Scope and content
Over the years Professor McLeod initiated a number of book proposals (mostly edited), a few of which were realized. Some that were not are also documented here. He also wrote a number of articles and compiled bibliographies and chronologies. This series also contains many of his editorials from Multiculturalism, and his book reviews, but letters asking him to review books are mostly filed in Series 1, with a few in Series 4.
Most of the titles in this series are in manuscript form, often with accompanying correspondence and notes. There are more manuscripts for articles than for books. The manuscripts are arranged, within each accession, in chronological order of publication date and by the date written, if not published. The articles document his principal interests – multicultural education and health – though his wider interests are also reflected, as in “Josiah Wedgwood and the potter’s art.” There is also a file on the second issue of the Journal of Ethno-Development, which McLeod co-edited. There are whole or partial drafts of several books, two of which are untitled, but including Aboriginal Languages and Education (1988) and Health and Culture: exploring the relationships (1993). There is also a file on the production of his video, ‘Putting it all together’ (1991), and drafts of ‘The multicultural experience at FEUT’ (1995-1996) (both in B1997-0013/002 and 003). The series concludes with a typescript of Guiseppe Masi’s autobiographical Like a Dream: as short story of my life.
