Description: The full title of this manuscript is "Estimate of the Fur and Peltry Trade in the District of Michilimackinac, according to the bounds and limits, assign'd to it by the French, when under their government: together with an account of the situation and names of the several out-posts." Robert Rogers was commander of Fort Michilimackinac from 1766-1768. Rogers gave this manuscript to Jonathan Carver (the man he has sent on an expedition to find the Northwest Passage), who relayed it to Thomas Barton of Lancaster, Pa., who, in turn, sent it to the American Philosophical Society. It was received at the APS and referred to the Committee on Trade and Commerce on December 20, 1768. The manuscript may be the first separate manuscript collected by the American Philosophical Society.

Description: The Pennsylvania Provincial Council Minutes run from 1693 to 1717 and consist of approximately 520 pages of documents. Of note within them is a 5-page manuscript from May 19, 1712, when Delaware (Lenape) chief Sassoonan and 12 members of his nation carried 32 wampum belts to a meeting with the Haudenosaunee (Iroquois Confederacy). They stopped in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania and showed the belts to the British colony’s Provincial Council. This document shows their drawings of each belt’s design and an account of their meaning. This document has been digitized and can be viewed in the collection's finding aid. Some parts of the rest of the minutes may contain other information relating to indigenous peoples. The minutes for 1700-1712 were printed in Hazard's "Register of Pennsylvania" 6 (1830).

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.

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.
