A lawyer must also necessarily have a wide knowledge of human nature and an appreciation of varied ways of thought and action. Seligmann, in his valuable paper “A Classification of the Natives of British New Guinea” (Journ. Williamson so frequently refers, and in which this classification is maintained, and these two groups together with the Papuans, are termed Papuasians.

It was with such an equipment and fortified by extensive reading in Ethnology, that Mr. Proof of his powers of observation will be found in the excellent descriptions of objects of material culture with which he has presented us. The Motu stock of the Western Papuo-Melanesians have extended their dispersal as far as the Mekeo district, where they came into contact with other peoples.

I think this can be no longer denied, and the observations made by German ethnologists show that the race in a more or less modified state is widely spread. Williamson, whose work in New Guinea was contemporaneous with that of the Netherlands New Guinea expedition, adduces evidence that this is also the case in British territory.

It is worth recalling that de Quatrefages and Hamy (Crania Ethnica, 1882, pp. of the Reports of the Cambridge Expedition to Torres Straits. Williamson has shown strong evidence that the Mafulu and probably other adjacent mountain tribes are essentially a pygmy—that is to say a Negrito—people who have been modified to some extent by Papuan and possibly Papuo-Melanesian influence, both physical and cultural.

Perhaps I may be permitted in this place to make a few personal remarks. Williamson was formerly a solicitor, and always had a great longing to see something of savage life, but it was not till about four years ago that he saw his way to attempting the realisation of this desire by an expedition to Melanesia.

Williamson Release Date: March 4, 2006 [EBook #17910] Last updated: January 27, 2009 Language: English Character set encoding: ISO-8859-1 *** START OF THIS PROJECT GUTENBERG EBOOK THE MAFULU *** Produced by Jeroen Hellingman and the Online Distributed Proofreading Team at This book is the outcome of an expedition to British New Guinea in 1910, in which, after a short stay among the people of some of the western Solomon Islands, including those of that old centre of the head hunters, the Rubiana lagoon, and a preparatory and instructive journey in New Guinea among the large villages of the Mekeo district, I struck across country by a little known route, via Lapeka, to Ido-Ido and on to Dilava, and thus passed by way of further preparation through the Kuni country, and ultimately reached the district of the Mafulu villages, of whose people very little was known, and which was therefore the mecca of my pilgrimage. He made my acquaintance in the summer of 1908, and seeing that he was so keenly interested, I lent him a number of books and all my notes on Melanesia; by the help of these and by the study of other books he gained a good knowledge of the ethnology of that area.

And finally, when having at some risk prolonged my stay at Mafulu until those enquiries were completed, I was at last compelled by the serious state of my health to beat a retreat, and be carried down to the coast, he undertook to do the whole of my photographing and physical measurements, and the care and skill with which he did so are evidenced by the results as disclosed in this book.1 I must also add that the frontispiece and plates 17, 67, 68, 69 and 70 are taken from previous photographs which Father Clauser kindly placed at my disposal. A few students have been lawyers, but so far as I am aware Mr. 246, 315) corroborated these views and designated the two groups of “Melanesians” as the Eastern and Western Papuo-Melanesians.

My remembrance of His Lordship the Bishop, and of the Reverend Fathers and the Brothers of the Mission will ever be one of affectionate personal regard, and of admiration of the spirit of heroic self-sacrifice which impels them to submit cheerfully to the grave and constant hardships and dangers to which their labour of love necessarily exposes them. Seligmann has given me immense help, advising me upon my notes, placing material at my disposal, and afterwards reading through a considerable portion of my manuscript. Williamson is the first British lawyer who has gone into the field, and he has proved that legal training may be a very good preliminary discipline for ethnological investigation in the field, as it gives invaluable practice in the best methods of acquiring and sifting of evidence. The following year he published the great book to which Mr.

Thanks mainly to the systematic investigations of Dr. But of the mountain region lying behind the Mekeo district very little indeed has been published; so Mr. Ray read a paper before the Anthropological Institute (Journ. For some years I had been studying the decorative art of British New Guinea, and from physical and artistic and other cultural reasons had come to the conclusion that the Melanesians of British New Guinea should be broken up into two elements: one consisting of the Motu and allied Melanesians, and the other of the inhabitants of the Massim district—an area extending slightly beyond that of Mr. I reinforced my position six years later (“Studies in the Anthropo-geography of British New Guinea,” Journ. The questions naturally arise: (1) Is the true Papuan a variable stock including both long- broad-headed elements?

Seligmann and to the sporadic observations of missionaries, government officials and travellers, we have a good general knowledge of many of the peoples of the eastern coast of the south-eastern peninsula of New Guinea, and of some of the islands from the Trobriands to the Louisiades. Williamson’s book fills a gap in our knowledge of Papuan ethnology. Ray’s Melano-Papuans (“The Decorative Art of British New Guinea,” Cunningham Memoirs, X., Roy. or (2) Does the broad-headed element belong to an immigrant people?

It will be observed that some of these lines are not continued so as to surround and complete the definition of the areas which they indicate; but this defect is unavoidable, as the Fathers’ map only covered a relatively small area, and even in that map the lines were not all carried to its margin.
