The personal papers and much of the library of the late A.J.N. Richards were presented as a generous gift by the Richards family to the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak (UNIMAS). They now comprise a special reserve collection called the “AJN Richards Collection” in the university’s library, thereby fulfilling the family’s wish that these materials be given a permanent home in Sarawak.

Transfer of the Richards papers was formally marked by a ceremony held on 22 October 2001 on the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak campus at Kota Samarahan (see photos). Ill health prevented Daphne, Anthony Richards’ widow, from making the trip from England. However, through the generosity of the Tun Jugah Foundation, two of their sons, Huw and Michael Richards, were able to be present in Sarawak and together represented the family during the handover ceremony.

The Deputy Vice Chancellor of UNIMAS, Professor Khairuddin Abd. Hamid, received the papers on behalf of the university. Also present at the ceremony were Datuk Amar Leonard Linggi Jugah, Director of the Tun Jugah Foundation, whose father, Tun Jugah, was a friend of Anthony Richards during the latter’s years as an administrative officer in what is now the Kapit Division; Dato Tra Zehnder, Director of the Majlis Adat Istiadat and also a friend of Anthony Richards during his Sarawak years; Jayl Langub, Secretary of the Majlis Adat Istiadat; Prof. Michael Leigh, Director of the Institute of East Asian Studies; myself, as Chair of Dayak Studies; and Temenggong William Linang, retired Senior Sarawak Administrative Officer, who had served with Richards as a colonial officer in the early 1960s. Ms. Siti Sumaizan Ramli represented the library and following the handover ceremony, gave Huw and Michael Richards a tour of CAIS and introduced them to Ms. Zainun Mat Nor, the Special Collections Librarian, who is directly responsible for conserving and cataloguing the AJN Richards Collection. Ms. Zainun showed them the cataloguing room and area set aside for the Richards materials in the CAIS library. The ceremony was followed by lunch.

The initial sorting and evaluation of Anthony Richards’ papers and books was undertaken at the family’s request by Professor Bob Reece of Murdoch University, who provided a broad listing of manuscript material, while Huw Richards drew up a checklist of most of the books and journals. Professor Reece brought the collection to the attention of the Tun Jugah Foundation and myself at UNIMAS and suggested that it should be given a home in Sarawak. The latter was also the wish of the Richards family. The shipping of the papers and books from England was funded by the UNIMAS Library Committee and was organized by myself with the help of Huw and Michael Richards. I received the shipment, consisting of a crate containing fourteen large boxes, on behalf of the UNIMAS library on 2 January 2002. In addition, the Richards brothers had brought with them for the handover ceremony in October a collection of over 2,000 photographic prints and negatives. This material has since been divided between the Tun Jugah Foundation archives and CAIS (see in this issue, “A.J.N. Richards’ Photographs in the Universiti Malaysia Sarawak and Tun Jugah Foundation Libraries”).

CAIS and the Southeast Asia Collection

The Southeast Asia Collection at CAIS was established in October 2001 through an initial gift of 2800 volumes from Professor Emeritus Marvin Rogers of the University of Missouri. Since then, the Collection has been augmented by further gifts from Professor Rogers, as well as a number of additional donations, including a collection of books and journals on general and Southeast Asian anthropology from the estate of the late Professor William R. Geddes. However, the A.J.N. Richards papers and books comprise, together with the Rogers gift, the major cornerstone of the university’s Southeast Asia Collection. While the Rogers collection is strong on Peninsular Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, the Richards collection focuses almost exclusively on Borneo and in particular on Sarawak, and besides books and journals, also includes, as noted, an extensive collection of photographs, correspondence, notebooks, manuscripts, and other unpublished materials.

Richards’ Life, Writings and the AJN Riehards Collection

Anthony John Noel Richards was born on 3 December 1914 at Sheepscombe in Gloucestershire, England. His father was a country vicar. After graduating from Hertford College, Oxford, he entered the Sarawak civil service as a Brooke cadet officer in September 1938. His first posting was to the Secretariat where he worked under Mr. Andrew MacPherson, then Secretary for Native Affairs. Here, he rapidly gained fluency in both Iban and Malay. His posting, first to Sarikei in the lower Rejang in 1940, and then, in 1941, as District Officer in Betong, Saribas, shortly before the Japanese Occupation, confirmed what later became a lifelong interest in Iban affairs. During the war, he was interned at the Batu Lintang prisoner of war camp.

Following his release, Richards was sent on furlough to recuperate in England and while there, married Daphne Oswell who had been a childhood friend. In 1946, he, now together with Daphne, returned to Sarawak where he entered the colonial civil service. During the British colonial period he served at various postings, first as a District Officer and later as a Resident, throughout much of Sarawak. After Malaysian independence, he remained briefly in the postcolonial government before returning to England in February 1964. In leaving Sarawak, Anthony and Daphne, according to their son Huw, changed their first class tickets for second class and used the difference to travel a meandering route back, visiting a number of places where they had never been before, including Athens where they spent the Greek Orthodox Easter of that year. Following their return, Anthony worked until his retirement in 1980 as Secretary-Librarian for the Centre for South Asian Studies at Cambridge University.

Virtually the whole of Anthony Richards’ working life was devoted to Sarawak and the peoples of the State. From his early experiences as a young administrative officer, he developed a special affection for the Iban and Malay of the Second Division, and the Iban he spoke retained, for the rest of his life, an unmistakable Saribas flavor. This was so, even though he was later posted to the Rejang, where he came to know well the redoubtable Iban leaders of the time, Temenggong Koh and Tun Jugah. The latter, together with his son Linggi, then a law student at the University of Hull, later visited the Richards family in Cambridge.

Richards is remembered by those who knew him during his Sarawak years as an avid writer who continually took notes, recording his observations and taking down stories and conversations from those around him in small pocket notebooks which he kept constantly at hand. These valuable notebooks comprise an important part of the AJN Richards Collection and were extensively used by Richards in the compilation of his dictionary. Richards was also uniquely gifted with an ear for the poetic language of spoken Iban. This gift is abundantly displayed in his Iban-English Dictionary which gives notable attention to the use of rhyme, alliteration and other stylistic devices, particularly in Iban liturgical chants, storytelling, songs, wordplay and humor. But it is also present in his ethnographic writings as well, for example, in “The migrations of the Ibans and their poetry” (Sarawak Museum Journal, 1949, vol. 5, pp. 77-87), Rita Tujoh Malam (a collection of Iban stories, 1960, Borneo Literature Bureau), and especially, perhaps, Leka Main Iban (an anthology of Iban poetry, 1966, Borneo Literature Bureau). Leka Main Iban was initially conceived to be part of an innovative project intended to introduce Sarawak school children to Iban poetic forms as a complement to the study of English literature. Sadly, this project died with independence. The AJN Richards Collection contains all of Anthony Richards’ published works concerned with the Iban, as well as a small number of unpublished Iban texts, including prayers (sampi) and a transcribed version of the sabak bebuah (lamentation for the dead, told as a poetic narrative), the latter with notes and annotations.

Richards also wrote on the Saribas Malays. Especially notable is his “The descent of some Saribas Malays” (Sarawak Museum Journal, 1963, vol. 11, pp. 99-107) and Dayang Isah Tandang Sari (a Saribas Malay legend in Malay and English translation, 1962, Borneo Literature Bureau). He also left an unpublished photostat transcript in Jawi of a long Saribas Malay syair, a copy of which, together with a Romanized transcription and notes, are to be found in the AJN Richards Collection. (See in this issue, Bob Reece’s “The Syair Saribas Project.”)

After returning to England, Richards began work on An Iban-English Dictionary. In an autobiographical note written in 1981, he tells us that the idea of writing a dictionary came from friends and colleagues in Sarawak shortly before he left for England. Once back, the project consumed much of his spare time for more than a decade. Not only did he compose the entries and write the entire dictionary, he also had to raise a substantial sum of money to subsidize its publication by Oxford University Press. Happily, this sum was later recovered from the book’s sales.

An Iban-English Dictionary was first published by Clarendon Press, Oxford, in December 1981. A major work of scholarship, the Dictionary is widely regarded by linguists, anthropologists, and others as one of the finest works of its kind ever compiled for any Southeast Asian language. Far more than a simple dictionary, its more than 10,000 entries, many of them of an encyclopedic nature, and all richly cross-referenced, remain an invaluable source of information on Iban history, culture, social life, mythology, customary law, ritual, politics and poetics: the summation, in short, of a lifetime of keen observation. An inexpensive Malaysian reprint of An Iban-English Dictionary was published in 1988 by Penerbit Fajar Bakti, Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, with financial assistance from UNESCO, and continues to be widely used in Sarawak.

A substantial and valuable part of the AJN Richards Collection consists of notes, word entry cards, manuscript drafts, and page proofs of An Iban-English Dictionary. There is a great deal of unpublished material contained on these cards and earlier page drafts that had to be deleted from the more abbreviated entries that appeared in the published dictionary. Of the fourteen boxes of material comprising the Collection, four boxes relate directly to the dictionary, including one box of Iban word entry cards and two boxes of notes organized for use in compiling dictionary entries. In addition, one box of books largely contains other dictionaries and language-related materials.

For Sarawak administrative officers serving like Anthony Richards in Dayak areas, settling land disputes formed a significant part of their duties. Richards, from early on in his career, showed himself to be a singularly insightful observer of Dayak customary law and judicial procedures, including, importantly, the use of offerings and ritual restitution in resolving breaches of custom. Twenty years ago, he was still remembered by Iban elders in the Saribas for his grasp of Iban principles of legal procedure. Beginning with his first “outstation” postings as a district officer, he took up the work started by earlier Brooke officers of codifying what were initially described as “fine lists,” or tusun tunggu in Iban. In 1953 the Government Printer published the first of his compilations as Code of Fines or Tusun Tunggu Iban, Third Division. By the end of his career, Richards was universally recognized as the foremost authority on native, and in particular, Iban customary law and land tenure. In 1961, he published a major work on the subject, Land Law and Adat (Kuching: Government Printer). In the same year, he was appointed to a committee created by the colonial government charged with drafting land law reform legislation. Two major works resulted from this assignment: Dayak Adat Law in the Second Division (in Iban and English, 1963, Kuching: Government Printer), and Dayak Adat Law in the First Division-Bidayuh (in English, 1964, Kuching: Government Printer). Both remain definitive works and were the primary sources drawn on for the more recent compilations of Iban and Bidayuh adat produced by the Majlis Adat Istiadat.

Included among the unpublished papers contained in the AJN Richards Collection are a number of flies and notebooks relating to the proceedings of the land reform committee, 1962-63, and to the historic conference or aum on Iban customary law held in Simanggang in 1961. There are also files on specific land dispute cases.

Anthony Richards died in Cambridge, England, on 15 November 2000.

Content and Scope of the Collection

So far, only Anthony Richards’ books and journals have been catalogued. The work of cataloguing the remainder of the Collection is still underway.

Books and Journals

The Collection contains over 200 books relating primarily to Sarawak. These are included in the checklist below, compiled by Huw Richards with the help of Professor Bob Reece, and include such notable Sarawak classics as James Brooke’s Borneo and Celebes, 2 vols.; Charles Brooke’s Ten Years in Sarawak, 2 vols.; John Templer, Private Letters of Rajah James Brooke, 3 Vols.; Baring-Gould and Bampfylde, A History of Sarawak under its two white Rajahs; and Henry Keppel’s Voyage of the Maeander: a visit to the Indian Archipelago and The Expedition to Borneo of HMS Dido for the suppression of piracy, 2 vols. Also contained in the Collection are 55 Borneo Literature Bureau volumes, including most of those published in the Iban language, as well as the Bureau’s Iban language school texts, Pelajar Iban (books 1-6), in the 1970 and 1982 editions.

The collection also includes, as mentioned earlier, a number of dictionaries, phrase books, and published vocabularies. Besides Iban dictionaries such as Howell and Bailey’s Sea Dyak Dictionary, the Collection also contains dictionaries of other Sarawak languages, as well as a valuable collection of Malay dictionaries and language materials, including Wilkinson’s 2-volume Malay-English Dictionary and Swettenham’s Vocabulary of the English and Malay Languages.

Given the virtually non-existent periodical holdings in the UNIMAS library, the gift of journals contained in the AJN Richards Collection is particularly welcome. Of special note is a complete set of the Sarawak Museum Journal, from 1911, vol. 1 (numbers 1-4) through 1997, vol. 51 (number 72), including all of the Special Monographs published by the Sarawak Museum Journal through 1997. Except for vol. 1, the Collection also contains a complete set of the Borneo Research Bulletin, from 1970, volume 2, through 1999, volume 30. Also included in the Collection is a small set of the Borneo Chronicle (48-50), from 1985 through 2000, published by the Borneo Mission Association, and the colonial government’s Sarawak Annual Reports of 1958, 1960 and 1962.

Of the 14 boxes comprising the original Collection, six boxes contained books and journals, including one box of the Sarawak Museum Journal and Special Monographs and a second box holding mainly Borneo Literature Bureau publications.

Correspondence

One box in the Collection consists entirely of personal correspondence. Anthony Richards maintained, throughout his life, an extensive circle of correspondents, exchanging letters with friends and colleagues all over the world, including many in Sarawak. Richards was extremely generous with his knowledge and the experience he had gained during his years in Sarawak and the correspondence collection includes long and detailed letters written to nearly every anthropologist, historian, and others concerned with Sarawak, or with the Iban in particular, including Derek Freeman, Traude Gavin, Michael Heppell, Rodney Needham, Robert Nicholl, Vic Porritt, Bob Pringle, Bob Reece, Benedict Sandin, myself, Vinson Sutlive, Naimah Talib, and many others. The correspondence is arranged in individual files by correspondent and includes in most cases both the correspondent’s letters and copies of Richards’ replies.

Dictionary Notes

Dictionary notes, as mentioned earlier, make up a major part of the unpublished papers contained in the AJN Richards Collection. This material consists of two boxes of dictionary notes and one box of word entry file cards, plus numerous dictionary-related folio files, some of them containing dictionary page proofs. There is also a file of correspondence that Richards maintained with Oxford University Press.

Iban Notes, Notebooks, Manuscripts and Papers

Of the 14 boxes in the Collection, two boxes contain notebooks. These were organized in alphabetical order by Richards for use in compiling his dictionary, one box holding materials from A through O, the other P through Z. Included in the Collection is also an unpublished transcript with notes of the sabak bebuah (lament for the dead), apparently recorded by Richards in the Julau area, and a small miscellaneous collection of other texts, including prayers (sampi) and fragments of chants. There are also folio folders containing material on Iban poetry, augury (beburung), tusut or genealogies, and adat and land dispute case material, as well as notes and manuscript drafts for many of Richards’ published writings on the Iban. Among the tusut are a number of genealogies of Rejang Iban, including Penghulu Empam, Temenggong Jugah, and others.

Malay Notes, Manuscripts and Papers

In addition to the Saribas Malay syair manuscript mentioned earlier, entitled, as a manuscript, “Shae’r Silah-Silah Melayu Saribas. Ini-lah shae’r tersilah … Abang Gudam dengan Temenggong Kadir Negri Saribas,” there are also notes on spoken Sarawak Malay, local Malay place names, and a folio file of Saribas Malay genealogies, particularly those of Malay officers in the colonial administration of the time. In addition, there are also notes on Malay stories, including the ever-popular Abu Nawas tales.

Richards’ Published Writings

The Collection includes copies of many of A.J.N. Richards’ published writings. So far, the following have been catalogued:

1. Lawai / A. Richards.-[Brunei: Printed by the Government Printing Department], Reprinted from Brunei Museum Journal; vol. 4, no. 2, 1978, pp. 1-10.

2. Dayak adat law in the First Division: adat Bidayuh / compiled by A.J.N. Richards. Kuching, Sarawak: Govt. Printing Off., 1964.

3. Iban augury / by Anthony Richards. Reprinted from Sarawak Museum Journal; vol. XX, no. 40-41 (new series).

4. Leka main Iban / dipilih Anthony Richards. [Kuching, Sarawak]: Borneo Literature Bureau, 1966.

5. Penemu begiga / olih Jarit Meluda ; di-adu ka Anthony Richards. [Kuching, Sarawak]: Borneo Literature Bureau, [1962].

6. Tibang, tebang, tilong and Mandai / A.J.N Richards. Reprinted from Sarawak Museum Journal; vol. X, nos. 19-20 (new series), 1962.

As cataloguing continues, more titles will be added.

General Notes

A number of folio folders contain material on customary law, land tenure, the Simanggang Conference on Iban adat, and the deliberations and draft recommendations of the land reform committee. There are also some administrative memos and government correspondence, as well as notes taken during the course of “outstation” travels, including sketch maps showing the location of longhouses along the rivers being traveled. Notable also is a manuscript “Vocabulary of Sadong Land Dayak,” compiled by the Serian Roman Catholic Mission. Included also are reading notes made by Anthony Richards mainly of materials relating to the Iban such as Derek Freeman’s writings on Iban shamanism and augury, and notes on bird sightings collected by Richards for Bertram Smythies.

Photographs

Included in the material presented by the Richards family to CAIS is a collection of 260 black-and-white photographs and 411 negatives, nearly all of them taken by Anthony Richards himself between 1939 and 1964. So far, about eighty percent of this material has been scanned, digitized, and stored in jpg form on CD files. Eventually, it is planned that all of it will be digitized and that a large selection of photos will be made accessible to those wishing to view them through the CAIS website. (See, for more information, Clifford Sather, “A.J.N. Richards Photographs in CAIS and Tun Jugah Foundation Libraries” in this volume).

Richards’ photographs cover a wide range of subjects, and many capture aspects of everyday life that are now part of Sarawak’s past (see photo, “Iban mother bathing her baby”)
