Work continues on on making digital copies of the audio tapes in the Klallam Language Program's archives. Last week someone turned over a tape labelled only on one side, to make sure there was nothing recorded on the other side of the tape. Checking... checking... A man's voice comes on. "This is August 10, 1959, and Miriam Vincent is speaking in Klallam." She speaks a word, he says the English, she speaks the word several more times. Such a treasure, preserved in silence in a file cabinet for 50 years.
