New Zealand Workers' Educational Association, Otago Centre, lectures The Pacific, its peoples and problems.

Identifier: MSS &-Archives-A-251
Cyclostyled outlines for a set of lectures on the Pacific region and its problems. The notes are undated but the circumstances described are those of the 1930's. The lectures were to consider current political and social conditions in countries bordering on the Pacific (Russia, China, Japan, U.S.A.) and their impact on the region in terms of possible future conflict about "trade, investment, immigration". The set includes a general lecture entitled "Race Problems", which reveals the 30's preoccupation with racial mixing versus racial purity. The tutor for the course is named as Lloyd Ross, M.A.
