Summary

The collection includes correspondence, memorabilia, photographs, family papers, Letters Patent and a number of personal objects. The first two instalments of material were relatively small and were consequently listed at item level in some detail. However, due to the size of and diverse contents of the larger 1996 and 1997 additions, it was impossible to continue this level of description. As a consequence, the 1996 and 1998 additions have been arranged into groups such as pre-1880 material, Australian politics, Australian High Commissioner, and retirement. The headings reflect the main aspects of Sir George Reid's life and work and accommodate material in the collection pertaining to the wider Reid Family and Dame Flora Reid's own awards and public engagements. The numbering of folders has been continued from the earlier part of the collection.
