We value the privacy of individuals, and will only publish material about living individuals that is already publicly available in University of Melbourne publications, including the University of Melbourne website.


This project is based on established archival and historical principles. A key archival principle is to use the original description, titles, and names of organisations, people, places and events to support accessibility. This makes it clear that everyone is talking about the same person or thing and makes finding any resources easier.

In the past the way certain groups of people, events, organisations, and places were described was derogatory and offensive. This kind of unacceptable language is sometimes found in the titles of archival materials, organisations, place names, and event role titles.

There is ongoing debate over whether we should censure such language. For the purposes of this project we have made the decision to replicate original titles. This is so we recognise rather than gloss over the discrimination, hardships, and challenges faced and survived by many people and groups. This language serves as a reflection of past thinking, attitudes, and wrongs and as a testament to the resilience and bravery of many people and groups. We in no way endorse the use of offensive and derogatory language.

In all other aspects of this project we have striven to use inclusive non-derogatory and respectful language. If you find content on this website that you feel is not appropriate please contact the project manager
