John Meredith Collection
The John Meredith Collection is housed in the National Library in Canberra, Australia. John Meredith spent half a lifetime travelling the bush with his tape recorder, collecting folksongs and folklore in all parts of Australia, writing books on colonial history and folklore, and managing a small farm in the central Highlands. His vast collection of tapes, containing some 5000 items, along with his field notes, comprise this collection.
This collection was the source of details for a number of the Australian tunes in this archive.
