Description

This series includes professional correspondence as well as various notes and attachments, between Knorozov and other scholars and institutions in the Soviet Union and abroad. The few personal letters are New Year/Christmas greetings. The series is not large, but recurring subjects of the letters are theoretical linguistics, Maya languages and writing, Peru writing/notation systems, archaeology of Kuril Islands, and publishing. Correspondence with David Kelley, Michael and Sophie Coe, Tatiana Proskouriakoff, Thomas Barthel, Norman and Dolores McQuown, and the Peabody Museum of Harvard University, will be of particular interest to Mayanists. Letters and reports related to the activities of the Research Council of the Soviet Academy of Sciences on Cybernetics, the Semiotics research group, the Group of the decipherment of ancient scripts, and to Ustinov’s work on the computer-assisted decipherment of Maya writing are also of great importance for future scholarship. Other Knorozov’s correspondents include Ignace J. Gelb, Rafael Girard, John P. Harrington, Eleazar Meletinskii, Peter Lanyon-Orgill, and Aleksandr Reformatskii.
