Series 9 - Overseas travel files


ProvenanceDunn, Peter
Description

This series documents Peter Dunnís work-related travel between 1981 and 1993, through travel documents such as receipts, tickets, schedules, lists, notebooks, correspondence, technical notes and reports, and other records.

In particular, the series contains documentation of: Peter Dunnís 1984, 1986, and 1987 United Nations missions to Iraq and Iran; his travel to South East Asia in 1988 and 1989; and multiple trips to other nations including Sweden, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Malaysia, and Canada. As a consequence of this focus, the series also provides material documentation of Peter Dunnís involvement with various trans-national organisations including the United Nations, UNSCOM, and the Technical Cooperation Program (TTCP).

Additional travel documentation is held elsewhere in the collection. Of particular interest are Peter Dunn's travel notebooks and diaries in Series 5 and documentary albums in Series 10.
