Description: One of Haas' students, William Bright, completed a grammar of Karuk as his PhD dissertation, and from this are derived a card file (Series 9) consisting of a lexicon, grammatical analyses, comparisons to various languages including proto-languages, and loanwords and placenames, which would later become a significant part of Bright's legacy. Comparisons to other languages of California and elsewhere are also found in correspondence with Karl-Heinz Gursky (Series 1) and other locations in Series 9.
