The collection about the people of Ulithi consists of two documents and a culture summary. The two documents, both by Lessa and both in English, cover the time span from about 1900 to 1949. They present a comprehensive ethnographic study of Ulithi Atoll conducted by the author over a nine month period of fieldwork from 1947 through 1949, and a collection of previously unpublished myths and folktales from Ulithi. The people of Ulithi live on the Ulithi atoll in the west-central Caroline Islands of the western Pacific, and speak a dialect of Chuukese. Ulithi has undergone strong culture change since the atoll came under United States control in 1944
