[Doniambo nickel refinery. Vallee des Colons. Noumea, New Caledonia]
Dr. Grace was in New Caledonia on two separate occasions during his travels. The first visit occurred sometime in late January or early February of 1955, lasted less than a week, and was spent entirely in Noumea. The second visit was from roughly March 30 to July 15, 1955, and included the northern regions of the island as well.
