Description: The Yuki materials in the Harvey Pitkin Papers constitute an extensive body of original documentation and linguistic analysis of the Yuki language, a language isolate of northern California. These materials are located almost entirely in "Series II: Yuki materials." This section contains materials recorded and analyzed Pitkin, but predominantly contains stories and other primary text materials (some originals, some as photocopies) recorded and analyzed by other linguists, mainly Alfred Kroeber, as well as briefer materials by Fanggui Li, Hans Uldall, Harold Driver, J.P. Harrington, and Dell Hymes. This section is split in to four sub-series: "Research Notes," "Vocabularies and slip files," "Texts and manuscripts," "Phonetic tracings," and "Correspondence." Some of the Kroeber materials in this collection are photocopies of materials now at the California Language Archive. The only speaker clearly identified as sources are Ralph Moore of Round Valley, though some of the materials may contain other named speakers further within the documents or as initials. The collection also includes Kroeber's kymographs and palatograms of Ralph Moore's speech. Many of the listings contain partial contents descriptions such as titles of stories.
