Background

Scope and Content:

This collection consists of personal collection of Professor Carleton Hodge, including many 19th and 20th century Bibles and works about the Bible.

Biographical / Historical:

Carleton T. Hodge, Professor Emeritus of Linguistics and Anthropology at Indiana University, was born in Springfield, Illinois on November 27, 1917 and died on September 8, 1998. After receiving his B.A. in 1939 from DePauw University, he began graduate work in linguistics, Near Eastern studies, and Ancient Egyptian at the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his Ph.D. dissertation, a descriptive grammar of Hausa, in 1943. From 1943 to 1963, Hodge worked for the Foreign Service Institute, supervising courses in foreign language training and publishing pedagogical language materials such as Some Aspects of Persian Style (1957) and Serbo-Croatian Stress and Pitch (1958).

In 1964, Hodge took a tenured position at Indiana University where he remained until his retirement in 1983. Hodge taught linguistics and was a founding member of both the Department of Linguistics and the African Studies Program, where he served on various committees throughout his career. He was the director of the Intensive Language Training Center, where he negotiated contracts with the Peace Corps and the Office of Education, until 1968. From 1969-1972, Hodge served as Associate Chairman of the Research Center for the Language Sciences and was Editor-in-Chief of the African Series, a role he continued after leaving the RCLS. Hodge then went on to teach linguistics full time and to hold a joint appointment in Linguistics and Anthropology.

After his retirement from Indiana University in 1983, Hodge continued to publish articles and book reviews. A full bibliography of his writings lists over 150 publications. Hodge also continued to attend meetings of the Linguistic Society of America, the American Oriental Society, and the Linguistic Society of India. Throughout his career, Hodge made both practical teaching and research contributions on the grammar and historical relationships among the languages of Africa, Europe, and Asia.

Carleton T. Hodge died in Bloomington, Indiana on September 8, 1998. He was survived by his wife, Pat (Sutcliffe) Hodge; four children: daughter Nina, and sons Philip, Nicholas, and Charles; and two grandchildren.
