Collection Descriptive Notes:
An English-speaking American man reads the English portions of the 12 units, and a native speaker (male) supplies the Thai. [The texts produced by U.S.A.F.I. were reissued after the war by Henry Holt in 1947-48. They are to be found in Regenstein Library.]
Collection Technical Notes:
Phonograph records are the discs issued by U.S.A.F.I. [United States Armed Forces Institute] during World War II. "Set 1" of the tapes was dubbed from the records in the Old Lab in the 1950s; a special feature of the set is the addition (at the beginning of Tape 1) of "Tone Drills"--recorded live in the Old Lab. "Set 2" is another dub from the same records made in 1975. Note: For clarity Set 1 is to be preferred (and is the set that was digitized). The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
