ProvenanceDewar Wilson Goode
Description

Material collected by Dewar Goode which illustrates his involvement, interest and contact with arid areas in Australia, and the problems that the land faced, including his approach to consistent, practical and economic land use ethics and his awareness of the need for specialised management.
Our aborigines lived on [the] arid lands for 40,000 years or more and we in less than 200 years are turning it into a desert. I said this in 1935 in my first major article and I have been saying it now for over 50 years. The arid zone has tourist and recreational values which, with proper understanding and management, will last into the indeterminate future. There is no future in pastoralism. The decision is political (Dewar Goode, 'Dewar Goode's Story', Trees and Natural Resources, Vol.30, No.3, p.24).
Newspaper clippings, papers, reports, correspondence, conference papers, brochures, extracts, newsletters, photographs, and draft notes.
