Collection of South African Khoisan Languages on shellac and vinyl records, tapes, CD and booklet, which were donated to Historical Papers by Professor Anthony Traill in 2004. Prof. Emeritus Anthony Traill was formerly head of the Department of Linguistics at Wits University.
The recordings were made of the last surviving fluent speakers of two major South African Khoisan linguistic families, the Khoekoe (Khoi) and the !Kwi (San). Many of the original recordings on the shellac records were made in the Phonetics Laboratory of the University in 1936, when a group of Bushmen visited Johannesburg for the Empire Exhibition. The recordings on the 33rpm record was made some 18 years later. The recordings were later archived on optical discs with manual enhancement. More description about the project, comments about the recordings and the Khoisan languages, can be found in the booklet which accompanied the CD, produced by Professor Anthony Traill and the Department of Linguistic, Wits University.
The collection contains private papers, correspondence and photos relating to the Matthews family, biographical notes on family members, letters from John Matthews in prison, obituaries for John Matthews and his statement to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC).
