Description

Dr. Grace's planned itinerary called for him to be in Honiara (Guadalcanal, Solomon Islands) 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. Metcalfe is not further identified in the slide captioning, though Dr. Grace is reasonably certain he (Metcalfe) was the head of the Methodist Mission in Munda. (Slide number 217 identifies the area as Munda.) To read more about Dr. Grace's activities in the Solomon and Western Solomon Islands, see TRIPP report 3 in our digitized documents.
