Collection Descriptive Notes:
Norman McQuown and two other men,speaking Spanish, put the standard questionnaire to a number of native speakers (male and female) in the "comunidad" of Venustiano Carranza (Chiapas State, Mexico) in August 1958.
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes are a subset of all the original field recordings from San Bartolo, which Norman McQuown renumbered using Roman numerals, beginning with Nos. I through XVII. Note: The old numbering ends with No. 18 (=XVII) apparently because old Tape No. 10 was lost. Furthermore, there is no No. XVIII in this series probably because the number was inadvertently skipped over. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
