She collected information on Eyak phonology and on several speakers of Eyak in Cordova, Alaska, details of which can be found in Series 2 Subseries ‘Eyak' and possibly also Series 1 correspondence with Frederica de Laguna. There are also comparisons with Tlingit and other Dene languages in Series 9.
