This series includes the following items:

  1. Page proofs (corrected) of BC Cotton (editor, see SAMA 892), 1966, Aboriginal Man in South and Central Australia: Part I.. The title page states: 'Authors selected by the Board for Anthropological Research, University of Adelaide'; 'Handbook of the Flora and Fauna of South Australia, issued by the South Australian Branch of the British Science Guild Handbooks Committee and published by favour of the Honourable the Premier FH Walsh, esq., MP ' Proofs of the title, contents and acknowledgement pages, preface (by JB Cleland, see AA 60) and illustrations, and the following chapters: 'Physical Characteristics' by Prof. AA Abbie (see AA 688); 'Mental Capacity' by Prof SD Porteus; 'Antiquity of Man in Australia' by PS Hossfeld (see AA 140); 'Population and Tribal Distribution' by EC Black (see AA 31); 'The Ecology of the Aboriginal in South and Central Australia' by JB Cleland; and 'Stone Implements' by TD Campbell (see AA 52) and R Edwards (see AA 83). These items were from Accession 192.
  2. Article titled ' The Board for Anthropological Research' on pages 15 and 16 of the Adelaide University Gazette, May 1957. A subheading states: 'This article was prepared by JB Cleland'. A list of Board expeditions at the end of the article has been annotated by NB Tindale (see AA 338). Also a handwritten draft and typescript of "Board for Anthropological Research Report by NB Tindale, 1956'. This appears to be the report on which the Adelaide University Gazette article is based.

  4. Notes for two lecture series by Clement Antrobus Harris: one series of six lectures titled 'Music of Primitive People and the Ancients', delivered in 1938, and another series of three lectures titled 'Bird Songs', delivered in 1939.
