Description: Pawnee materials in the Floyd Lounsbury Papers mostly concern semantic analysis of their kinship system as documented by Lewis Henry Morgan in Genoa, Nebraska, which Lounsbury published as an article titled "A Semantic Analysis of the Pawnee Kinship Usage" in the journal Language. An offprint of this with marginalia and notes can be found in Series II, Kinship subseries. In the same subseries see folders "Measures of Kinship Distance", "Miscellaneous Notes" (which contains the kinship terms from Morgan), and "Pawnee" (which includes kinship terms from others). Series III contains "Key to Morgan. On Pawnee" and "Miscellaneous linguistic and semantic notes resulting from early stages of Pawnee paper". Most relevant correspondence (Series I) concerns reprinting the article, but notable other correspondence on Pawnee is with Grace, Haas, Lane, Lesser, and Schneider.
