Slides 356 and 357 were not originally captioned. Dr. Grace has identified the man at left in this image as Dutch linguist J.C. Anceaux, and the location as Jayapura (then known as Hollandia). The others in photo are not identified. Dr. Grace's planned itinerary called for him to be in Jayapura, on two separate occasions: From August 5 through 11 1955, and again beginning October 3, 1955. He didn't ultimately arrive there for the second time until November 3, 1955. Between then and the first week of March, 1956, he was largely in Jayapura, with one trip to Fakfak and Sorong that he estimates took between two and three weeks.)
