Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series contains material that supplement Harrington's Alaska and Northwest Coast field notes.

The Aleut file includes several pages of "Aleutian Storilets," a rough draft of an introduction to a grammar, six pages of information on Waldemar Jochelson, an annotated bibliography, and other miscellaneous notes. His Tlingit/Eyak files contain five pages of placename vocabulary from Mrs. Willie Loftus and Mrs. Frank Booth. Additional material relating to Tlingit consists of five pages of heading sheets and notes referring to Harrington's "Salmon Write-up" and a rough sketch and printer's proof of the diagram used on page 3 of his article "Phonematic Daylight in Lhiinkit, Navajo of the North" which was published in the Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences in 1945. Duwamish material consists of "Sounds of the Duwamish Language" presented in a large chart. Chimakum data from Louise Buttner and Clallam data from Emily Webster are included in three pages of miscellaneous notes. The Alea/Suislaw/Coos section contains two pages of notes on travels from Marshfield. Southwest Oregon Athapascan contains a mixture of linguistic and nonlinguistic data from Mark Collson, Coquille Thompson, Larry Frank Fogarty, and Johnny. Harrington's miscellany on Alaska/Northwest Coast consist of a few bibliographic, biographical, linguistic, and ethnographic notes. They mention tribes or languages in Alaska, Washington, or Oregon. The file of Harrington's writings on the Northwest Coast begins with material which was missing from his notes and drafts for the paper "Southern Peripheral Athapaskawan Origins, Divisions, and Migrations." There are a dozen pages under the heading "Nav[ajo] expansion," the last two pages of which are in the hand of Robert W. Young. The file continues with notes to the compositor and lists of corrections to be made to proofs of the article "Pacific Coast Athapascan Discovered to Be Chilcotin" which appeared in the Journal of the Washington Academy of Sciences in 1943. Among the materials which Harrington collected from others are twenty pages in the hand of John Paul Marr who acted as his field assistant in the 1940s. Marr's papers include notes on possible informants on Chinook jargon at Tahola, Washington; a copy of a Chinook word list from Chinook, A History and Dictionary of the Northwest Coast Trade Jargon by Edward H. Thomas; and questionnaires labeled "Words for Indian Use."
