Historical information: Eero Vihman (1927-2000) was a linguist who specialized in the study of Pomoan languages. He left his native Estonia in 1944, arriving in the United States in 1952. In 1964 he joined the graduate program in linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley, conducting fieldwork on Northern and Central Pomo in 1966-1967.
Scope and content: The Papers document Vihman's research on Pomoan languages from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s, notably field notes from his 1966-1967 work on Northern Pomo. His main Northern Pomo consultants were Annie Lake and Edna Guerrero, with some additional material provided by Angelina Campbell; he also collected Central Pomo material from Frances Jack. Also included in the collection are Vihman's comparative notes on other Pomoan languages compiled from a variety of sources, and several draft chapters of a grammar of Northern Pomo.
