William O. Bright Papers

Mss.Ms.Coll.142

Date: 1949-2006 | Size: 47 Linear feet

Abstract

The William O. Bright papers consist particularly of extensive correspondence relating mostly to his later academic work, a number of field notebooks from North America and India, publications on and by Indigenous North Americans (especially Karuk and other Californian tribes) and from linguistic societies, his own research and publications, and extensive lexical slip files (especially on Karuk, Spanish borrowings, and copies of Daythal Kendall's Takelma and Kalapuyan files). Many audio recordings are also present, some of which are duplicates of those at the California Language Archive. In addition to the materials browsable through the finding aid, Bright's email correspondence and computer files can be accessed onsite at the APS. William Bright's career extended to a wide variety of linguistic work, including Native Californian languages and literatures, Native American place names, editorships of major linguistics journals, and writing systems of the world.

Background note

The first outsider to become an honorary member of the Karuk tribe, William O. Bright (1928-2006) was a highly successful and dedicated linguist specializing in languages of California, wider North America, and South Asia. A student of Mary Haas at the University of California, Berkeley, Bright began working with the Karuk at the age of 21 and published a grammar as a result of his PhD thesis in 1957. Bright continued to work on Karuk throughout his entire life, eventually publishing a dictionary with the tribe and Susan Gehr shortly before his passing. He also contributed to a number of pedagogical resources.

William Bright spent 29 years at UCLA, beginning shortly after acquiring his PhD. In 1988 he moved to the University of Colorado, Boulder. One of his research areas with a particularly wide scope was the publication of several books on Indigenous place names of the United States, specifically of California, the American southwest, Colorado, and one of the United States as a whole.

In addition to Karuk, he conducted fieldwork of many languages of California including (but not limited to) Yurok, Kumeyaay, Shasta, Wiyot and Hupa, in addition to work on mostly Dravidian languages of India, as well as Kaqchikel and Nahuatl. He also collected a large lexical slip file of borrowings from Spanish into Native American languages.

William Bright was widely renowned by fellow scholars, as exemplified by his editorships of Language (the journal of the Linguistic Society of America, of which he also served as president in 1989), and later Language in Society and Written Language and Literacy. Among his edited and authored books, in addition to those on place names, were those on Coyote tales, the field of linguistics, poetry, Californian languages, and the world's writing systems.

During his time in California, Bright collected a wide range of small publications produced by Californian tribes - particularly the Karuk - as well as pamphlets and books concerning typography, another interest of his. In addition to journal editorships he was heavily engaged with conferences and societies of the languages of the Americas.

Scope and content

Series 1 contains Bright's research files arranged by author, and includes correspondence with individuals and institutions, printed materials, and works by others. Series 2 contains research files arranged by topic - typically language or region - with particular focus on Karuk, other languages and cultures of California, and India. Series 2 also contains academic journals and materials relating to Bright's interest in typography. Series 3 contains some of Bright's field notebooks, divided into subseries on languages of the Americas and of India (although there is some overlap).

Series 4 contains works produced by Bright, both published and unpublished, again including born-digital files accessible onsite. Series 5 contains index cards, including languages he worked with, Spanish loanwords into Native American languages ("Hispanisms"), and copies of Daythal Kendall's Kalapuya and Takelma files. Series 6 contains extensive audio recordings in many formats, mostly of Karuk, available in the Digital Library. Series 7 contains obituaries and condolences received after Bright's passing, and Series 8 contains a small number of personal records. Digital files of William Bright's emails and computer are additionally accessible onsite, and as of November 2018 there are additional born-digital materials to be processed.
