Abstract

Dr Walter E. Roth was a medical doctor and a Queensland government Protector of Aborigines from 1898 until 1905. In his travels through North Queensland and Cape York, Roth acquired many Aboriginal artefacts, took many photos and gathered cultural information, all of which he recorded meticulously. In 1905 he sold his collection to the Australian Museum. The information presented here is intended to provide an accurate outline of the detailed publication: Roth, Walter E. North Queensland Ethnography: Bulletin No. 4. Games, Sports and Amusements. Edmund Gregory, Government Printer, William Street, Brisbane, 1902. The bulletin has been reviewed and transcribed and typographical errors and other minor corrections and additions (for clarity to references citied) to the text of the document have been made. In addition, the various annotations that were later made to this publication by Walter E. Roth have been presented. These annotations have been outlined in the publication: Allen, Lindy. and Borey, Bernice (comps). Annotations to Publications by W.E. Roth. Lauer, Peter K (ser. ed.). Cultural and Historical Records of Queensland. Number 3. Anthropology Museum, University of Queensland, St. Lucia, Queensland, 1984 (Jan.). The extensive number of illustrations and photographs in the original publication have not been reproduced and the original publication of Bulletin is available from other sources. The task of presenting this work has been undertaken for the benefit of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples (particularly from the geographic areas mentioned), researchers and others interested in information on this topic.
