Scope and content
Giff Johnson is a professional journalist, currently editing The Marshall Islands Journal. He helped form the Micronesia Support Committee in Honolulu in 1975 and edited its journal until the Micronesia Support Committee merged with the Pacific Concerns Resource Centre in 1983.
The Marshall Islands Resource Materials include administrative papers and publications of the Micronesia Support Committee, together with materials gathered for its campaigns in support of political independence in Micronesia and for a nuclear-free and de-militarised Pacific. The papers include: detailed documentation of and commentary on Micronesian political status negotiations, agreements and Compacts, 1969-1984; files on the militarisation of Micronesia, 1973-1986; detailed files documenting the effects of nuclear tests in the Pacific, 1944-1984; and documents on waste dumping, health and education. The research potential of the Resource Materials is strengthened by Giff Johnson's informed selection of press articles from a wide range of newspapers and periodicals.
