Nahua
Date: ca.1940s-2003
Type:Text
Extent: 2 linear feet
Description: William Bright's Nahuatl materials are sizeable and cover his entire research life, mostly consisting of his own work from the 1960s and 1990s (Series 4), and many copies of small publications throughout his life (Series 2). Of note in the small publications is almost every issue of “Nahua Newsletter” (Indiana University) between 1986 and 2004, issues 1-18 of “Mexihkatl Itonalama”, and several 1940s-1960s SIL-archived publications. From his own work (Series 4) are interlinear glosses of Nahuatl texts, materials in preparation for taught courses at UCLA, products of brief fieldwork in Ixmiquilpan, Mexico, 1966, working versions of two of his own publications, and further linguistic analysis. He also corresponded with several linguists on Nahuatl varieties (Series 1), including Una Canger, who gave him a copy of the Copenhagen Nahuatl Dictionary Project.

Extent: 3 linear feet
Description: The majority of Daythal Kendall's linguistic and ethnographic research was on Takelma, and so Takelma materials can be found throughout his collection. He built a large corpus of Takelma lexical items from sources including Edward Sapir's Takelma grammar (of which he hand-annotated many copies) and other works by W. H. Barnhardt, J. P. Harrington and others, some results of which were lexical slip files, in Series 8. From his dissertation in 1977 until the 2000s he worked on Takelma grammar and poetry, including many Coyote stories. There is a dedicated subseries to his research file for Takelma that reflects these. Extensive comparisons with other hypothesized Penutian languages can be found throughout, including in the correspondence Series 1. He also photographed Takelma baskets and the traditional Takelma landscape in several visits to the Takelma community, which can be found in Series 9.
