Title [Tsimshian texts.]
Description:Ca. 90 Tsimshian traditional texts in Ridley-type orthography with Interlinear English translation. Tate died in 1914 and the work was "recorded during the last twelve years" (Boas and Tate 1916:31). Pagination 195-2017 in Boas's hand. (1) edited and published in Boas and Tate 1908. (2) includes Tkemsum cycle, 37 segments. These texts partially overlap Boas and Tate 1912, but contain much unpublished traditional text; about a third of the original collection is missing, most of it unpublished. See also Beynon 1932 and 1933 for copies or revisions made in 1933-4 of at least pp. 1185-1703, about 20 texts from Tate originals, only partly overlapping with the above.  In 7 folders.
