Biographical / Historical:
Stewart Klonis (1901-1989) was a painter and educator who worked primarily in New York.

Stewart Klonis was born on December 24 in Naugatuck, Connecticut and moved to New York City in 1921. He worked for the Guggenheim Brothers Brokerage House and began studying painting at the Art Students League in 1927. In 1934, he joined its twelve-member board. Since he was the only board member with a background in finance, Klonis became the treasurer and managed to balance the books before the league went under. In 1932, Klonis helped found the Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibition. As a student of the league himself, he was often part of the shows.

In 1937, Klonis was elected president of the league before becoming executive director in 1946. During his time spent at the league he succeeded in widening the range of teaching to include abstract art in order to supplement the school's emphasis on figurative painting. In 1980, Klonis retired from his position as executive director.

Stewart Klonis died at the age of 86 in the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn in 1989.

The typescript stories are permanently fastened together and were found separately in catalog [former Number 1694], with no reference to the corresponding autograph document by Gatschet. According to an autograph note by J.N.B. Hewitt on the title page of the typescript document, the stories were recorded by Gatschet and translated by J.P. Dunn. Since it appears that Hewitt was unaware of the autograph document by Gatschet, this may not be correct, but can be checked in the course of reviewing Dunn's Peoria and Miami Manuscripts.

Scope and Contents:
Notes and texts on Stockbridge collected by Truman Michelson during his fieldwork in Wisconsin in 1914, with handwritten copies of his notes made by Frank Speck during the 1940s and 1950s. Michelson's notes consist mainly of vocabularies with small amounts of data on the history, population, and racial composition of the tribe and brief notes on the people who knew the language. A few words were collected from a Brotherton informant. The Stockbridge texts include strict interlineal translations and separate free translations. Speck's copies of the notes are in an order different from Michelson's originals. They are incomplete, in part because Speck omitted some vocabulary items when informants agreed as to their form. Speck's material also includes a copy of the report on Michelson's work in Explorations and field work of the Smithsonian Institution, 1914, pages 90-93 (1 page typescript).

All Stockbridge texts are by Jameson "Sot" Quinney, with some translated by William Dick. Other people that Michelson worked with include Lucius Dick (Brotherton), Edwin Miller, Alfred Miller, Sterling Peters, Agnes Butler (previously cataloged as Agnus Butler), and Bernice Robertson (previously cataloged as Robinson; see note below).
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 2734
Local Note:
Regarding Bernice Robertson's surname: In Michelson's notes, Bernice Robertson's name appears with "Robertson" crossed out and "Robinson" written in. According to Ives Goddard (2007, November 20), "Frank T. Siebert, Jr., collected some words from the same woman in 1935, and he refers to her as Bernice Robertson in notes he sent to Morris Swadesh (APS, Swadesh papers, Freeman Guide #2081 or 2083). I also heard him mention her many times, since he liked to point out that she was one of the last speakers of Mahican even though to look at her she was African American. In his own field notes (1937) Swadesh first wrote Robison and Robeson, but changed this to Robinson. (Robison is a possible mishearing of Roberston, if this name is unfamiliar; less likely that Swadesh would not have caught the common name Robinson.) In his typed list of informants, however, he writes 'Bernice Robertson' (APS as above)."
