I am researching the life of E H Henderson who was Chief Architect of the Commonwealth from 1929 to 1939, succeeding John Smith Murdoch.
He worked for the Department of Works (CA14) (which become the Department of Interior, CA27) in Canberra.
I am trying to understand his role in the department and his dealings with Ministers and other officers.
Is there any way to browse what kinds of files are held in relation to a Cth department in the 1930s. For example, do they have general correspondence files? Meeting papers? Henderson's name may not appear through a search, but he may be mentioned in these documents, so I can't simply type his name in.
I have looked at advance search, but can't figure out how to browse.
Any advice would be much appreciated
