From the Kundiawa News Special Goroka Show issue of 29 August 1964
MUCH of the early history of the Chimbu lies unrecorded in the memories of the men who explored and subdued the warlike Chimbu who dwell in one of the most mountainous and densely populated areas of the Territory.
A little more can be found in dry official reports and academic publications. I have before me a nineteen page essay on the history of Chimbu prepared by Patrol Officer [Pat] Dwyer last year, but this gives but a brief coverage.
In an article such as this I shall briefly touch only on the salient points of the last thirty years and hope that one day, whilst most of the pioneers are still alive someone will devote the time and research required to write a full history of most interesting region.
