    • Historical information: George Grekoff (1923-1999) was a graduate student in linguistics at the University of California, Berkeley. Although he never completed a dissertation, he held a teaching position in linguistics and Russian at the University of Washington before pursuing a career outside the field of linguistics. However, he remained an avid scholar of Chimariko, and spent much of his spare time organizing the existing documentation of Chimariko.
    • Scope and content: The Papers document Grekoff's research on Chimariko and other indigenous languages of North America from the late 1950s until his death in 1999. There were no remaining speakers of Chimariko during Grekoff's lifetime, so the bulk of the collection consists of various notes and organizations of data collected by other linguists, especially John Peabody Harrington. This includes several boxes of vocabulary slips, preparatory notes for a grammar of Chimariko, and notes and unpublished articles on various other aspects of Chimariko language and culture. The collection also contains a small quantity of material on other indigenous languages of North America, including Grekoff's original field notes on Southeastern Pomo from 1957 and field notes on Nuu-chah-nulth, Skagit, and Kwak'wala from Grekoff's time at the University of Washington from 1962-1967, portions of which were collected as part of field methods courses taught by Grekoff. Grekoff's consultants were John and Effie Kelsey (SE Pomo), Odelia Hunter, Hyacinth David, and Winifred David (Nuu-chah-nulth), and Louise George (Kwak'wala).

    • Historical information: The fourteen wax cylinders of Tunica that comprise this collection were recorded by Mary R. Haas in Louisiana in the 1930s. Haas received her PhD from Yale in 1935, writing a grammar of the language, but temporarily halted work on Tunica until 1938, when she began work on "Tunica Texts." She worked on the language through 1940, when her dissertation was published. Haas mailed at least twelve of the fourteen cylinders from Ann Arbor, Michigan to herself in Richmond, Indiana in August 1943. They later came to be stored at the Survey of California and Other Indian Languages at the University of California, Berkeley in two boxes (twelve cylinders in one, two in another). The 1943 mailing date can be made out from the twelve-item box, but no date can be discerned for the two-item box.
      In 1979 the twelve cylinders from one of the boxes were transferred to tape, but by that time the other two cylinders had been separated, and it was not until 1985 that the latter were similarly transferred; this latter tape was later digitized by the Berkeley Language Center. In 2014 all 14 cylinders, by this time all housed in the Survey, were used as a pilot for the National Science Foundation-funded project "Linguistic and Ethnographic Sound Recordings from Early Twentieth-century California: Optical Scanning, Digitization, and Access," involving the collaboration of the Department of Linguistics, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, and University Library.
    • Scope and content: Fourteen wax cylinder recordings of songs and stories collected by Mary R. Haas in the early 1930s as part of her dissertation fieldwork on Tunica.
