Lorimer Fison (1832-1909), clergyman and anthropologist, was born in Suffolk, England. He served with the Australasian Wesleyan Methodist Missionary Society in Fiji from 1863 to 1884. For much of that period he was Principal of the Training Institution for Natives at Navuloa.<BR>This is the first of a series of microfilms The Fison Project was designed to bring together on microfilm the various Fison collections, relating to the Pacific, held in Australian libraries. Fison also wrote extensively about Australian Aboriginal customs but, because of the Bureau's specialised areas of interest, these writings have not been included in the Project. A list of Fison materials in Australia not copied, but made known to the Bureau, has been provided on each reel. See also PMB 1040, 1041, 1042, 1043, 1044.
