Hide Profile

Canadian geologist Robert Bell directed the Geological Survey of Canada from 1901-1906.

From the guide to the Robert Bell correspondence, 1874-1908, 1874-1908, (American Philosophical Society)

Ethnologist, linguist, and bibliographer.

From his participation in J.W. Powell's 1875 Rocky Mountain survey team until 1880, Pilling remained almost continuosly in the West, tabulating vocabularies of the Indian tribes. In 1885, the Smithsonian issued his "Proof-sheets of a Bibliography of the Languages of the North American Indians," which Pilling considered a preliminary and incomplete work. From 1887 until his death in 1895 Pilling produced a series of bibliographies on the Eskimo, Siouan, Iroquoian, Muskhogean, Algonquian, Chinookan, Salishan, and Wakashan languages.
