Most of the correspondence in the collection is written in Visayan, the language spoken within the southernmost islands of Luzon in the Philippines.

Andres Salle Casinas

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1912-1980, undated
Scope and Contents:
The series primarily contains 1935 and 1936 Philippine Observer newspapers, a Selective Service card, materials relating to the fraternal organization Legionarios del Trabajo, and other ephemera. The materials document the life of Casinas while residing in Stockton, California from the 1930s. The materials from the Legionarios del Trabajo emphasize his dedication to the membership of the fraternity. The newspapers are both in the English and Tagalog languages, containing international and local news, as well as announcements regarding the Legionarios del Trabajo. The Selective Service card documents Andres' registration date, residential address, and physical features, providing some personal details about Andres. The materials serve as a primary source for historical information in the 1930s as well as understanding the social, political, or cultural landscape of the time. Materials are arranged in chronological order.
Biographical / Historical:
Andres Salle Casinas was born on March 11, 1902, in Duero, Bohol, Philippine Islands. * The historical record provides no details of Andres' early life, except that the highest education he had completed was the 6th grade. Although Andres had a limited education, he was able to read and write. The exact date of when Andres left the Philippines is unknown. However, according to the Index to Alien Case File, on February 15, 1924, Andres arrived in San Francisco, California. Like many young Filipino men, who emigrated to California, Andres worked in the fields of Sacramento and San Joaquin, California, working 60 hours per week. According to the 1930 and 1940 Federal Census, with an income of $720 as stated on the 1940 Federal Census, Andres barely made enough money to be able to afford his own residence, resulting in his lodging and sharing the same place with twenty-one other Filipino immigrant workers and their families. By 1940, Andres moved to Stockton, San Joaquin, California. On February 15, 1942, he enlisted for the World War II Draft, where at this time, he was unemployed, stood 5 feet and 3 inches tall, and weighed 137 pounds. Andres was not only hard-working but also a community-minded person. He was a member of the fraternal organization, Legionarios del Trabajo, specifically affiliated with the Daguhoy Lodge No. 528. The Legionarios del Trabajo played a crucial role in advocating for the rights and welfare of laborers during a period of significant social and economic change. On September 18, 1973, at the age of 71, Andres Salle Casinas passed away in Stockton, California.

Date:
circa 1902-circa 1947
Scope and Contents:
This subseries is part of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series in the John P. Harrington papers. His research on non-American languages are gathered here in an alphabetically arranged file. His notes cover African languages, Ainu, Anglo-Saxon, Aramaic, Bulgarian, Burushaski, Chinese, Danish, English, French, Gaelic, Georgian, German, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Icelandic, Indic languages, Indo-European languages, Italian, Kurdish, Latin, Lithuanian, Persian, Polish, Russian, Semitic languages, Siamese, Slavic languages, Tagalog, Tamil, Tungus, Turkish, Ural-Altaic languages, Welsh, and Yiddish.The records contain a wide variety of materials, derived largely from secondary sources. There are bibliographic references, library request slips, and reading notes, as well as photostats and some printed matter. Also included are vocabulary lists, phonetic tables, texts, charts of linguistic relationships, notes from interviews, and copies of related correspondence. For the most part notes for any given language are scanty (from one to ten pages) and highly miscellaneous. His notes on Aramaic and Persian, however, are somewhat more organized and considerably more substantial, comprising several hundred pages each. Notes, largely on phonetics, that he obtained from his research at the New York Public Library and Columbia University account for a sizeable percentage of this subseries.
Biographical / Historical:
By far the major focus of John P. Harrington's linguistic studies was the numerous languages of North, Central, and South America. Over the course of his career, however, he amassed perhaps several thousand pages on other world languages.

Harrington studied classical and Indo-European languages at Stanford University from 1902 to 1905 and during his graduate work in Germany from 1905 to 1907. In the early years after his return to the United States he made a study on "The Frequency of French Sounds" and did comparisons between vowel sounds in French, Italian, Portuguese, and English.

Harrington's interest in many world languages was renewed in the early 1920s when he became friends with Paul Vogenitz, a translator in the Division of Foreign Mails at the Post Office Department. Vogenitz, a student mainly of European languages, urged Harrington to attend the language classes which he took from time to time. Although Harrington was not in a position to do this, the two men corresponded frequently in German, Spanish, Russian, and Nahuatl among other languages. Vogenitz also shared much of his knowledge with Harrington by preparing grammatical exercises, word lists, and phonetic summaries. Among the languages for which he provided this type of information are Ainu, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Persian, Russian, Turkish, and Yiddish.

From February through April 1923, Harrington corresponded with T. T. Waterman regarding the latter's plan to prepare a map of the linguistic families of the world. Probably because of their proposed collaboration, Harrington made a trip to New York City in March. On this occasion he made use of secondary sources at the New York Public Library and Columbia University.

As a result of Harrington's interest in Arabic influences on the Spanish spoken in the American southwest, he began his study of Persian in 1928 in "an attempt toward transliterating into an international phonetic script the Calcutta version of the quatrains attributed to Omar Khayyam."

During the 1930s Harrington collaborated with Moses Steinberg and George M. Lamsa in the translation and reinterpretation of various religious texts in Aramaic, such as the Talmud and the Gospels.

Harrington also collected data on a wide variety of languages from approximately 1940 to 1947 while he was at work on a treatise titled "Linguistics." At this time he added material to his files on Latin, Greek, and the Celtic, eastern European, and Indic languages.
