These papers were created or gathered by Wright in his role as attorney for the Washo Tribe. Included is correspondence between Wright; the Washington D.C. attorneys representing the tribe; appraisers Arthur W. Reber, Noble T. Murray, Homer Hoyt, Myron Wall, P. J. Shenon, Ernest Oberbillig, and R. P. Full; expert witnesses Samuel A. Barrett, Shelburne Friend Cook, Donald Colgett Cutter, Edward W. Gifford, Robert F. Heizer, and Alfred Louis Kroeber; and members of the Washoe Tribe. Series III includes transcripts and reports of expert witnesses before the Commission in the areas of Indian culture and history, mineral resources, and timber and fishery values; printed editions of plaintiffs' and defendant's petitions, and printed Commission findings for the Washoe case and for the docket of the Indians of California (Clyde F. Thompson et al, plaintiffs). Maps for these cases are found in Series V. Series IV, which is arranged by docket number, contains petitions and Commission rulings for other U.S. tribes.
