Gordon Day papers May be restricted
This collection contains photographs, photographic negatives, research journals, research papers, notes for addresses, article reprints, correspondences, reel to reel audio recordings of Algonquin and Iroquoian language demonstrations, and other information collected by Gordon Day. The collection also contains ethnographic research materials related to the St. Francis Abenaki village at Odanak in Quebec, Canada, and the history of the Abenaki, Algonquin, Algonquian, and Iroquois (Haudenosaunee) tribes, with an emphasis on spoken language.
Day was interested in the linguistics and genealogy of the Native population at Odanak. A significant portion of the collection is a photographic essay created by Day's summer research assistant, William Bryant, and Alfred F. Whiting at the Dartmouth College Museum. The photo essay shows various Native villages in New England (Mashpee, MA; Princeton, ME; Old Town, ME) and a "Photographic Census" of inhabitants of Odanak, Quebec.
