A belated addition:

Rigsby, Bruce. 1976. The Americanist tradition. Discussion by Bruce 
Rigsby. pp.29-33 in /American Indian Languages and American 
Linguistics/. Papers of the Second Golden Anniversary Symposium of the 
LSA, held at the niversity of California, Berkeley, on November 8 and 8, 
1974. Edited by Wallace L. Chafe. Lisse: The Peter de Ridder Press.

I haven't read this for decades, but my recall is that Bruce includes a 
survey of Americanists who also studied Australian languages, and thus 
influenced the Australianist grammatical traditions.
