Extent: 27 pages
Description: This item consists of handwritten texts on historic and mythic topics written in Wasco-Wishram with English translation on lined loose-leaf paper. The stories were apparently gathered by Peter McGuff; there are also a few personal notes and ethnographic observations sprinkled throughout. The seven stories are designated by teller and by subject as follows: "This story told by an old lady how they went short of provisions some seventy years ago, at the Cascades" (2 pages); "This is parts of the sk!uliyE story that Louie [Simpson] missed, Given by Yaryarone (Wicxam [Wishram])...." (5 pages); "From Sophia Klickitate (age 64) What happened at Cascades before any white person known of in that part of the country...." (2 pages); "From Jane Meachum Age 80 years (Wicxam [Wishram])" (2 pages); "Raccoon, Pheasant, Coyote, and Crow" (7 pages); "Racoon Continued" (3 pages--at the bottom of the third page is a personal note from Pete to Ed asking for feedback on the quality of the work and noting that he can't make a living from it unless Ed makes a guarantee of steady work); and "from anEwikus age 65" (6 pages). Louis "Louie" Simpson and Peter "Pete" McGuff were both Wishram language consultants who worked with Edward Sapir; Sapir described them in Sapir (1909), and Michael Silverstein discussed them both in Natural Histories of Discourse (1996), a volume co-edited by Silverstein and Greg Urban.

Description: The Walter Dyk Collection consists of 16 folders relating to Dyk's dissertation research on Wishram, 1930-1933, donated to the APS by Dell Hymes in the 1980s (with additions transferred from the Dell H. Hymes Papers in 2019). It includes copies of his masters thesis (Chicago, 1931) and dissertation (Yale, 1933), papers and notes sent to Dell Hymes in the mid-1950s when Hymes was working on the language, including two field notebooks, Hymes' plans for use of these and other materials, and a small but important set of correspondence. The correspondence includes letters to Dyk from Philip Kahclamet, who was Dyk's primary consultant for "Kikct" (which Kahclamet identifies as a broad term for several related varieties), and who later worked with Hymes; from Edward Sapir to Dyk, including a very long and detailed letter commenting on phonology in Dyk's dissertation; and a series of letters to Sapir from Peter McGuff, Sapir's Wishram consultant at Fort Simcoe, Washington, 1906-1908. Sapir described him in Sapir (1909), and Michael Silverstein discussed him in Natural Histories of Discourse (1996), a volume co-edited by Silverstein and Greg Urban.
