  • Scope and Contents

    The Records of the Anthropology Department, filling five boxes, span the years 1964 to 1973. No records exist for the 1965-66 academic year. The bulk of the records fall between 1964 and 1969 and include, but are not limited to, annual reports, applications for graduate study or employment, budgets, correspondence, curriculum, department memos, faculty curriculum vitae, and materials relating to fellowships, the Program of African Studies, research proposals, and summer sessions.

    At times, the records' alphabetical designation may not be immediately apparent. Included under the letter “A,” for example, are general Anthropology Department records and memoranda, while records related to the Vogelback Computing Center may appear under the letter “V” or “C.” Records are comprehensive for the academic years 1964-65, 1966-67, 1967-68, and 1968-69. Records for 1969-70 include only folders labeled S-Z. Box 5 contains subject files, arranged alphabetically by subject, for the years 1968-73, and a final file of miscellaneous records for 1967-70 and 1973.

    For the period covered by these records, the Anthropology Department was headed by the following Chairs and Acting Chairs: Raoul Naroll, Acting Chair, 1964-65; Francis L. K. Hsu, Chair, 1965-69; Paul J. Bohannon, Acting Chair, 1969-70; Ronald Cohen, Chair, 1970-72; and Ethel Albert, Chair, 1972-73.

  • Arrangement Note

    The folders are arranged chronologically by academic year, and then alphabetically by subject or correspondent within each academic year. For the years 1964/65 and 1966/67, items are arranged chronologically by date within the alphabetical subject files. For all other years, the order is strictly alphabetical.
