Barnett Collection of Photographs

  • ZA HPRA A3311
  • Fundos
  • 1890s-1913

The photographs of Joseph and David Barnett cover the early years of Johannesburg, its buildings and streets; gold mining, mainly on the Witwatersrand, but also as far as Barberton; events like the Jameson Raid in 1895, the Matabele Rebellion in 1896, the Queen Victoria Jubilee in 1897, and the South African War (Anglo Boer War) in 1899-1902; as well as personalities like Cecil Rhodes and Paul Kruger.

Joseph Barnett was born in 1861(?) in Brynmawr, Wales as one of 6 children of Barnett and Ellen Isaacs. He came to Johannesburg around 1888/9, where he started a photographic business in 1895, later joined by his brother David. Both brothers obtained contracts with periodical publications like the illustrated London journal "Black & White". Joseph Barnett died while on holiday in Wales and was buried at his birthplace on the 23 July 1897.
His brother David not only continued with the business Barnett & Co., but also took over Joseph's appointment as special correspondent of "Black and White", taking the photographic work of the brothers further. In the years to follow he contributed many of his pictures of the South African War (1899-1902), published by 'Black and White', and later launched a series of postcards in about 1902. David Barnett died at the age of 90 in 1964.

Albert Lutuli letter

  • ZA HPRA A3408
  • Fundos
  • 15 June 1953

The letter, written by Albert Lutuli, is addressed to Prof ZK Matthews, dated 15 June 1953

Albert Lutuli makes reference to a letter he received from ZK Matthews on 11 June 1953, and assures him that the letter has not been tempered with. He goes on explaining that he learned from the 'White Press' that Matthews had arrived from the U.S.A. He agrees with Matthews that the bans (Lutuli was a banned person at the time) 'have much nuisance value'. Lutuli then attends to suggestions made by Matthews for the commemoration of 'June 26' 1953, saying that he will be issuing a PRESIDENTIAL MESSAGE AND CALL (written in capital letters) for the whole Union. He also promised that the Working Committee has approved the statement, and that it will be distributed to branches, as well as published in the newspapers 'Bantu World', 'Ilanga' and 'Imvo'. He finally passes greetings to all friends at Fort Hare and signs "Yours in the National Service Albert Lutuli President-General, A.N.C".

The 26 June was traditionally observed by the African National Congress and other organisations, because it was on the 26 June 1950 that the Suppression of Communism Act was passed by the South African government, sparking national protest actions. Following this letter, Albert Lutuli issued his public statement for the commemoration of the 26 June 1953. Furthermore, ZK Matthews proposed a national convention in 1953, calling for a Freedom Charter for a democratic South Africa.

Swaziland Oral History Project

  • ZA HPRA A2760
  • Fundos
  • 1967-1993

Oral interviews related to the history of Swaziland and neighbouring regions, mostly taken from oral accounts of events passed down through clans. Mainly in SiSwati with English translations in some cases.

The bulk of the material dates from 1970, collected by Philip Bonner, and 1983, collected by Carolyn Hamilton, working with a number of SiSwati-speaking researchers and assistants. Some of the interviews were undertaken at the behest of Bonner and Hamilton. Others were undertaken at the behest of the Swazi King, Sobhuza II, or by the Swaziland Broadcasting Corporation and others were collected by or given to the Swaziland Oral History Project in the early 1980's.

The description of this collection is mainly based on the written information available on the outside of tapes and tape boxes, microfiche pockets, and on the covers of the 'jotters'. It was not possible to establish the exact content on the tapes, the microfiches and slides.
