Mary Rosamond Haas papers

Mss.Ms.Coll.94

Date: Circa 1910-1996 | Size: 95 Linear feet

Abstract

The Mary Rosamond Haas papers are extensive, including correspondence, research notes, field notes, texts, lexical slip files, audio recordings, photographs, reprints and more, covering more than 100 languages of North America and Southeast Asia. Of particular value are notes and audio recordings from fieldwork from the 1930s on Ditidaht, Tunica, Natchez and Muscogee, work toward pedagogical materials for Thai, and groundbreaking comparative studies of several language families of North America.

Background note

Mary Rosamond Haas (1910-1996) was a leading contributor to documentary, historical and comparative linguistics in North America. Born in Richmond, Indiana, she attended Richmond College pursuing her primary love of piano, and at the age of 20 enrolled at the University of Chicago to study comparative philology. There she met her first husband Morris Swadesh, and studied under Edward Sapir, whom she followed to Yale in 1931.

Field trips to Vancouver Island with Morris Swadesh to document Ditidaht texts and songs, and then on her own with speakers of Southeastern languages in Oklahoma and the Gulf States, cemented her transition to an Americanist. Over the course of a decade in the Southeast, she worked with some of the last native and latent speakers of Muskogean languages and linguistic isolates, collecting copious lexica, texts, and grammatical elicitations, and producing extenstive linguistic and ethnographic notes, particulary for the Tunica, Natchez, and Creek languages. Rich and detailed, often with some of the last fluent speakers, many of her notes from this period remain unpublished. Her consultants included Tunica speaker Sesostrie Youchigant, James Hill who wrote notebooks filled with monolingual Creek texts, and Natchez speakers Nancy Raven and Watt Sam whose limited English meant they required a Creek interpreter to communicate with Haas.

Although she was able to secure funding for fieldwork throughout the 1930s, at the beginning of the 1940s she had to leave North American languages for a few years to work on Thai as part of a World War II effort to produce training materials for Southeast Asian languages. Applying the documentary skills she had honed during the 1930s field trips, she worked with a team of native speakers at the University of Michigan, including her second husband Heng Subhanka, with whom she would finally visit Thailand in 1949. Haas' Thai pedagogical materials, dictionary and phonological analysis have stood the test of time and are still widely used today.

As a result of her by then significant Thai expertise, she gained what would become permanent employment at UC Berkeley, where she returned to Native American languages as the first Director of the Survey of California (and Other) Indian Languages. As one of the founders of the linguistics department, she developed a reputation as a talented teacher, training "more Americanist linguists than did Boas and Sapir put together" (in student Karl Teeter's words) who in turn have drastically furthered knowledge of the languages of North America and beyond. These include William Bright, Margaret Langdon, James Crawford, Anthony Woodbury, Ilse Lehiste, among others. From her detailed earlier work on Muskogean and other Southeastern languages, and building on the research of her students and peers, she was able to establish connections and reconstruct proto-languages for families across North America, including lending a valuable voice to the question of Wiyot and Yurok's place in the Algonquian family.

Haas' academic career led to her receiving honorary doctorates from multiple institutions, a Berkeley Citation, membership in the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, presidency of the Linguistic Society of America in 1963, and undertaking several visiting professorships. Her rigorous, expansive and organized approach to research, and her dedication to linguistics into the 1980s, makes for a collection that touches on and contributes to the study of well over a hundred languages of the Americas and Southeast Asia.

Scope and content

Series 1 contains correspondence, ordered alphabetically, with individuals and institutions throughout Haas' life. Series 2 is very large and contains a wide variety of manuscripts divided into individual subseries by language, including broad work on language families, used by Haas as research files. Most of these were created by Haas herself. Series 3 contains mostly biographical sketches of Haas, other scholars, institutions and consultants. Series 4 contains Haas' works as a student and personal affects from her time as a student, lectures by Haas, and various stages of publication of her articles. Series 5 contains teaching materials from the University of California, Berkeley, and Serries 6 contains faculty and student files from the same period. The brief Series 7 contains awards and honors given to Haas, most of which are oversized. Series 8 contains mostly reprints by other authors, often with marginalia by Haas, and some original related materials. Series 9 is very extensive and consists of likely over 100,000 lexical slips, organized by language, with each item containing from 1 to over 2000 slips (the length of one box). Series 10 contains audio recordings, of which the Native American recordings are digitized. Series 11 contains multiple boxes of photographs as well as other miscellaneous media, including some images of Native Americans (see the note below). Series 12 contains sheet music collected by Haas mostly as a teenager, during which time she focused on piano. Finally, Series 13 contains a few miscellaneous personal records.

Native American Images note: Nearly 1,000 photographs, negatives, photomechanical prints, sketches, and maps of primarily British Columbian Nootka and Oklahoman Tunica taken by Haas from 1931-1936 and 1974-1978. Photographs depict native linguistic consultants, particularly Sesostrie Youchigant the last known speaker of Tunica. All other ethnographic images are photomechanical prints of Mayas, Incas, Cree, Pueblo, Creek, and Seminole in published works from 1964-1988. Of note, a 1915 portrait of Tunica Indians, Alice Picoter, Sam Young Sesotrie, Cora Chiki in native attire with head-dresses. Images are housed in Series 11.
