Curtin, Jeremiah, 1835-1906
Dates:
undated
Languages:
Described by Mary Hass, 1963 ("Shasta and Proto-Hokan Language," Language, Volume 39, Number 1, f tnt. page 43) as follows: "BAE MS No. 1452, a Powell schedule containing vocabulary items of Yuki and Achumawi [not Wintun], collected c. 1844"
Incorrectly included in Pitkin's Wintun Bibliography (IJAL, 28: 1, 1862, item 16) even though the information we sent to Berkeley ca. 1960 (on which he drew as a source) stated that 1452 was a Yuki vocabulary, said to include Wintun and Maidu terms, but with no terms in it specifically labled Wintun or Maidu.
