[[underlined]] PUBLICATIONS [[/underlined]]

In July 1948 we distributed Indian Notes and Monographs, vol. XI, no. 3, "A Collection of Specimens from the Teton Sioux," by Frances Densmore. Additionally, we issued a new card in our Post Card series and hope to produce four more through the current year. An exhaustive Index to the seven volumes of Indian Notes is ready for the printer and should be ready for distribution in the early Autumn of 1949.

The sale of publications amounted to $587.60 and of the post cards, to $131.15. The mailing folder mentioned in last year's report continues to be popular with visitors.

Transcription Notes:
I find it interesting that the word postcard is written as two words ("post card"). Just food for thought: perhaps it's true that more recent terms entering the English language are either first written as two words or a hyphenated word before prevalent (lazy?) usage turns it into one compound word (for instance, the linguistic evolution of e-mail to email).
