Summary

Many aspects of Bennett's career as a marine biologist, including her fieldwork, writings and participation in a number of scientific expeditions are documented. They include correspondence, personal documents, biographical references, field notebooks, typescripts of most of her books, reviews and other cuttings, photographs, reprints, reports and other publications. Particular strengths of the collection are the records of her research on the coasts of eastern Australia, the Great Barrier Reef and Macquarie Island. The earliest papers date from 1944, when Bennett was 35. There are, however, a number of autobiographical and biographical writings that provide information about her family and childhood and her early years in the Department of Zoology at the University of Sydney.
