Abstract

The Peet Collection contains the library and personal papers of the journalist George Peet (1902-1985) who was on the staff of the Straits Times (Singapore) from 1923-1951.

The collection consists of some 200 books treating the history and society of Singapore and the Malay Peninsula together with 29 files, some correspondence, 10 volumes of news cuttings and a scrapbook. These provide much information about the local history of Malaya and Singapore and the development of their present societies.

The collection was donated to Murdoch University Library by Professor Peter Boyce, George Peet's son-in-law and the Vice-Chancellor of Murdoch University from 1985 -1996.
