About the Authors

Castro Johnson, Charlie Rohan, and the author [Sylvia M. Broadbent]
Castro Johnson, Charlie Rohan, and
Sylvia M. Broadbent (from Dr. Broadbent’s
The
Southern Sierra Miwok Language
(1964)).
Dr. Sylvia M. Broadbent prepared this dictionary in 1959 while a R.A. at the Department of Linguistics, University of California, Berkeley. She received a B.A. and Ph.D. in Anthropology from University of California Berkeley in 1952 and 1960. Her Ph.D. dissertation was A Grammar of Southern Sierra Miwok. This was later revised and published as The Southern Sierra Miwok Language. Dr. Broadbent is Professor Emerita at University of California Riverside. Her areas of interest are archaeology and ethnohistory of the Andean area, especially the Chibcha of Columbia; and North American Indians, especially California and the Desert West. She has also undertaken studies in descriptive and historical linguistics, especially American Indian languages and in language and culture, including relationships between linguistic findings and other kinds of anthropological research, and symbolism. Her papers are at UC Riverside.

The dictionary was based on earlier work by L. S. Freeland (1948-1972). (Also known as Nancy de Angulo, Lucy Freeland de Angulo, and Mrs. Jaime de Angulo.) Lucy S. Freeland was born 1890 in New Jersey. She graduated from Vassar with a degree in history in 1912. As a graduate student, she became a U.S. anthropological linguist at University of California Berkeley. Her Ph.D. work was interrupted by her marriage to Dr. Jaime de Angulo and sickness in her family. She continued to be associated with the university and produced Sierra Miwok Grammar, a “A-1” work according to Dr. Kroeber, that wasn’t published in the UCPAAE only because of budget problems. She also collaborated with her husband in several linguistic projects. They were divorced in 1948 and her ex-husband died in 1950.

Sierra Miwok Grammar was finally published in 1951 as “Language of the Sierra Miwok,” Indiana University Publications in Anthropology and Linguistics, Memoir 6, supplement to International Journal of American Linguistics, 17(1) (Jan. 1951). It was based on research in 1921-32. Mrs. Freeland also produced a series of vocabulary cards.

Her papers are at UC Santa Cruz. Her biography is in the UC Berkeley Department of Linguistics Survey Report #3 (1982).

The Central Sierra Miwok lived in the foothills around Sonora, California, and north and northwest of Yosemite Valley. The Southern Sierra Miwok lived in Yosemite Valley, Mariposa, and the surrounding foothills. [Map.]
