Scope and Contents note:
Photographs of Seri artifacts and craftspeople, probably made by Dennis McCarthy.

The prints are mounted on unbound album pages, which also include a note on McCarthy's interest in the Seri, a resume, and a bibliography.
Biographical/Historical note:
Dennis McCarthy was a public service officer in Arizona, where he worked as State Parks Director, Historic Preservation Officer, and Natural and Cultural Resources and Urban Lands Planner for the State Land Department. He started visiting Seri fishing camps on Tiburon Island in 1968 and later made contact with the Seri at Punta Chueca. In his personal reflections, he reports having "become captivated" with their artwork, particularly wood carvings and basketry.
