'South Australia Unnumbered' data cards

One card series containing information on 37 individuals, identified by name, from various parts of South Australia. Cards are in varying formats and contain varying information. Most cards are in NB Tindale's hand. Some cards have notes on the reverse, including indicating that some of these individuals have had hand and/or face casts made. There are multiple cards on some individuals. This series of data cards appears to record an incomplete, experimental or opportunistic collection of data on some South Australian individuals, perhaps people known to NB Tindale, and including the following named individuals: Milerum (Clarence Long), David Unaipon, and Fred Murray. There is some overlap with the cards described below, AA346/4/5, 'South Australia Anthropological Data'.

Note that the data cards contain many variant spellings of tribal/language group names. In the descriptions here the various terms and spellings have been reproduced, with what appear to be amendments noted square brackets. It has not been possible in all cases to supply corresponding tribal/language group names according to standardised spellings adopted by NB Tindale (see AA 338) and AIATSIS (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies).
