Research notes

March 1978 interview with M J Healy's daughter, Mrs Jennifer Moloney: Everything had a use, like that [artifact] and that is a bowl for mixing up taro and tuberous foods. Dishes 22971 and 22968. These were all given to him by the old man so they must have been used in his family and he had a great affection for dad. [More information in Source file].
