South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR), Part 1 records

  • ZA HPRA AD843B
  • Fonds
  • 1908 - 1962

The "B" box collection relates mainly to the period 1930 to 1950, although there are some documents as early as 1926 and some all late as 1961. This inventory boar the title "Part I" as there have been subsequent deposits of the Institute's archives which will be inventoried at a later date.

The "B" box collection has been retained as an entity in accordance with Standard archival practice and the files have been kept in their original order. Many of the files overlap and contain material irrelevant to the subject matter of the file. In view of the extensive use made of the collection over the last ten years by researchers who took references according to the then existing arrangement, it was decided not to re-sort. The present box numbers have been retained, but the files which previously bore an alphabetical notation have now been given a numerical one, e.g. the original 4f now becomes 4.6.

This inventory lists the number of items in each file, mention the names of the principal correspondents, indicates the subject field and itemises anything of particular importance. A brief sketch of the Institute is included and a comprehensive index of all personal names mentioned in the inventory and of selective subject fields has been provided, thus bringing together scattered subjects. The words "Native", "African", "Bantu" and "Non-European" have been used where they were the approved nomenclature of the day.

Subjects covered are the social and economic conditions of Blacks, Coloureds and Indians, with particular reference to education, literacy, land, farm labour, labour relations, housing, the urban Black, health and welfare services, medical training, juvenile delinquency, the liquor problem, discriminatory legislation and penal reform. This collection, covering almost three decades, in of great importance to economic, social and political historians.

Papers of Carien Engelbrecht

  • ZA HPRA A3330
  • Fonds
  • 1994 - 2003

The CASE studies (Community Agency for Social Enquiry) contained in the collection were commissioned by Carien Engelbrecht during her time at the Gauteng Department of Housing and Land Affairs, to track the impact of land release and informal settlement activities. From a policy point of view, the purpose of the CASE study was to show that proactive, positive engagement with land hunger and informal settlement formation was far more effective from an economic and social development perspective than doing nothing. The study tracked the changes over time. The conclusions of the study speak for themselves, as the provision of security of tenure within "official" land release and informal settlement programmes led to rapid economic and social change that was not matched in "illegal" sites. This perspective strongly informed subsequent work in the Department. The Final Report on the Alexandra Renewal Programme (see B9) was compiled by Carien Engelbrecht on her leaving the Department, after she pointed out issues of corruption.
