Dr. Peter Munster, OAM: A History of Contact and Change in the Goroka Valley, Central Highlands of New Guinea, 1934-1949

Published by Deakin University Library, available online from Deakin University Library internet service, may be a charge for non Deakin members.

This is my PhD thesis on the history of the Goroka Valley. It has been published online and I think it is available for our readers. There may be a charge if you are not a Deakin member.

It includes the story of the first Europeans in the Highlands, the Lutheran missionaries  (1929) and Mick Leahy and Mick Dwyer (1930). I also attempt to briefly outline of the history of the Goroka Valley people prior to European contact. Many people have asked me for a copy of the thesis and now it is available through Deakin’s internet service.
