Goldstein is a physical anthropologist with specialization in paleopathology, the health of American Blacks, and aspects of migration. Formerly an employee with the United States National Museum, he has more recently worked in various capacities with United States government agencies concerned with health. Presently he lives in Israel.
The papers were donated to the National Anthropological Archives by Dr. Goldstein in two accessions, one in 1976 and the other in 1982.
The collection is made up of three types of material: photographs, notes, drafts of writings, tables, and so forth relating to physical anthropological work concerning Indians of Texas; correspondence; and materials of Muzaffer Suleyman Senyurek. The correspondence concerns publications, professional organizations, special projects relating to museums and racial attitudes, and personal relations with colleagues.
