Petra Luus (HF Archivist) is in the process of organising the Voortrekker Monument (VTM) archival collection. Sorting started with the Central Monuments Council (1931 – 1968). Sections already completed include: establishment of the Council, general meetings, membership, administration, co-operation with government, Monument fund, finances, as well as documents related to provincial, historical and building committees. Petra is currently working on the Centenary Committee. The collection contains interesting documents, such as this note (below) on fines paid during the laying of the VTM corner stone.
