Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Southern California/Basin series contains John P. Harrington's research on Cupeno. One group of his field notes consists of information elicited from Martin J. Blacktooth in Los Angeles, March 1915. The vocabulary is arranged on slips in semantic order in Cupeno and English. One section lists names of objects of material culture in English only. A small number of slips contain information on phonetics and morphology. The other set of notes are from placename trips. Between August 1925 and February 1926, Harrington conducted a number of field trips accompanied by speakers of various "Mission Indian" languages. The Cupeno information was apparently obtained between October 5 and 15, 1925, contributed mainly by Francisco Laws, Manuel Chuparosa, and Marcelino Cahuish. Other Cupeno sources were Chuparosa's wife, Juan Chutnikat, Bernardo Segundo, Victoria, Joe Cales, Manuel Tortes, and Jack Mack. Vocabulary from the placename trips in the Aguanga, Hemet, and Pala areas are found in notebooks and on loose pages. Other placenames identified were Coyote Canyon, Palm Canyon, and Torres. There are four notebooks, three of which contain both Cupeno and Diegueno. The loose pages consist of sketches and small amounts of local biography and ethnography conversation. The subseries also contains a two-age typescript of the Migration Legend in English.

Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Notes and writings on special linguistic studies series contains material that supplement John P. Harrington's Southern California/Basin field notes. There are materials on the Chumash, Gabrielino, Cahuilla, Luiseno/Juaneno, Chemehuevi, Diegueno, and Washo.

His Chumash files consist of mixed Barbareno biographical and linguistic notes, notes on the rehearing of Harrington's Ineseno dictionary, the beginning of a translation from the 1920s as well as some miscellaneous Barbareno vocabulary, a copy of Scouler's Obispeno vocabulary, and notes referring to the informant for H. W. Henshaw's Santa Rosa vocabulary (B.A.E. ms. 296). The Gabrielino section contains data on placenames which Harrington extracted from Reid's vocabulary in the California Farmer and from Alfred L. Kroeber's article "Notes on the Shoshonean Dialects of Southern California." There are also ten miscellaneous slips illustrating various points of grammar with simple sentences. There are five pages of Cahuilla vocabulary from the multilingual informant Adan Castillo. For Luiseno/Juaneno there are two pages of information on Rancho Neguil. From the early group of Chemehuevi notes is a page numbered 129, a missing sheet from the set of field notes which Harrington's wife Carobeth obtained from Annie Laird (See Chemehuevi subseries in Southern California/Basin series). There are also notes on geographical information. Diegueno material consists of the record of a placename trip which Harrington made with Angel Quilpe to a location identified as "Los Templos," probably around 1925. Notes on the site include textual descriptions and sketch maps with indications of mileage and photographs taken. Other places mentioned en route are Salt Creek, Salt Canyon, San Pedro, and Aguaje de Martinez. The bulk of Washo file consists of field notes which Harrington obtained from Verna Porterfield on February 27, 1915. He recorded a few notes on the phonetics of the language, a basic vocabulary (natural, anatomical, and relationship terms, and words for animals and numbers), and several simple sentences. Information from Mr. Bailey which includes references to Carson Indian School in Stewart, Nevada, and give summaries of two myths. In addition, there are five typed pages of Paiute, Washo, and Shoshoni ornithological terms which Harrington extracted from the record of the U.S. Geological Exploration of the Fortieth Parallel, 1877.

The subseries also contains general and miscellaneous materials, notes on collections of artifacts, records relating to music, notes from conversations, and notes on secondary sources.

Miscellaneous materials on southern California were accumulated during the 1920s. They include a sketchy outline for a proposed study of California Indian placenames. His rough notes for the write-up contain summaries of early fieldwork (1912 -1921) from which he planned to extract data, ideas for illustrations, lists of "things to do," and comments on plans for future work to complete the project. Additional miscellany includes a printed caption with Mohave and Chemehuevi names (photograph not located and intended use not known), rough tracings of several maps, and notes regarding letters from Dr. Arthur De Jacoby and Elmer J. Dawson.

His notes on artifacts include information from George Heye and others regarding artifacts from the Burton Mound site in Santa Barbara, California, which Harrington had helped to excavate. There is also information which Harrington obtained during discussions with a Mr. James who collected a variety of artifacts at Salisbury Canyon, Oak Spring burial, Round Corral Cave, and other locations near his home. There are several references to photographs which Harrington made of the objects; these are on file in the N.A.A. The third group of notes was made during a visit to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology. Almost all of the references are to specimens which Dr. Stephen Bowers collected in 1885 from San Martin Cave in Los Angeles County, California.

There are three types of material relating to music in California. There is an undated form letter from Charles F. Lummis enclosing a prospectus of a proposal to publish "Spanish Songs of Old California." This is followed notes on Indian music and jazz. which Harrington probably obtained from Frances Densmore. The bulk of the file contains records relating to a proposal for collecting and publishing California Indian songs. The work was to be undertaken by ethnomusicologist Helen H. Roberts with the assistance of Harrington under the auspices of the Community Arts Association of Santa Barbara, California, and the resulting book was to be published by Yale University Press.

The section of notes from conversations contains brief records from a number of interviews with colleagues and nonlinguistic informants. They range in date from 1925 to 1936.

Baja California (Mexico : Peninsula)
Date:
1913-1933
Scope and Contents:
This subseries of the Southern California/Basin series contains John P. Harrington's research on Diegueno. The records have been subdivided somewhat arbitrarily into U.S. and Baja groupings with a different set of Diegueno speakers in each area. Several dialects are mentioned but in general those in the Campo area refer to the U.S. Diegueno and those in the La Huerta area are Baja Diegueno. Harrington accumulated data through trips accompanied by several native speakers. He rode through the coastal areas between San Diego and the Mexican border, and from the border as far south as Guerrero Negro. Except for a section of slips extracted from his notes and later reheard, and an account of Angel Quilpe (also referred to as An., Quilp, Quirp, Kwirp) building a house, Harrington's Diegueno material remain a potpourri of linguistic and ethnographic data as originally recorded in the field. The largest set of original field notes are from his travels about the Mesa Grande and Santa Isabel areas and relate predominantly to placenames. Rough sketch maps accompany some of the notes. Amongst his Baja files is a notebook containing placenames and some vocabulary recorded by Harrington's guide, Teofilo Guadalupe Silvas, who lived in the Ensenada area. This subseries also contains small notebooks with additional Diegueno data from Baja, and to a lesser extent, the U.S. The notes are sketchy, consisting mainly of references to people and places as far south as Guerrero Negro. There are some Cupeno words and phrases. In addition, there is a brief set of slips organized into semantic categories with linguistic and ethnographic information provided by Isidro Nejo and Edward H. Davis.
