Hello Linguist List.

The Language Committee of Picuris Pueblo is putting together a library of
materials published or recorded on their language and related languages
and dialects. One of the items that I have been unable to help them track
down is: 

	George L. Trager 1935-1971.
	[Notes & Tape Recordings of Taos material - Linguistic,
	Ethnographic, collected in field sessions in 1935-1937, 1947,
	1948, 1954, 1955, 1959; then every summer from 1961-1971; Picuris
	material recorded in 1937 with Felicia Harben Trager, 1965-1971.]

My understanding from the Picuris folks is that George Trager had these
manuscripts and recordings in his possession. I also understand that
George Trager passed away earlier this decade.

Does anyone have information regarding the whereabouts of the materials or
a person or institution that might have such information? The Picuris
Language Committee would be most grateful for your assistance.

Please respond directly to <>.
