This series consists of about 380 photographs, one 45 rpm record and six films relating to Prime Minister Harold Edward Holt and his wife, Mrs Zara Holt (later Dame Zara). The material mainly covers the period when Holt was Prime Minister (1966-1967), although many of the photographs relate to his earlier career, particularly as Minister for Immigration (1949-1956) and later, Treasurer (1958-1966).
The photographs include official portraits, family photographs, Australian News and Information Bureau and other official photographs covering a wide range of Holt's official engagements both in Australia and overseas. A smaller number of photographs relate to Mrs Zara Holt, including her childhood, early fashion business in Melbourne, as wife of a senior political figure and after Holt's death.
