Contributor: Berman, Howard | Newman, Stanley S. (Stanley Stewart), 1905-1984 | Kelly, John | Wessell, Viola
Extent: 58 pages
Description: This collection includes a 1985 cover letter from Howard Berman to Stephen Catlett of the American Philosophical Society donating two letters from Stanley Newman (1981 and 1984), a manuscript entitled "Central Sierra Miwok Vocabulary," and an offprint of Berman's article "Some California Penutian Morphological Elements." The letters are Newman's reply to Berman's queries regarding the former's sources for certain elements of the Chukchansi [Yokuts] language--which Berman cited in his article--and Newman's comment on that article. The Miwok manuscript is based on Berman's fieldwork in 1970, working primarily with Miwok speaker John Kelly and to a lesser extent Viola Wessell. Berman notes that this was his first fieldwork and that his inexperience led to some inaccuracies: "I believe that in the instances where Freeland and I disagree, Freeland's recordsings are to be preferred." Note that the offprint has been moved to printed materials.

Description: Materials from a wide range of indigenous cultures around the world are scattered throughout Series V of the A. Irving Hallowell Papers. Hallowell was interested in comparative ethnology on a number of topics including Bear Ceremonialism, textiles, artistic representations of Native people, basketry, kinship, pre-history, the development of language, family and marriage, nets and netting, etc. Much of this material constitutes Hallowell's reading notes on secondary sources and his research for very broad-based studies of humanity. Geographic regions represented in Series V include Australia, Africa, Pacific Islands, Polar regions California, Northwest coast, Southwest, and Southeast. The correspondence, in Series I, includes a very interesting, brief description of Franz Boas' first visit to the Kwakwaka'wakw community of Fort Rupert by the daughter of George Hunt in a folder labled Ronald Rohmer. There is also a letter from Edward Sapir detailing Nuu-chah-nulth bear hunting and face painting as well as sketches of netting needles.

Description: This collection includes manuscript and photocopied material of anthropologist and linguist Lucy S. "Nancy" Freeland, in which she records the stories told to her by Thomas Williams and Lena Cox. Also included are offprints from "The Hudson Review" of translations of these myths by linguist Jaime de Angulo (Freeman's husband). There are also documents prepared by linguist Howard Berman in preparation for the publication of these myths in "Freeland's Central Sierra Miwok Myths" (1982). The various materials are stored in four packets labeled A, B, C, and D, and bound together with string. An extremely useful cover letter in Packet A from Berman to Stephen Catlett of the APS explains the materials (what they are, provenance, who made what notations upon them) and their relationship to Freeland materials already in the APS collections; APS staff have also made relevant notes in pencil to denote where the various materials can be found. Images are primarily of Coyote, the black and white illustrations accompany the text of “Seven Indian Tales” by Jaime de Angulo. Originally printed in the Hudson Review, an offprint of the published work Indian Tales (1952).
