This last folder contains correspondence compiled by Voegelin revolving around the "Salish Problem," including letters from Morris Swadesh (on analysis of Salish material by Boas and James Teit in the ACLS collection), June Collins, Melville Jacobs. This folder also includes draft of a paper on Salish languages based upon the discussion in these letters. The final Salish item is located in Series IV. Works by Others and consists of Jay Ellis Ransom's "Pronomial System in Duwamish Salish" (1945). Researchers should also view the entries for specific Salishan languages.
