Catawba linguistic notes and texts collected by Truman Michelson in South Carolina. The purpose of Michelson's research on Cawtaba was to determine the resemblance between the Siouan and Muskhogean stocks. He compiled notes on the Catawba language through his work with John Brown, Margaret Brown, Robert Lee Harris, Ben Harris, Sarah Harris, Billy Harris, Ep Harris, and Taylor George. The notes include card slips of Catawba vocabulary with English translations. The texts included stories of the rabbit and terrapin; the ground squirrel and terrapin fight; and the deer and opposum in Catawba and English.
