    • Languages: Chalcatongo de Hidalgo Mixtec, San Miguel el Grande Mixtec (mig), San Pablo Tijaltepec Mixtec
    • Dates: July & August 1982, June 1992
    • Extent: 8 5-inch reel-to-reel tapes, 43 cassettes
    • Historical information: Monica Macaulay received a BA (1979) and PhD (1987) from UC Berkeley, with a dissertation titled "Morphology and Cliticization in Chalcatongo Mixtec" (available here: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/5qb9x714). She was subsequently an Assistant and then Associate Professor in the Department of English at Purdue University from 1987 to 1996 before joining the linguistics faculty as an Associate Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where she has held the rank of Professor of Linguistics since 2001.
      In winter-spring 1981 and fall-winter 1981-1982, Leanne Hinton taught a graduate field methods course in the Department of Linguistics at UC Berkeley, which led to various different kinds of work on Mixtec in the following years, including Macaulay's independent fieldwork in Oaxaca in summers 1982 and 1992, and their joint fieldwork there in summer 1985, both in and around the town of Chalcatongo de Hidalgo. See "Associated materials."
    • Scope and content: Sound recordings of texts and elicitation. The reel-to-reel tapes from 1982 were mastered by the Berkeley Language Center in 1988. As part of this process, it was common for the tapes to be divided up into segments, which were occasionally reordered, and then stored on master reels. It is these segments that were digitized (with support by NEH Preservation/Access Grant), each resulting in their own digital file. This yielded the initial 23 file bundles found here. The cassettes from 1992 were digitized in 2018 in a different way, with one digital file per side of a cassette, which were then organized chronologically (see file bundles 024 through 052 here). In all of the file bundles in this collection, relations are given between a digital file and ranges of page numbers for corresponding field notes in collection "Macaulay." For bundles 001-023, the "Catalog history" field indicates correspondences between segment numbers on master reels and digital files; for bundles 024-052, the same field indicates correspondences between original cassettes and digital files.

    • Historical information: Monica Macaulay received a BA (1979) and PhD (1987) from UC Berkeley, with a dissertation titled "Morphology and Cliticization in Chalcatongo Mixtec" (available here: https://escholarship.org/uc/item/5qb9x714).

    • Scope and content: Field notes from elicitation sessions, including transcriptions of texts. In August 2020, Macaulay donated 13 notebooks related to her study of Mixtec during the period 1981-1992, in Berkeley and Oaxaca, Mexico. The first two notebooks are in the associated field methods collection (2020-16); the remainder are here (file bundles 010-020). The bulk of the lower-numbered file bundles (003-007, "Mixtec elicitations") are versions of the notes in existence by June 1987 that were reproduced on a typewriter, with handwritten corrections. File bundles 001-009 represent an earlier deposit made by Hinton on behalf of Macaulay.
      File bundle Macaulay.002 (typed field notes) was deaccessioned and moved to the field methods collection (2020-16). File bundles containing original notebooks corresponding to fieldwork in Oaxaca in summers 1982 and 1992 (010-020) have relations indicating which sound recordings in collection LA249 they correspond to; file bundles containing the typed notes have relations indicating which original notebook(s) they correspond to. All original notebooks and typed notes have been scanned and are available as digital files here. The PDF files containing the typed notes have been OCR'd and are searchable.
