Abstract:

There is much correspondence, linguistic material, notes, photographs, etc., relating to Mason's work in the southwestern U.S., Mexico, and South America. The correspondence is large and covers all aspects of his life, from reports on field work to answering casual questions referred to him through the University of Pennsylvania's museum, where he was a curator from 1926 to 1955. Included in this is much material relating to the American Anthropological Association and for the "American Anthropologist" (1928-1964).

There are all types of data for such languages and tribes as the Pimo Bajo, Papago, Northern Tepehuan, Southern Tepehuan, and Tepecano. There are class notes (1908-1910) kept by Mason for ethnology, archaeology, and linguistics courses at the University of Pennsylvania under Edward Sapir and Frank Speck [B\M384n].
