General:
CDR copy FW-ASCH-7RR-0850 is entitled, "Out My Window;" recorded and narrated by Tony Schwartz, it presents the sounds to be heard outside the front and back windows of Tony's reconverted brownstone house in the middle of Manhattan, on a typical day. His front window faces a residential street while the the back window faces a courtyard, schoolyard and church. An incredible variety of sounds is to be heard, including children, cats, dogs, fog whistle, street repair, construction, a woman hanging out clothes, jets overhead, an air-raid siren (which apparently inspired local dogs to bark and howl), garbage trucks, etc. Among the more interesting sounds were street vendors, a pitchman selling knife sharpeners, kids beating out rhythms on car fenders and mailboxes, a Spanish gospel song, a parade with marching band, a local politician explaining why he should be elected and a street musician playing jazz on a saxophone. Tony Schwartz recorded 11 albums for Folkways, none labelled "Out My Window." However, about half the albums contain sounds along the lines of what is on this tape. Conceivably, some of the sounds from this tape were used on the recordings, although I couldn't readily confirm that. Perhaps this tape was submitted to Folkways as a prototype for an additional album which wasn't produced.

Biographical / Historical:
George Bushotter (1864-1892), or Oteri, was a Teton Lakota born in Dakota Territory to a Yankton man and his wife Grey Whirlwind, a Minneconjou Lakota. Raised to be a warrior, Bushotter nevertheless left to study at the Hampton Institute in Virginia from 1878-1881. He entered the Theological Seminary of Virginia in 1885 to become a minister, but his inadequate knowledge of English made the study of Latin and Greek incredibly difficult for him. At the advice of the faculty, Bushotter left the seminary in 1887. While at Hampton, he met Rev. James Owen Dorsey and recognized the potential in working with him to complete ethnographic studies, and worked with the BAE for approximately ten months in 1887. His primary contributions were in the comparative linguistics of Teton Lakota, writing myths and other texts in Lakota, and assisting Dorsey in creating the synonomy of Lakota tribal names that formed a major part of what was to become the Handbook of North American Indians North of Mexico. For more information on George Bushotter, see American Indian Intellectuals, ed. Margot Liberty, 1978.
