Baldwin Goener Papers

  • UQFL63
  • Collection
  • 1890-1977

Draft manuscripts, autobiography, correspondence, Tatura Camp programmes, postcards, oral interview. The initial contact with the donor was through Dr Gunther Bonnin who was studying the speech patterns of German-born migrants in the Darling Downs region. Goener's writing reveals his Saxon origin, and lack of education in written English. He writes fluently, but his spelling and speech patterns are reproduced by ear. He refers by name to a number of German migrant families.

Goener, Baldwin, 1890-1976
