The interviews were held for a doctoral thesis on the attitude of the ARP towards the New Guinea issue in 1961-62. The interviewees were ARP-politicians at that time or otherwise affiliated with the ARP, like Prof. Verkuyl. Mrs. Vellema is the daughter of the ARP-politician Bruins Slot, who died in 1972. Under his influence, the ARP-fraction advocated a direct transfer of New Guinea to Indonesia in 1961.
