9781330292402: The Northern D'entrecasteaux (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The Northern D'entrecasteaux

The author of this Report came up to Balliol in 1908, having previously graduated with first-class honours in Classics in his native University of New Zealand. While reading at Oxford for Literae Humaniores he found time to qualify for the Diploma in Anthropology, and obtained it in 1910 in company with Messrs. C. M. Barbeau and W. D. Wallis - thus forming one of a trio of which our nascent School of Anthropology might well be proud. It presently appeared that Mr. Jenness was willing to try his hand at anthropological exploration in the little-known D'Entrecasteaux Group, off south-east New Guinea. Here a sister of his resided with her husband, the Rev. A. Ballantyne, who was in charge of the chief Methodist Mission Station at Bwaidoga on Goodenough Island. The Committee of Anthropology was therefore very glad to help Mr. Jenness to realize this laudable design by appointing him Research Student, and raising a modest fund to cover his travelling expenses and provide certain scientific instruments such as a phonograph and a tintometer.
