Box 4 (Folder 16). The collection also includes photographs of Grant Watson at the time of the expedition, portraits of Radcliffe-Brown and a photograph of one of the expedition's Western Australian campsites. (Two of these photographs have been reproduced in Daisy Bates' The native tribes of Western Australia, edited by Isobel White, Canberra, National Library of Australia, 1985.)
