Title: Gordon Sweeney Personal Papers
Name: Sweeney, Gordon
My Story: Gordon Sweeney was a missionary and patrol officer who worked extensively in Arnhem Land from the early 1930s. His attached 1939 'Report of Patrol in Junction Bay, Liverpool River and Tomkinson River Areas, July-August 1939' is divided into: 1. Diary of Patrol 2. Notes on each tribal group 3. Other notes 4. Possible station sites and economic resources 5. Notes on the Patrol with suggestions re future patrols 6. Map (please note that there is no map as specified in Report). An original copy of this report is at the National Archives of Australia NAA: A659, 1939/1/15261 Sweeney, Gordon - Patrol report on West Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. Sweeney compiled a 'List of Major Developments in Aboriginal Policy and Welfare 1930-1960' and wrote a report, 'Ref. Aborigines - Policy and Development in the NT 1930-1960' which comprise some of his recollections of this period in Northern Territory Aboriginal Affairs and are also attached to this story.
