Guide to the papers of the Australian National University Survey of War Memorials
The Australian National University Survey of War Memorials Collection comprises research materials collected and compiled during a national survey of Australian war memorials throughout Australia and in Australian overseas territories and Australian sections of foreign war cemeteries. Professor Kenneth Inglis of the Australian National University, assisted by Jan Brazier, was director of the project, and author of the book Sacred Places: war memorials in the Australian landscape, Miegunyah Press at Melbourne University Press, Carlton, 1998 (subsequent editions in 2005 and 2008), which is based on the project findings. The collection is arranged broadly into two parts: 1. Approximately 1500 individual files, including photographs, survey data, on-site notes made by research assistants, and historical information relating to towns, suburbs and individual significant memorials throughout Australia. The files are arranged alphabetically and numerically at item level, and grouped into larger state-by-state series. Series numbers are assigned to each state. 2. A small component of miscellaneous research data, including analysis of statistics and several folders of photographic slides.
