Collection Descriptive Notes:
Unnamed native speaker (male) relates several Totonac stories, introduced by Norman McQuown, who was in Mexico City in c. 1941.
Collection Technical Notes:
The 23 "Audiodisc"-brand discs were cut live in Mexico City c. 1941. A technician in the Old Lab in Classics made a tape dub of these discs c. 1958; he refers to them at the beginning of each tape as the "Property of the Linguistic Institute of Chicago". The set of seven aluminum discs are copies of the Audiodiscs, but it is not known when (or where) they were made. Note: McQuown's use of the initials "MOC" in the shelf code might refer to Mexico City. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
