    • Collection number: 2016-04
    • Language: Mam
    • Dates: 1968
    • Extent: 2 reels
    • Historical information: The two reels that were digitized to produce the six WAV files in this collection were found in the studio cabinet of the Berkeley Language Center. The only associated information was written on one of the two reel boxes; this information has been extracted to the non-bracketed names of items and to the date fields of those items. The voices of two native English-speaking researchers are heard in the recordings, with at least two different native speakers of Mam. Location information was extrapolated from a mention in 2016-04.003 that those whose voices are heard are present in La Cumbre, with mention of a nearby town Acal. In consultation with Professor Nora England (University of Texas at Austin), these locations were determined to be in the municipality of San Ildefonso Ixtahuacán, in Guatemala. One reel is a copy of the other, such that each item in this collection contains digitizations of two recordings on different reels of the same content.
