No one was more fascinated by the rich variety of native languages than
Thomas Jefferson.

He dispatched countless deputies to the wilderness to gather vocabularies
and document speech. One of the key tasks for Lewis and Clark on their
great expedition was to detail and map their encounters with native
tongues, which resounded across the continent by the hundreds.

Jefferson saw these languages as uniquely American, praised their rhythms
and their sounds - and predicted their inevitable extinction.
"Civilization" - backed by the muscular expansion of the United States -
could not be denied, he observed.

Jefferson was nothing if not a walking contradiction.

The somber final exhibition in the American Philosophical Society's trio of
exhibits on Jefferson, third president of the United States and president
of the scientific association (1797-1814), explores Jefferson and native
America.

"Gathering Voices: Thomas Jefferson and Native America" is on view in the
Philosophical Society's museum on Fifth Street, behind Independence Hall,
Thursday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m, until Dec. 30.
