Abstract: Frederica de Laguna is generally considered the person who "discovered" Eyak. This paper chronicles a parade of characters who recorded Eyak in (over 9) vocabularies (1778–1862) and even phonographically (1899); more who defined or mapped it, even (1863) in color. Freddy's fieldwork of the 1930s is then discussed, and finally that of linguists after her (1940–2006). This is a history full of ironies that should entertain the reader appreciative of humanistics, human foibles, and the history of science.
