Walter J. Ong Collection Web Site

I'm pleased to announce, on behalf of the Pius XII Memorial Library at Saint Louis University, that the Walter J. Ong Collection Web site is now live. The Walter J. Ong Collection website seeks to provide scholars, students, and researchers with information about the Walter J. Ong Manuscript Collection, to host a digital repository for collection materials, and to serve as a comprehensive resource on the life and works of Walter J. Ong, S.J. Our initial digital offerings include a number of unpublished lectures (typescripts saved as .pdf files), including those from his Lincoln Lecture Series in Africa in 1974, an audio recording of a lecture, and a number of photographs of Walter J. Ong and his family.

There will be much more to come over the next few months, and, really, many years to come.

I'm studying Traditional Indigenous Medicine of Mexico right now in a special short program in Mexico, and I am interested in knowing if there are any books that deal specificaly with Oral Tradition in Traditional Medicine and / or an Ongian analyisis of Native American Medicine (shamanism/herbalism and so on)studied in depth from any oral culture of the Americas. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks FJ

I don't know of anything. The best I can offer is this google search.
