    • Historical information: Kenneth Hill (b. 1938) received a BS from Georgetown University in 1960, an MA from UCLA in 1962, and a PhD in linguistics from UCLA in 1967, with a dissertation supervised by William Bright titled "A Grammar of the Serrano Language." In 1964-1965 he was Acting Assistant Professor in the Department of Linguistics at Berkeley, and beginning in 1965 he was a lecturer in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Michigan, the latter a period from which some of the materials in this collection derive.
      The bulk of the materials are recordings and field notes of Serrano, a language of the Takic branch of the Uto-Aztecan family traditionally spoken in the San Bernardino Mountains and the adjacent regions of the Mojave Desert. They are the result of a collaboration between Hill, Mrs. Sarah Martin, and Mr. Louis Marcus, and date from June-September 1963 and December 1964. Other materials included are a brief Cahuilla word list (Takic) recorded by William Bright with Katherine Sauvel (HillK.002.001); one of Cusco Quechua recorded by Hill with Aquiles Palomino Ojeda, and one of Efik recorded by Hill and an unidentified speaker (HillK.002.010); and a brief text in Nahuatl by an unidentified speaker (HillK.002.011).
      Sarah Martin was born Sarah Elizabeth Morongo on April 14, 1890, the daughter of Captain John Morongo and his wife Rose. Mrs. Martin made recordings of Serrano with linguist Guy Tyler in March 1954, October 1969, and January 1972 (see LA214); she passed away September 21, 1975, aged 85. Louis D. Marcus was born in August 1894 in Highland, CA, and passed away July 4, 1971, aged 76. He also made recordings of Serrano with Guy Tyler in December 1970 (ibid.).
