This slide was originally uncaptioned. Based in its sequencing in the collection, it is possibly Banga Island. Prof. Grace's planned itinerary called for him to be in Honiara from August 29 through September 13, 1955. He also spent roughly two weeks in the Western Solomon Islands, mainly at the Methodist Mission station in Munda (New Georgia Island) and on Banga Island, which TRIPP Report number three identifies as the site of the Methodist Mission School. To read more about Dr. Grace's activities in the Solomon and Western Solomon Islands, see TRIPP report 3 in our digitized documents. (Adobe PDF reader required.)
