Description: During the late 1930s, Amelia Susman Schultz conducted fieldwork on acculturation at the Round Valley Indian Reservation, California, for a Ph.D. thesis eventually published in 1976. Series II of the Amelia Susman Schultz Papers reflects both periods of research, though mostly the late 1930s. Of particular interest are: ten field notebooks from 1937, most containing some language data (undetermined as yet which languages) in addition to ethnographic notes from discussions with consultants; ethnographic notes arranged by subject (see items titled "Ethnographic notes by subject" in addition to "Notes on full sheets" and "Notes on half sheets"); descriptions of Round Valley's chronology, population history, genealogy, and socioeconomic surveys; and Schultz's works-in-progress, including the original dissertation.

Description: The Wailaki materials in the ACLS collection consist mainly of Goddard's 10 field notebooks in the "Wailaki" section of the finding aid. These consist mainly of texts with interlinear material on place names, with reference to an enclosed hand-drawn map, and information on deer hunting. Additional materials can be found in the "Hupa" section of the finding aid among Goddard's "Field notes in California Athabascan languages," which includes additional Waialki stories of undetermined extent, and in Goddard's "Hupa materials" which include some Wailaki texts.
