Institutionele geschiedenis

The Historical Papers research archive, situated in the William Cullen Library, was established in 1966. Its first holdings were the Jan Hofmeyr collection and the Gubbins collection as well as manuscripts which were transferred from the Africana section in the William Cullen Library.

It has since become one of the largest and most comprehensive independent archives in Southern Africa. We house over 3300 collections of historical, political and cultural importance, encompass the mid 17th Century to the Present.

Geschiedenis van het archief

The Labour Struggles Project, undertaken by the Historical Papers Research Archive, was funded by the Atlantic Philanthropies Foundation, and ran from 2009 to 2012 . The interviews for the project were conducted by Brown Maaba.

Inhoud en structuur

Bereik en inhoud

The project was designed to complement the existing labour collection housed at Historical Papers and to ensure that South African labour/human rights documentation which is under threat is preserved and made easily accessible. The Project recognised the dynamic potential of oral history and testimony in providing a meaningful context through which the labour movement in South Africa can be documented in its full complexity, and communicated in ways that illuminate the specific historical, political and cultural contexts in which it occurs.
