Research notes

The Foundation Donation comprises the items from L. P. Winterbotham's personal collection, which were donated to the University of Queensland in 1948 and form the basis of the Anthropology Museum.

'I secured all they had (for sale) when I went to the Science Congress in Sydney - no notes with any of them' [ref. Winterbotham, ABM source file].
