- The Streeten collection includes over two hundred objects, almost all of which are from mainland Papua New Guinea. Letters from Frank Streeten to the Museum in 1919 seem to suggest he collected them himself. He negotiated the purchase of his collection by the Museum, and requested that the cheque for £40 be sent to his father, a Reverend R.H. Streeten.
