The Don Dunstan Oral History Project Collection is the result of a collaboration between the Don Dunstan Foundation and Flinders University.
During the project, interviews with contemporaries of Don Dunstan, including parliamentary colleagues, public servants, journalists, family and friends, were conducted by the Foundation, and the edited transcripts have been indexed by Flinders University Library.

The Collection consists of those transcripts edited and approved for unconditional release by the interviewee, as well as index entries for transcripts edited by the interviewee which are available only under certain conditions.

Applications for access to the restricted material should be made in the first instance to the Special Collections Librarian, Flinders University Library.
