Quinault materials

Consists of records relating to the Quinault language. Powell originally hoped to work with the Quinault in 1969 during his graduate studies, but there was already a linguist with the community. In the 1980s he was asked to work for them on the basis of the success of the Quileute books, but he was committed to other projects at the time. Finally in 1995 he went down to Quinault territory again but the promised funding did not materialise. The records in this series are those collected by Powell during the final period of communications with the Quinault.
