Stander 1949 to 1974

Scope and Content

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2018, using material provided by eThembeni Cultural Heritage Management: he Msunduzi Museum incorporating the Voortrekker Complex has various artefacts collected from around the eMakhosini area during the 20th Century, by Reverend (Ds.) P. P. Stander. Stander was the resident curate of the Dutch Reformed Mission at Dingaanstadt. He was responsible for setting up a small, private museum next to the Mission Station, which he called the NG Sendingkerk Museum. The collection remained on public view until it was reclaimed by Stander due to what he perceived to be inadequate security and curation. Following his death, his family bequeathed the collection to the Msunduzi Museum. eThembeni Cultural Heritage, working on a mandate for the FHYA, identified the Ds. Stander collection at the Msunduzi Museum incorporating the Voortrekker Complex as being relevant to the uMgungundlovu archaeological sie, as Ds. Stander's collection consists of material collected in the eMakhosini region and the uMgungundlovu archaeological site is situated in this region. The museum's Dingaanstadt records have not been digitally archived, but the eThembeni Cultural Heritage have collated summaries of artefacts and items provenanced to the eMakhosini Valley. The museum agreed to allow the FHYA to put the digital images of 9 objects, as well as their associated metadata which were individually catalogued on a two-sided A4 paper record held by the museum, with artefact and provenance details listed in Afrikaans. The FHYA organised this material into separate files, with the objects and their associated materials housed in each file.]
