These are untranslated, except for three, which have interlinear translation and notes. Also in the collection is "Essay on the grammar of the Aleut language," with Boas's corrections, and "Aleut Folklore" an ethnography of the Unangan by an unidentified author, likely a student of Boas, based on study made of the Aleut texts of Vladimir Jochelson. Comparative folklore and abstracts of Aleut tales are included. In the "Eskimo" section of the finding aid, also see Swadesh's "Unaaliq Eskimo vocabulary file," which contains comparisons with Aleut dialects.
