DS Davidson (9/7/1900-26/12/1952) under construction

Daniel Sutherland Davidson, with a 1928 doctorate in anthropology, spent 1930 and 1938-1940 on fieldwork and museum visits in Australia.
He published many articles on material culture.  His collection of about 4200 words of vocabulary of nineteen WA languages has remained unpublished and has had little attention from researchers.
