General tsetse archives

The following articles, reports, short papers and personal correspondence were digitalised and uploaded to this site on 13.07.2010. The reports were originally labelled by DF Lovemore: "Reports, memoranda, documents and letters on tsetse and trypanosomiasis in Rhodesia by Rhodesian tsetse and trypanosomiasis personnel, members of the Tryps Committee, members of other departments/ministries and visiting experts".

This archive was made from scanned image files that were reduced in size and then converted to pdf format. There may be some loss of quality for a few papers. Lastly, there is some missing labels for certain downloads. We hope this will be rectified shortly.

Please give any advice or suggestions for corrections or additions to this data archive to Hayden Eastwood: hayden.eastwood 'at' gmail.com.
