Scope and Contents:
Formerly described as above ("Conjugation of 213 verbs in at least three tenses") but catalogued with northwestern Shoshoni vocabulary Number 835-a and assumed to be Shoshoni. Apparently Ute, however, by spot comparison with verbs in Ute vocabulary Number 828-b. Apparently this is the manuscript listed by Pilling (1st A. R., Bureau of American Ethnology, 1881), page 573 as "Conjugation of Ute Verbs, 438 11., 4 ." The figure of 213 verbs is as given on the former catalog card and has not been verified (5/67).

Scope and Contents:
This collection is comprised of oral history interviews of Dr. Alexander Leighton and Dr. Jane Murphy, conducted by Dr. Willow Powers in 2002 and funded by the Wenner-Gren Foundation's Historical Archives Program. The collection includes recordings of the interviews on 5 audiocassettes, interview transcripts, permission forms, correspondence relating to the interview, and background information collected in preparation for the interview.
Biographical / Historical:
In 1948, Dr. Alexander Leighton initiated the "Stirling County Study," a post-war longitudinal study of the distribution and amount of mental illness in a general population, and one of the first to do so within the framework of epidemiology. When Dr. Leighton retired from Harvard in 1975, Dr. Jane Murphy, who had been a member of the study since 1951, assumed directorship of the study. Dr. Murphy and Dr. Leighton also conducted numerous cross-cultural studies of mental illness, keeping anthropological ideas as central ingredients in their research.
