  • Unique New Guinea Item – C.A.W Monckton’s Trilogy of His Adventures in New Guinea; Fact of Fiction – A Thesis by Nancy Lutton

    Unique New Guinea Item – C.A.W Monckton’s Trilogy of His Adventures in New Guinea; Fact of Fiction – A Thesis by Nancy Lutton

    Submitted to the University of Papua New Guinea as part of a BA in History in December 1972. Nancy Lutton was born in Sydney in 1931 and lived in PNG from 1967-1980 where she was the New Guinea Collection Librarian. As well as academic works she published “My Dearest Brown Eyes” the letters between Sir Donald Cleland and his wife during WWII. She was awarded an MBE in 1981.

    This 92 page plus map thesis is most provoking as it explores the character of Charles Monckton a New Zealander (born 1873) who found himself in New Guinea in 1897 and under MacGregor was given the post as resident magistrate Eastern Division. He carried out explorations but after criticism of his cruel practices resigned in 1907 and went to London where he wrote three books “Some Experiences of a Resident Magistrate” (1920), “Last Days in New Guinea” (1922) and “New Guinea Recollections” (1934). Nancy Lutton concludes that the first two books though biased in judgement were factually correct whilst the third book sullied his reputation in an attempt to exonerate himself. Nancy Lutton wrote his lengthy entry in the “Australian Dictionary of Biography” and her conclusions are based on this thesis.
