Mss.497.3.B63c

Date: 1853, 1882-1959 | Size: 80 Linear feet

Abstract

For many years referred to as the "Franz Boas Collection of American Indian Linguistics," this collection consists of a large body of linguistic and ethnographic material gathered together by Boas and many of his colleagues and students primarily from the 1890s to the 1940s. It contains the bulks of Boas's own fieldwork material, with the main exception of most of his Inuit and earliest Northwest Coast fieldwork. It contains the majority of the work sponsored by American Council of Learned Societies Committee on Native American Languages, which was directed by Franz Boas, Edward Sapir, Alfred Kroeber, and other academic linguists from 1927-1937. The collection, however, also contains related kinds of fieldwork and derived secondary materials created outside the auspices of this Committee, both earlier and later. The first deposit of the material arrivied in 1945. Subsequently, additional related materials were donated and added, as noted in the listings. Additionally, the documentary materials produced by some of the early projects (1945 to circa 1955) of the APS Phillips Fund for Native American Research were added to this collection. The collection has grown to over 80 linear feet of material representing at least 166 languages and dialects from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The formats range from field notes and ethnographic texts to slip files, vocabularies, lexica, and grammars, and dozens of linguists and Native consultants are represented.

Background note

Formed in 1927 under the initiative of Franz Boas, Edward Sapir, and other academic linguists, the Committee on Native American Languages of the American Council of Learned Societies was charged with documenting the endangered languages of indigenous Americans. Wielding grants to encourage research, the Committee was chaired by Boas and staffed by Manuel J. Andrade, Jaime de Angulo, Roland B. Dixon, Pliny E. Goddard, Bernard Haile, John P. Harrington, Harry Hoijer, Melville Jacobs, Diamond Jenness, Alfred V. Kidder, Alfred L. Kroeber, Truman Michelson, Frans M. Olbrechts, Gladys A. Reichard, Frank G. Speck, Edgar H. Sturtevant, Morris Swadesh, and John R. Swanton, among others.

Scope and content

The Collection of the American Council of Learned Socities Committee of Native American Languages is one of the largest and most significant primary resources for study of the indigenous languages of North America. Beginning with the creation of the Committee in 1927, and periodically added to since by the APS, the collection has grown to over 80 linear feet of material representing at least 166 languages and dialects from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. The formats range from field notes and ethnographic texts to slip files, vocabularies, lexica, and grammars, and dozens of linguists and Native consultants are represented. Although most of the material was collected in the 1920s and 1930s, a signficant number of items have been added that extends the range of dates represented backward into the 1880s and forward in the late 1950s.

Includes notes and manuscripts of Franz Boas; materials solicited by and sent to Boas from field workers and native informants; manuscripts submitted for publication in the International Journal of American Linguistics (1917-1939); manuscripts resulting from research supported by the Committee on American Native Languages of the American Council of Learned Societies (1927-1937); papers of anthropologists and linguists associated with Boas and Edward Sapir; reports and other materials resulting from Phillips Fund grants made by the APS.

During the 1940s, the ACLS collection was arranged by language (and language family) by C. F. Voegelin and Zellig S. Harris, who also listed a significant quantity of miscellaneous non-linguistic material. Their index was published in a supplement to Language 21, 3 (1945). Among the non-linguistic material not indexed by Voegelin and Harris are data on folklore, mythology, and general ethnology, with some emphasis on African Americans, Africans, and the work of Boas's colleagues in Russia.

Since its arrival in Philadelphia, the APS has periodically added additional material to the collection. Among the more notable additions are some highly important field notes and other material donated by Alfred Kroeber in 1946 relating to early research (1902-1910) on California Athabascan languages (Chilula, Hupa, Kato, Mattole, Nongatl, Pomo, Sinkyoke, Tolowa, Wailaki, and Whilkut), and a suite of manuscripts by Edward Sapir presented by his family and colleagues in 1972. A number of individual linguists have also contributed individually to the collection, including Edward Ahenakew, Morris Swadesh, Kenneth Croft, Norman A. McQuown, Gordon Marsh, and C. F. Voegelin.

This finding aid is intended to parallel the online Indigenous Subject Guide. The materials in this finding aid are arranged according to language, dialect, cultural group, or region, and then by call number. When applicable, references to microfilm versions are included at the end of the entry.

Native American Images Note : Nearly 1,700 images images in linguistic notebooks and accompanying documents collected from 1900-1940. Black and white silver gelatin photographs and sketch drawings by Native consultants given to ethnologists such as Franz Boas, Edward Sapir, and Jaime de Angulo. Pencil sketches of clothing, utensils, musical instruments, decorative patterns, weapons, and totem figures of primarily Salish, Nootka, and Quileute tribes. Of particular interest, color pencil sketches of Bella Bella (Heiltsuk) masks. Numerous Nuu-chah-nulth paintings are also of note. In oversize, a linguistic map of the southern part of Hecate Strait, British Columbia, Canada. Most of the images are original with some photographs from the Anthropology Division of the Geological Survey of Canada. Note: Folders containing images are noted in the inventory.

Digital objects note

This collection contains digital materials that are available in the APS Digital Library. Links to these materials are provided with context in the inventory of this finding aid. A general listing of digital objects may also be found here.

African American History Note

There are at least two items in this collection which may be of interest to scholars of African American history:

Hurston, Zora Neale. " The Florida Expedition (#46)." n.d. 3 pages. Brief report by a student of Franz Boas on fieldwork in Florida studying African American folklore, story-telling, religion, and common-held beliefs. Hurston notes that "the bulk of the population now spends its leisure in motion picture theatres or with the phonograph and its blues."

King, Louis E. " Negro life in a rural community (#49)." Circa 1931. 166 pages. Anthropological dissertation study of African American life in a rural community during the years 1927-1931. The work is divided into several sections: Background, Family Life, Breadwinning and Shelter, Education, Activities of the Group, Leaving Home, and Comparing Life in Different Rural Communities..

Olbrechts, Frans M., 1899-1958.
Ethiopic and Cherokee syllabaries -- a case of parallelism
n.d.TMs, 8L.I2.1

A formal paper with MS. corrections. The author finds the syllabaries similar in principle, but different in intent; the Ethiopic is a complication of the Minaeo-Sabaean, while the Cherokee is an attempt at simplification. Phonetic equivalences of the two syllabaries are arranged tabularly at the end. Freeman and Smith 682
