Research notes

Originally registered as a paddle, but in 1999 identified by Alan West (valuer) as a staff. 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.
