Query: Emu War in Australia

Colleagues: I am writing for a student in the U.S. who would like to do an undergraduate research paper on the Emu War in Australia in 1932. We have found very few sources on the incident, so I have suggested that she consider using the war as an illustration or gateway into historical wildlife management. However, we are still at an impasse as to what sources are readily available on Australia. My expertise is Latin American so any suggestions you have would be most welcome!  
If you would prefer to write off list, my email is: wilcox@nku.edu
