An unusual find

Besides the above periodicals, I found another listing, simply titled 'UFO RESEARCH AUSTRALIA.' This find consists of eight boxes of material. Besides a range of Australian and overseas periodicals, there are some interesting items. What are we to make of:

Confidential AFSRS1959 Onwards Part1
Confidential AFSRS1959 Onwards Part2
Confidential AFSRS1959 Onwards Part3
Correspondence 1973 - 1974 Part 1
Correspondence 1973 - 1974 Part 2
George Adamski File?

Who donated this material to the State Library of South Australia? There have always been rumours about the final resting place of some of the material which South Australian researcher Colin Norris left behind. Is this part of his extensive collection?

I know of no-one who has been into the State Library of South Australia, and examined these eight boxes of material. The following are the listed contents of these boxes. Naturally, I will be shortly heading of to the State Library of South Australia to take a look for myself.
