Abstract/Summary This collection comprises written documents and recordings collected by Elwyn Flint, mostly as part of his long term research project in the 1960s, known as the Queensland Speech Survey. The survey includes recordings of Indigenous Languages spoken by Aboriginal people all over the state and those spoken in the Torres Strait Islands. It remains the largest and broadest collection of languages spoken in Queensland in the 20th century.
