E C O R D S T E R R I T O R YR6 March 2002 GEORGE Our condolences go to the family and friends of George Brown who passed away 8 January, aged 72, after suffering a stroke six days earlier. George was born in Sydney in 1929 and came to Darwin in 1968 to work in the Botanic Gardens. He was one of Darwins longest-serving mayors (1992-2002) and one of its great characters. Georges memory will be upheld through several collections at NTAS, including an oral history interview recorded in 1990. Tales From The South Pacific The NTAS customer base spread beyond Territory shores in September when the NT government was called on for assistance and advice in establishing the National Archives of Samoa. The NTAS Director, Greg Coleman, took up the challenge and spent three weeks working with staff of the Ministry of Youth, Sports and Culture at Apia. Greg found that Samoa and the Territory shared much in common when considering the establishment of an archives service including similar climate, geography and population/customer base. Greg worked with Museums and Archives Offi cer, Ulrike Hertel, on preparing draft legislation and a design brief for a National Archives building. Time was also spent processing archives collections and discussing storage arrangements, coordination of agency records management and community access arrangements. While the Samoan government is enthusiastic about the establishment of a National Archives service, funding is the key issue for the future of the Archives, and it is hoped that resources can be allocated soon.
