Description: Haas' Atakapa file consists mostly of morpheme analysis and lexical comparisons to languages of the Gulf area under the Gulf macrofamily hypothesis, the majority of which can be found in Series 9 under the headings of language families and proto-languages. Of particular interest is a comparative phonology of Southern US and Mexican languages, likely written by Morris Swadesh, in Series 3.

Description: Mary Haas did not conduct her own fieldwork on Chitimacha, but amassed sizeable lexica from Morris Swadesh, mostly used for comparisons with Muskogean languages and linguistic isolates under the “Gulf” hypothesis. One especially large instance of comparison involving Chitimacha is an 1821-word long English-Natchez-Chitimacha word list, partially filled, in Series 2 Subseries Natchez. The majority of the comparative lexica are slip files, in Series 9. Besides this, of particular interest is sheet music of several Chitimacha songs, untitled, from an unknown source, in Series 2 Subseries Chitimacha. Haas also published an article on clans and kinship terminology with Natchez comparisons, notes and discussions of which are in Series 4 Subseries 3.
