    • Historical information: As a graduate student in anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley and the University of Chicago, Abraham M. Halpern (1914-1985) conducted field research on Quechan (Yuma) (1935 and 1938) and Pomoan languages (1936 and 1939-1940). He was an instructor and professor of linguistics at the University of Chicago from 1941-1946, where he was awarded a Ph.D. in anthropology in 1947. Following the Second World War, Halpern embarked on a second career as a political scientist specializing in the East Asian region. He returned to the study of American Indian languages in 1977, working as a research associate in linguistics at the University of California, San Diego from 1977 until his death in 1985, during which period he conducted additional field research with speakers of Pomoan languages .
    • Scope and content: Most of the material in this collection documents Halpern's ethnographic and linguistic field research on Pomoan languages; also included are ethnographic and linguistic materials related to his work on Patwin and Quechan (Yuma). The Pomoan material includes original notebooks from field trips conducted in 1936, 1939-1940, and the early 1980s, plus derived materials such as vocabulary file slips, manuscript articles, text transcriptions, and geneologies. Halpern's language consultants included the following people: Steve Parrish, Jenny Pike, and Esther Ward (Central Pomo); Joe Augustine (Eastern Pomo); Mary James and Julia Marrufo (Kashaya); Santiago McDaniel (Northeastern Pomo); Lowe Anderson, Edna Campbell, Nancy McCoy, and Mack Williams (Northern Pomo); John Kelsey, Effie Kelsey, Thomas Leon, George Patch, and Clifford Salvador (Southeastern Pomo); Elsie Allen and Annie Burke (Southern Pomo); Daisy Lowell Lorenzo (Hill Patwin).
