Meskwaki (Fox) syllabic texts and linguistic notes collected by Truman Michelson in Tama, Iowa. The Meskwaki texts were handwritten by Jack Bullard and Edward Davenport. Bullard authored "Red Eagle" and "What Thunderers Did," both with English translations by Michelson. There is also an English translation by Michelson of MeùÞkwihowa, another story by Bullard; the original Meskwaki text is not present. Davenport's texts include stories of his departure from Tama and arrival with "Flodo Keahna" at Carlisle; a visit to Ringling Bros. circus (1918); and a trip to the town of Carlisle. English translations, handwritten by Michelson, are present for all three stories. Also present are a phonetic version by Davenport of his first story and a phonetic version of his third story transcribed from a dictation by Harry Lincoln. The collection also contains linguistic notes, including short texts by Lincoln, and place names.
