Scope and content
The Fiji Planters’ Journal was published for the Fiji Planters’ Association. The President of the Association was L.J. Hunt; the Secretary and editor of the Journal was H.H. Thiele. The Association had five branches in 1916: Southern Districts Branch, Ba Branch, Labasa Branch, Nadi Branch and Savu Savu Branch. Minutes of regular (monthly) meetings and of executive committee meetings of the Association are recorded in the Journal. It reports in 1917 that a move had been made by the Ba and Labasa Branches to stop publication of the Journal on the grounds that it did not include enough local material. It was noted that apart from members’ subscriptions the Journal received ₤147 in advertising revenue, plus a subsidy of ₤50 each fropm CSR and the Government. The Planters’ Council agreed to continue publication however advertising fell away and, in the last issue it is reported that some Branches of the Association had seceded from the Association over differences of opinion with the executive committee.
The microfilm is made from the set at the Alport Barker Library at the National Archives of Fiji which is comprised of some originals together with photocopies supplied by the Mt. Albert Research Centre, Auckland. Some of the photocopies are poor quality.
