Scope and content
Administration and personal/welfare files of the South West District Office (also known as the Southern District office) of the Department of Native Affairs and the Department of Native Welfare. The files are concerned with education, health, housing, employment, welfare, missions and reserves. Gnowangerup, Narrogin, Collie, Katanning, Kojonup, Broomehill, Dumbleyung, Tambellup and Borden are included in this district.
This filing system was discontinued in 1962 for the administrative files and was replaced by a new system that was introduced throughout State offices of the Department of Native Welfare. Record Series No. 47 lists the files from the Southern District under this new system.
However, this filing system was continued for the personal welfare-based files up until 1972.
(Files in this Record Series include records that were previously listed at the State Records Office at reference: AN 1/27, Accession 2817).
