Pictures of Papua Dr Tim Flannery, Director of the South Australian Museum, travelled to Canberra last December to launch An Anthropologist in Papua: The Photography of FE Williams, 1922--39, co-published by the National Archives and Crawford House Publishing. This handsome book features over 200 black and white images taken by FE Williams, an Australian government anthropologist who devoted 20 years of his life to observing the societies of Papua. The book includes Williams' personal commentary and a substantial introductory essay by social anthropologist Michael Young and historian and curator Julia Clark. Copies of the book can be purchased for $69.95 (plus $5.00 postage) from Publications Sales on (02) 6212 3609, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling into one of our offices. january 2002 memento 15 Our latest guide on sound recordings in our collection should prove a great boon to researchers. Sound Recordings in the National Archives lists and describes the fascinating array of records captured on gramophone disc, tape, cassette and even CD, held in our collection. Dating back to the 1930s, these records include historical broadcasts such as Prime Minister Chifley's declaration of peace in 1945, interviews with famous Australians such as Albert Namatjira, and music by noted Australian composers. Written by Helen Cross and Margaret Chambers, the guide includes an historical overview of sound recordings in Australia by Dr Susan Marsden. At the launch of the guide, ABC radio personality Alex Sloan noted how times had changed since the 1950s when the Department of Immigration broadcast radio advertisements welcoming British migrants to Australia. Guests listened to recordings of the opening ceremony of the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme marked by a blast of exploding gelignite, a description of the Queen's attire as part of the coverage of the Bicentennial ceremony, and Don Bradman's speech on reaching his 100th century.These recordings are all held in our collection, mostly in Sydney. Copies of the guide can be purchased for $10.00 (plus $3.50 postage) by phoning (02) 6212 3609, emailing email@example.com or visiting any of our offices.
