Ethnological documents of the Department and Museum of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley 1875-1958

The Ethnological Documents of the Department and Museum of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, is composed of 216 separate collections of varying size, spanning the period 1875 to 1958, with the exception of a Quiché Maya manuscript leaf, dating from the 17th Century. The collection is comprised of manuscripts, field notes, and other linguistic, ethnographic and ethnobotanical documents, including card files, newsclippings, genealogical tables, charts, maps, drawings, photographs, as well as some original microfilm. Some of the data was gathered by Berkeley anthropology graduate students for the Culture Element Distribution Survey, under the direction of Alfred L. Kroeber. Many of the manuscripts contain notations in Kroeber's hand. The documents were transferred from the Robert H. Lowie Museum of Anthropology (now the Phoebe Apperson Hearst Museum of Anthropology) to The Bancroft Library in 1970.
