If she'd ever received a degree it would be easy, but, although she wrote the Ponca dissertation, she never published it == a requirement at Columbia Univ. at that time.
Looking at the holocaust lists, I wonder if the spelling "Frieda" is used by German speakers, while "Frida" is a transliteration from Cyrillic or an adaptation of the name in other languages like Polish, Czech or Hungarian.  The Hungarian name seems to be written with the "i".


If Frida was a student of Franz Boas, wouldn't there be academic records somewhere that would tell where she was from?
