Daythal L. Kendall Papers

Mss.Ms.Coll.148

Date: 1898-2012 1974-2008 | Size: 17.5 Linear feet

Abstract

The Daythal L. Kendall papers consist of a wide variety of published and unpublished work on especially Takelma, Kalapuyan languages, and Lencan languages. A linguist and computer scientist, Kendall devoted much time to synchronic and diachronic linguistics of Takelma and the Penutian stock, including much research on Takelma poetic forms, Kalapuyan morphology and gathering a large unpublished lexicon for Lencan languages. He also produced pedagogical materials for learning Canadian Aboriginal syllabics, and worked twice for the American Philosophical Society to develop their understanding of their Native American collections. In the papers are correspondence, extensive research and manuscripts on the above, collected materials from others including many handouts from conferences (particularly the Society for the Study of the Indigenous Languages of the Americas), lexical slips, and photographs of Native Oregonians and their land.

Background note

Daythal L. Kendall is perhaps best known for extensive research on Takelma, particularly his analysis of its poetic form and identifying connections between Takelma and other languages falling under the Penutian stock of language families.

Kendall obtained a PhD from the University of Pennsylvania in 1977 under supervisor Dell Hymes, producing a dissertation titled "A Syntactic Analysis of Takelma Texts". This was based on existing texts recorded by Edward Sapir, as well as his own fieldwork in Oregon, where he established a decades-long relationship with members of the Kentta family.

Directly after receiving his doctorate, he accepted a short-term position at Brandon University, Manitoba, Canada, to teach varieties of Cree. In doing so he produced a large set of pedagogical materials for learning Canadian Aboriginal syllabics, complementing Paul Voorhis' phrasebooks developed prior to Kendall's arrival. He also worked for the American Philosophical Society around this time, producing a supplement to the Native American Subject Guide reflecting an updated understanding of the APS' materials.

He would return to work on Takelma for a few more years before obtaining a second degree at the University of Pennsylvania, this time an MSE, and spending the majority of the remainder of his career at Unisys, an information technology company in Pennsylvania. With this employment, Kendall's attention was drawn away from endangered languages until the early 1990s, when he applied his computational linguistics skills to Lencan languages of Honduras and El Salvador, developing large lexica and interlinearizations that were never published.

Kendall was very active in the Penutian workshops held at the University of Oregon in 1994, engaging vigorously in comparative linguistics and developing a working relationship with Canadian linguist Marie-Lucie Tarpent, known for her work on Tsimshianic languages. Together they presented a paper on the lack of evidence for a close relationship between Takelma and Kalapuyan languages.

Derived from published works and field notebooks, Kendall worked throughout the 2000s on particularly the morphology of several Kalapuyan languages. Throughout his life he produced small lexical slip files for these and a much larger one for Takelma, the most complete set of which eventually went to Californian linguist William Bright (see the William O. Bright papers). Concentrating once again on Takelma in the mid-to-late 2000s, Kendall returned to Oregon, and was in the middle of producing much more extensive research into, and presentations of, Takelma poetic texts. During this time he also returned to work for the American Philosophical Society on a project to survey the extent and significance of images of the archive's Indigenous North Americans, a role he would fulfil until his untimely passing in 2008.

Scope and content

Series 1 consists of correspondence, divided into correspondence relating to Kendall's work at the American Philosophical Society and elsewhere. Series 2 consists of Kendall's personal research notes, much of which is loosely connected handwritten notes, but includes notably a large lexicon of Lencan languages. Series 3 consists of draft versions of published and unpublished works by Kendall. In addition to much on Takelma and other Penutian languages that was published, this includes unpublished materials on Kalapuyan languages, a collection of Takelma poetic texts (both from mid-late 2000s), and pedagogical materials on Canadian Aboriginal syllabics from the 1970s. Series 4 consists of works as a student. Series 5 consists of works by others in unpublished formats, especially by Marie-Lucie Tarpent and Paul Voorhis. Series 6 consists of printed materials by others, including a great many reprints of articles, copies of the SSILA newsletters and bulletins, copies of Edward Sapir's Takelma texts (some with marginalia by Kendall), and a large volume of Siletz-related materials collected by Verna Kentta, among other items. Series 7 contains handouts and other ephemera from conferences, most notably the Penutian workshops of the 1990s that Kendall participated in, as well as meetings of the American Anthropological Association and SSILA throughout Kendall's career. Series 8 contains lexical slips and bibliographies, including Kalapuya and Takelma, much relating to his analysis of others' fieldnotes and texts. Series 9 contains photographs, the majority of which are of Takelma land and baskets. Finally, Series 10 contains a few personal records, including his resume.
