Hi Nathan,
This is great. And it reminds me that Paul Sidwell and I collaborated quite some years ago to pay for the scanning of all of Gordon Luce’s notes and papers. I paid for all the TB stuff to be scanned, and Paul paid for the rest. I have a hard drive with 161 GB of the scans (I only have the TB materials—see the attached list; Paul may have already made the rest available somewhere). I never did anything with the language data (e.g. Qiang) because there wasn’t enough metadata to know what variety he was talking about or even what his symbols meant. I just kind of forgot about it until now. I am very happy to make it available to anyone who wants it, but currently I have no way to make it available, but I’ll see if I can use my wife’s DropBox account to make it available on line (she has 1T of space!) if people think it might be useful.

All the best,
