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.
Collection: Mary R. Haas Papers (Mss.Ms.Coll.94)

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.

Subject: Linguistics
Type:Text
Extent: 75 pages; 47 slips
Description: The Wakashan materials in the ACLS collection consist of materials in the "Wakashan" section of the finding aid assembled by Sapir and Swadesh from earlier fieldwork materials. The materials in this section are all comparative vocabularies and analyses of mutiple Wakashan languages, primarily Nuu-chah-nulth, Kwak'wala, and Ditidaht. Distinction between these languages will be more apparent in the materials in themselves. See also the separate listings in this guide specifically for Ditidaht, Kwakwaka'wakw, and Nuu-chah-nulth materials.
