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

  • ZA HPRA AD843B
  • Fondo
  • 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.

South African Institute of Race Relations (SAIRR), Part 2 records

  • ZA HPRA AD843RJ
  • Fondo
  • 1930 - 1947

The "B" box collection was described in Inventory No.10, 'Records of the South African Institute of Race Relations, Part I' published by the University Library in 1981. The Institute's archivist, J. (Jeanette) Curtis, came to the library and re-sorted the "R.J." collection into broad subject categories. Unfortunately, her detention by the government and her resignation from the Institute prevented the task from being completed. In 1981 the papers of Edith Rheinallt Jones (10 boxes) were made into a separate collection and an unpublished inventory of them was compiled. Similarly, in 1984, a separate collection was made of the records of the Joint Council movement (53 boxes), described in Inventory No.12, Records of the Joint Council of Europeans and Africans. The remainder of the "RJ" collection is described by the University Library's Curator of Manuscripts, Anne Cunningham, in this present inventory, No.15.

The "RJ" collection, now comprising 305 boxes, spans the years 1929 to 1954 although there are some items as early as 1921 and as late as 1968. There is a large section on the foundation and work of the Institute covering its policy, publications, membership, administration, activities and regions. The other subject divisions are urban affairs, land, taxation, legislation, franchise, justice, economics, labour, education, Coloured and Indian affairs, social services, World War II, organisations with which the Institute was associated, Protectorates, Africa, church and missionary and J.D. Rheinallt Jones in his personal and senatorial capacity. The collection reflects the Institute's efforts to upgrade the economic, social and political status of Blacks, Coloureds and Indians in South Africa, with particular reference to housing, health, education and franchise, and to improving relations between the different races.

This inventory is dedicated to the late Jeanette Curtis, the SAIRR's archivist, who was responsible for gathering together this collection and ensuring its preservation for researchers.
