RE: vol-7-1089
 
It may be of interest to subscribers to LINGUIST that Saint Mary's
University of Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, awarded a Master's degree to a
student (Eleanor Johnson) in 1992, for which her thesis was written in the
Micmac language.
 
The reference is:  Eleanor V. Johnson, The Mi'kmaq.  M.A. Thesis.  Halifax,
Canada:  Saint Mary's
University, 1992.  ISBN 0315909595.  (Micmac language)
 
The thesis is available on microfilm from the National Library of Canada in
Ottawa.  To my knowledge it is the first graduate thesis written in Micmac,
and possible in any native American language, although subscribers may know
of others.

There is a story--perhaps apocryphal--that the Mexican-American poet
Alurista submitted his dissertation to UC-San Diego in Cal=F3 [accented
o]--i.e. the popular slang of the Southwest and urban Northern Mexico, but
was told that he had to rewrite it in either English or Spanish but not
both. Unfortunately, I don't know if there's a grain of truth in the story
