Kili journal, August 28 to September 18, 1954 / Dr. Jack A. Tobin

“A field study was made of the current situation on Kili, the present location of the displaced Bikini people. The purpose of this study was to follow up on a study made in October of 1953, to ascertain what changes have been made, if any, in the Kili situation and in what direction; and especially to examine the present status of the Kili. Development Project—an attempt to aid the Kili people in making a successful, adjustment to an island whose environment and economic potentialities differ markedly from that of their ancestral home, Bikini Atoll.” (Quoted from introduction to the journal, kept by Dr. Jack A. Tobin in his capacity as District Anthropologist, Marshall Islands District, for the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands)
