Excerpt from American Indian Verse: Characteristics of Style

Of. Holmes, Areas of American Culture; Anthropology in America, pp. 42 76.ican Anthropological Association, have made valuable collee tions and translations. The Ayer Collection in the Newberry Library, Chicago, is particularly valuable. Dr. Daniel G. Brinton, Dr. Washington Matthews, Miss Alice C. Fletcher, Mrs. Natalie Curtis Burlin, Miss Frances Densmore, Mr. Frederick Burton, and Mr. Edward Curtis have done notable work in the field Of Indian poetry and song. It is largely through the scholarship of such workers as these that this critical study has been made possible, although the investiga tion began independently some ten years ago when the writer spent a winter among the Chickasaw Indians.

It requires some courage to enter an untried field, especially when many have thought the venture a futile one. The writer is glad to express here her appreciation Of the friendly counsel given her by Dr. Dunlap, Head of the English Department, and by Dr. Hopkins, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Whitcomb, and Dr. Burnham of the departmental committee on graduate work.
