    Summary: Author and Lecturer. David Unaipon, who is well known in Adelaide and elsewhere, celebrated his eightieth birthday in September, 1952. He was born at the Point McLeay Mission in 1872 where his father was one of the native evangelists. He was educated at the Mission school and in the Home, where he was taught Bible stories and native legends. As a youth he spent several years in the home of Mr C.B. Young, in Adelaide, and Kanmantoo. On his return to the Mission, he joined the Mutual Improvemennt Society, read books, memorised poetry, studied music, and heard lectures by visiting clergymen and others. For several years he was organist at the Mission church services, and occasionally gave the sermon. He came to Adelaide, and worked in a factory, and as a storeman. He has written newspaper articles and aboriginal legends, and has for many years been regarded as an authority on the aborigines. He is also of an inventive turn of mind, and for years has been experimenting in perpetual motion, the secret of which he firmly believes will eventually be discovered. Years ago he was a missionary deputation for the Church of England, and spoke in St Andrews Cathedral, Sydney, and other churches. He has been engaged lately in distributing booklets on the aborigines prepared by the Aborigines Friends Association. He says he is everywhere kindly received, and that the acceptance of the aborigine today depends mainly on the aborigine himself. He was among those who received the Coronation Medal.
