Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
Includes two archeological reports made in May-June, 1962, by Won-Yong Kim and Erika Kanedo, (not a part of the Ryukyu Culturak Survey itself); textile samples; and a tape recording of linguistic material from the Southern Ryukyus, as well as the mounted and captioned photographs and the color slide collection from the Survey. Each volume has a list of contents and the corresponding sections are marked off with dividers.
Scope and Contents
The volumes received in National Anthropological Archives were unnumbered but carried titles that correspond in most cases to those given in a list sent by George Kerr to Eugene Knez, November 1, 1961. The numbers from that list have been applied to the National Anthropological Archives volumes with the same titles.
