Series 22 - Royal Melbourne Zoological Gardens, Chairman


ProvenanceAlfred Dunbavin Butcher
Description

In May 1992 Australian Science Archives Project (ASAP) conducted a detailed appraisal survey of the records of the Melbourne Zoo. Over one hundred metres of records were located. The material surveyed included Le Souf family records dating from the 1840s to the 1980s, records of Alfred Dunbavin Butcher deemed personal, records of the Zoological Board of Victoria, and administrative records of the Zoo mostly from the 1950s to the late 1980s. The Butcher and Le Souf records were separated from the Zoo records and transferred to the Public Record Office of Victoria. Control codes for these records are those used by ASAP during appraisal in 1992, and will be found on the records of the Zoo and Le Soufs.
