Prominent materials in this section includes Swanton's typescript draft versions of Haida stories from both Masset and Skidegate, recorded in 1900-1902 (items N1.4 and N1.5). These versions are in Haida only, with some handwritten annotations, corrections, and English titles. Many were published, though not all. Notably, these manuscript include the Haida version of stories published in English only in Swanton's "Haida Texts and Myths--Skidegate dialect". Also included in this section are lexical files by Boas, Sapir and an unidentified author derived from Boas and Swanton's materials (items N1.1, N1.2 and N1.7). In the "Athapaskan" section of the finding aid, see Sapir's "Comparative Na-Dene dictionary" (item Na20a.3), which includes extensive Haida material. In the "Chinook" section of the finding aid, see Boas' "Field notes on Chinookan and Salishan languages and Gitamat, Molala, and Masset" (item Pn4b.5), which includes vocabularies recorded in 1890, likely in Victoria, from a Haida speaker from Masset. In the "Tlingit" section of the finding aid, see Swanton's "Tlingit and Haida word list" (item N2.1) including Haida vocabulary recorded at Howkan, Klinkwan, and Kassan.
