  • Function / Content
    This series comprises a collection of papers, photographs and correspondence used in research by Miss Violet Randall who wrote and researched an unpublished history of Melbourne Electric Supply Company (MES Co.) between 1936 and 1937.

    It appears that these papers were utilised in the research of Brown power: A jubilee history of the State Electricity Commission. This book was written by Cecil Edwards and published in 1969. (For related files and papers connected with the research for the Edwards history see VPRS 9680.) This series also contains essays written by various authors on the subject of electricity and the administration of the SEC.

  • Recordkeeping System
    None apparent. This is an accumulative series of files, papers and photographs. The records remain in the order in which they were maintained in the SEC archives, when they were part of series 70.

    Date range: This series apparently commenced in 1936 and ended in 1969. The series contents date from 1892.
