Extent - 1 box; 17 files and 12 items


'Reports, notes, articles and photographs relating to an expedition to Morocco in 1952, an expedition to Algeria in 1959 and various aspects of work carried out in Libya.'


'The collection has been divided into three series based on geographical subject of the records. The series relate to work carried out at Algeria, Libya and Morocco. Within these series, records have been arranged by format (eg. document-based records and photographs).', As the collection was deposited by both Johns and Smith, it is difficult to identify the creator of individual items, for this reason, documents and photographs have not been arranged by creator. It is highly likely that the vast majority of the material within the collection was created by Smith but the collection has been kept independent of the David J. Smith Papers due to this uncertainty.'

Custodian History

"Deposited to the Society for Libyan Studies Archive by Jeremy Johns and David J. Smith in March, 1989. John Dore's Deposition Record states that the material was in Dr Johns' care from David Smith during the interim period of the establishment of the archive."
