Collection Technical Notes
Tapes form a subset of the tapes recorded in the comunidad of Aguacatenango, Chiapas State, Mexico. Norman McQuown assigned Roman numerals to all the Aguacatenango recordings, starting with a 1962 recording. By that token this series begins with "II" and continues through "XIV". (Note: the (Arabic) numerals used for the digitized files follow the Roman numerals beginning with "II".) In 1976 Franklin McCabe Lee tight-wound these tapes in order to preserve them. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
