Editor's Note

Editor's Note Editor’s Note It is with great sadness that I report that Anthropological Linguistics has lost two valued members of our publishing team at Indiana University over the past year–first, Raymond J. DeMallie, an associate board member, emer- itus professor in the Department of Anthropology, and former co-director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute, who passed away in April 2021, and then, shortly afterwards, our editor, Douglas R. Parks, also emeri- tus professor in the Department of Anthropology and former co-director of the Institute, who passed away in May 2021. While not unexpected, their deaths have been a profound loss to their fields of research and to the publication of studies on Native American languages and cultures. Having taken on the editorship of Anthropological Linguistics in the early 1990s, Doug was committed to reinvigorating the mission of the journal origi- nally established by Florence (“Flo”) Voegelin in 1959, by publishing studies of endangered and poorly documented languages from around the world, and especially research on Native American languages and cultures. It was shortly thereafter that he hired me to work on his own Native American language projects after I had returned from a year and half of fieldwork overseas as a graduate student in Central Asia. Before long, Doug then hired me as manag- ing editor of the journal, a role in which I have continued to this day, while also finishing my Ph.D. and pursuing my own research interests at Indiana University. It is thus with mixed feelings of sadness and renewed commitment that I have agreed to take on the role of acting editor-in-chief at Anthropological Linguistics pending the appointment of a new editor. Hence, the mission con- tinues, while the memories that remain will be shared in obituaries for both Doug and Ray in forthcoming issues. – John A.

Abstract

Editor’s Note It is with great sadness that I report that Anthropological Linguistics has lost two valued members of our publishing team at Indiana University over the past year–first, Raymond J. DeMallie, an associate board member, emer- itus professor in the Department of Anthropology, and former co-director of the American Indian Studies Research Institute, who passed away in April 2021, and then, shortly afterwards, our editor, Douglas R. Parks, also emeri- tus professor in the Department of Anthropology and former co-director of the Institute, who passed away in May 2021. While not unexpected, their deaths have been a profound loss to their fields of research and to the publication of studies on Native American languages and cultures. Having taken on the editorship of Anthropological Linguistics in the early 1990s, Doug was committed to reinvigorating the mission of the journal origi- nally established by Florence (“Flo”) Voegelin in 1959, by publishing studies of endangered and poorly documented languages from around the world, and especially research on Native American languages and cultures. It was shortly thereafter that he hired me to work on his own Native American language projects after I had returned from a year and half of fieldwork overseas as a graduate student in Central Asia. Before long, Doug then hired me as manag- ing editor of the journal, a role in which I have continued to this day, while also finishing my Ph.D. and pursuing my own research interests at Indiana University. It is thus with mixed feelings of sadness and renewed commitment that I have agreed to take on the role of acting editor-in-chief at Anthropological Linguistics pending the appointment of a new editor. Hence, the mission con- tinues, while the memories that remain will be shared in obituaries for both Doug and Ray in forthcoming issues. – John A.
