Collection Descriptive Notes:
Foster interviewed a large number of native speakers (male and female) in the Distrito Federal and the State of Mexico in 1971.
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes are the 25 original field recordings on five-inch reels made by Foster in Mexico plus a 26th tape on a seven-inch reel (see: "Nahuatl field recordings from Morelos"). All the tapes were donated to the LLA in 1996. Note: The numbering of the tapes does not follow the order on the "Attachment to Lending Agreement..." of 1996. Also note: At present the 27th tape (made by Jay Sokolovsky) cannot be located. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
