Chehalis | Puyallup
Date: 1882, circa 1890; 1897, 1927-1936
Type:Text
Extent: 1800+ loose pages, 15 notebooks, circa 8000 slips
Description: The Chehalis materials in the ACLS collection consist of a large volume of material spread across numerous items in the "Chehalis" section of the finding aid. Major items of significance include Boas's 14 Upper Chehalis field notebooks (item S2c.1), recorded in 1927 near Oakville, Washington, containing vocabulary, paradigms, and texts with interlinear translations. Additional loose notes (item S2c.4) contains numerous stories, which partially derive from the field notebooks. Also noteworthy is an extensive lexical file of over 8,000 slips (item S2c.2) derived from Boas's field work, partially arranged and analyzed. Earlier materials relating to the Lower Chehalis dialect were recorded circa 1890 by Boas at Shoalwater Bay, as well as material copied from Myron Eells' 1880s field work and later corrected by Boas (items S2b.1, S2c.5 and S2c.6). Other smaller items, such as Aginsky's comparison of Upper Chehalis and Puyallup (item S.9), consist primarily of linguistic analysis and some ethnographic information. The names of Chehalis speakers and consultants who made the work across these items possible are not fully reflected in the cataloging, as many are typically not identified by Boas.
