File: Department of Geography

Scope and Content

The Department of Geography was established when H.J. Fleure (1877-1969) was appointed to the chair in 1930. Most of the file comprises routine administrative material, but there are some papers relating to the department's sponsorship of J.A. Taylor's land-use surveys.
