Description

A collection of sound recordings from Theodore "Ted" Schwartz, UC San Diego Professor of Anthropology and specialist on the Manus people of Papua New Guinea, digitized from reel-to-reel audio tapes and audiocassettes. The recordings were created during Schwartz's research expeditions from 1953 through the 1990s. Most of the interviews are conducted in Tok Pisin, the lingua franca in Papua New Guinea, as well as other local languages from Manus Province. The recordings feature interviews, cultural and religious ceremonies, lectures, songs and unique linguistic studies of various peoples and villages on Manus Island, Papua New Guinea. Also included are a few select recordings of Schwartz's classroom lectures.
