Hide Profile

Frederick Webb Hodge was an ethnographer, archaeologist, editor and museum director. Hodge's first exposure to archaeology was as secretary of the Hemenway Southwestern Archaeological Expedition. When the project was over he returned to work at the Bureau of American Ethnology as Librarian. His work as editor began with the revitalization of the American Anthropologist and carried through his 2 vol. set of the Handbook of American Indians North of Mexico, to the famous 20 vol. set by Edward S. Curtis on the North American Indian. Hodge worked in various positions at the BAE until 1918 when he moved to the Museum of the American Indian (Heye Foundation) as assistant director. He conducted archaeological field work at the Pueblo of Zuni during his tenure at the Museum. He resigned in December 1931 to become the Director of the Southwest Museum, a postion he held until his retirement in 1955.
