Aboriginal Affairs was a small Melbourne information group founded in 1957 by BR Beatty, J Claridge, J Weetman, JB Webb, LM Webb and I Spalding. Spalding was the editor of the periodical 'On Aboriginal Affairs' which set out to inform the Australian public on Aboriginal issues and to encourage readers to think in new ways about these issues. It was produced from 1962 to 1967. The group also produced a series of information papers as supplements to the periodical.
