Historical Subject Files Collection

Collection overview

The Historical Subject Files ('C') Collection comprises small individual collections of booklets, pamphlets and other types of published ephemera, with many of the items acquired separately over the years from a variety of sources.

The material is arranged in files according to specific subjects. Many focus on significant political and other events which have occurred in the Illawarra region. Some broader subjects are also included. Many of the files complement collections deposited in the Archives and Manuscripts ('D') Collection.

The size of each collection varies. Some files contain only one or two items, others contain twenty to thirty items.
