Ditidaht
Date: ca.1931-1972
Subject: Linguistics | Music
Extent: 1.5 linear feet
Description: The most noteworthy aspect of Mary Haas' Ditidaht file, stemming from fieldwork conducted with Morris Swadesh as her first fieldtrip, is a fairly detailed transcription of songs collected. Series 2 contains the transcriptions and Series 10 the cassette copies, while the original tapes are housed at the Indiana University Archives of Traditional Music. There is much overlap with Nuu-chah-nulth, as Haas frequently identified correspondences between them. A sizeable lexical file (Series 9) and correspondence with many, especially Edward Sapir and George Herzog (Series 1) may also be of interest.

Makah
Date: 1931-1982
Subject: Linguistics | Music
Type:Text
Extent: 0.5 linear feet
Description: Mary Haas' Makah file appears to be mostly derived from work by William Jacobsen, who frequently assisted Haas with developing her collection throughout her life. These include correspondence (Series 1 and 2) and parts of lexica, often compared with Ditidaht and Nuu-chah-nulth especially. The largest lexicon is in Series 9, from work by Leo Frachtenberg and Morris Swadesh, at around 1000 slips.
