    • Historical information: Sheldon Klein (1935-2005) born in Chicago and raised in Los Angeles. He earned a B.A. in anthropology (1956) and a Ph.D. in linguistics (1963) at the University of California, Berkeley. Klein conducted field research on Kawaiisu in Kelso, California in the summer of 1958, data that led to the publication of a comparative study of Kawaiisu and Monachi (1959). Klein's research interests then shifted to the field computational linguistics, and his Ph.D. dissertation focused on the theory of machine translation. After leaving Berkeley, Klein spent two years as an Assistant Professor at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He subsequently joined the faculty at the University of Wisconsin, Madison in 1966, where he spent the remainder of his academic career. At the urging of scholars in the field of Uto-Aztecan linguistics, Klein returned to his research on Kawaiisu in the early 1980s, working with some of the remaining speakers of the language in Tehachapi, California in 1981-1983.
    • Scope and content: The Papers document Sheldon Klein's field research on Kawaiisu in 1958 and the early 1980s. Included in the collection are original field notebooks from his research in Kelso, California with Fred and Rosie Collins in the summer of 1958. Also included are notes based on his work in Bakersfield and Tehachapi, California in the early 1980s. This later material was provided by several Kawaiisu speakers, including Carmen Peebles, Lida Girado, Ann Peltier, Rose Barneche, Andy Greene, Della Greene, and Harry Williams. The collection also includes a set of file slips with Kawaiisu vocabulary and grammatical elements and preparatory materials for Klein's published articles on Kawaiisu. Many of Klein's research trips and interactions with Kawaiisu speakers were done together with his wife Carol Klein, who has also played a major role in assembling the material in this collection.

We acknowledge with respect the Ohlone people on whose traditional, ancestral, and unceded land we work and whose historical relationships with that land continue to this day.
