Listed by Peter Newton, Austehc and PARADISEC
Arthur Capell was an Australian linguist and ethnographer who spent much time recording and documenting both Australian Aboriginal languages and endangered languages in the Asia - Pacific region. The Arthur Capell textual collection consists of some thirty boxes of notes, transcripts, and other supporting materials. What is documented in this guide are some of the records relating to his non-Australian linguistic work that have been digitally imaged.
