|Leer materials being processed|
The Archive has just received an important new collection of Jeff Leer's notes on comparative Athabaskan-Eyak-Tlingit. These materials documents Leer's extensive work on reconstructing the history of the Athabaskan, Eyak, and Tlingit languages. Materials are scheduled to be scanned in April 2011. I'll post another announcement once the scanned materials are available.
