Collection Descriptive Notes:
Native speaker (male), who is probably Shadick's collaborator, Ch'iao Chien, voices each text selection twice--once fluently, then with pauses for repetition. The texts are drawn from Volume II of the three-volume set, A first Course in Literary Chinese, by Harold Shadick (Ithica, NY: Cornell University Press, 1968). The set may be found in Regenstein Library.
Collection Technical Notes:
Masters are copies made c. 1971 for C.C. Chao, who donated them to the LLA in 2003. The recordings are not complete inasmuch as Selections 34 & 35 were not copied. No other information is known about the recordings. The WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
