Floyd Glenn Lounsbury papers, ca. 1935-1998


Date: Circa 1935-1998 | Size: 90 Linear Feet


The papers contain correspondence, research and teaching notes, data (card and slip) files, published and unpublished manuscripts by Lounsbury and others, books and reprints, sound recordings, and computer programs and files. Correspondents include: William N. Fenton, Mary R. Haas, William C. Sturtevant, Morris Swadesh, and Carl F. Voegelin. Roughly one-quarter of the collection relates to Iroquoian languages and includes much WPA Oneida Project material. Research into the Cherokee language, South American languages, and kinship structures is also well represented. Floyd Lounsbury's wife, Masako Yokoyama Lounsbury, is represented by a smaller amount of material relating to linguistic research in Shanghai.

Background note

A Wisconsin native, Lounsbury completed his undergraduate education at the University of Wisconsin - Madison, and took an MA degree there. He then went to Yale University and was awarded a Ph.D. for work on Oneida phonology and morphology in 1949. While in the Ph.D. program he started teaching, and remained at Yale for the rest of his career. Retiring in 1979, Lounsbury was appointed Sterling Professor Emeritus of Anthropology, a post he held until his death at age 84.

Influenced by his graduate advisor, Morris Swadesh, Lounsbury undertook (1939-1940) the WPA-funded Oneida Language and Folklore Project, Green Bay, Wisconsin. This work eventually culminated in his MA thesis and dissertation. Lounsbury undertook pioneering work in descriptive and comparative Iroquoian linguistics, and made very significant contributions to the decipherment of Maya hieroglyphic texts. He was also an important innovator in the formal analysis of kinship terminologies and structural semantics. Fieldwork was conducted among the Oneida and all other speakers of surviving Iroquoian languages, Natchez, two Mayan and six Brazilian Indian languages. Lounsbury was a fellow of the National Academy of Sciences (1969), and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1976) and American Philosophical Society (1987).

Scope and content

Works by Lounsbury are found in multiple series, throughout the collection.

Native American Images note : Just over 1,200 black and white photomechanical prints; black and white silver gelatin photographs; color, ink, and pencil sketches; and color illustrations of Mayan glyphs and Inca ethnological images from 1958-1995. Collected by Lounsbury to support his linguistic research, glyphic prints are from Mayan codices and stelae. In works by others, the South American series includes images of Inca calendars, Waimiri-Atroari Indian customs, and Quechua pottery from the Andes region. Of note, the Dresden Codex contains glyphs reproduced from the original color tracings. Check the inventory with detailed descriptions of each folder.
