Guide to the Collection

The Microfilm Collection of Manuscripts on Cultural Anthropology was a guide produced over the years as the titles were microfilmed.  The associated pages contain the last known index to the Microfilm Collection.  The guide contains citations for 411 items produced between 1931 through 1992.  Several indexes at the end of the guide were produced to help navigate through the Collection.  When the existence of an accompanying audio recording is known, the identifying information for that recording is noted at the end of the citation.  The guide has no separate list of the related audio recordings.

The guide is divided into two parts

Part 1

The 1st part contains the listing for all the items included in the Collection. Each entry in the Collection is given a sequential item number. Item numbers range from #1 to #411 and are used to identify the item in the index and when ordering reproductions. Entries are also subdivided into 80 series numbered with Roman numerals. Several scattered numbers throughout the guide are blank and contain no information. To the best of our knowledge, this means that these numbers were never assigned or that the University of Chicago Library does not hold a microfilm copy of this title.

The 2nd part of the guide is a set of eight indexes and a brief list of abbreviations.  The indexes include:  contributors, institutions, areas, places, tribes, languages, Linguistic Atlas of the United States and Canada, and Microanalysis of Speech and Body Motion.  Numbers that follow entries in the index refer to item numbers.
