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.

In 1997 Papua New Guinea was in the throes of a severe drought with frosts at high altitudes, which severely disrupted food and water supplies. Funded by AusAid, teams of researchers led by the authors, including Papua New Guineans and Papua New Guinea based agriculturalists, conducted field surveys to assess the impact of drought and frost on village food and water supply in all 19 provinces and most districts. The collection includes the field survey data sheets, the Excel database spreadsheet compiled by Joseph Viles, his BA Hons thesis and Bryant Allen's collection of research papers.
The collection was formed during 1969 and 1970 by John R Baker, Economist to the Government of Tonga and resident in the capital of Nukualofa from August 1969 to May 1970. Baker was employed by the British Ministry of Overseas Development and was seconded to the Government of Tonga as an Economist to undertake the preparation and drafting of the Tonga Development Plan 1970 - 1975, which was Tonga's second development plan. He was employed partly on the strength of his having worked in the Solomon Islands in 1964 and 1965 under the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) Scheme. He was the first economist employed by the Tonga Government to work on development planning.

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.

Post World War II the need for education in Papua New Guinea was listed as essential in the Provisional Administration Bill of 1945. In the late 1950s, W C Grove, as Director of Papua New Guinea Education, saw that education for local students was hampered in that the Territory did not have staff to run schools while indigenous teachers were being trained. The 'E' or Emergency Crash Teacher Training Course was implemented. The aim was to recruit Australians, quickly train them and post them to primary schools. The first "E" course began at Malaguna Technical Centre in 1960. On 1 April 1961 the first E course graduates were posted to districts throughout PNG. The courses ended in December 1971. This compilation is in two parts. The first describes the courses, the second is a list of lecturers, trainees who graduated from the three training colleges at Malaguna, Madang and Port Moresby, and selected events.
