Description: Materials relating to Paul A. W. Wallace's interest in Wyandot (Huron) language, history, and culture. Items include Wallace's 8-page "Who Were the Hurons' Allies of 1615?" in which he concludes that the unnamed allies who were to aid Champlain and the Hurons probably were Susquehannocks; and eighteenth-century missionary Pierre-Philippe Potier's Huron-French vocabulary, from a document possibly in the archives of St. Mary's College, Montreal.
