Scope and Contents note:
Photographs relating to a W. J. McGee expedition to southern Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. They document Yuma and Tohono O'odham Indians, dwellings, archery, and pottery.
Biographical/Historical note:
W. J. McGee (1853-1912) was a self-educated geologist, anthropologist, and hydrologist best known for his work with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and the Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE). He was hired as a geologist for the USGS by its director, Major John Wesley Powell. McGee stayed with the USGS until 1893, when he resigned to join the Bureau of American Ethnology, again working under Powell. During his time with the BAE, McGee made three expeditions to southern Arizona and northern Sonora in 1894, November 1895 - January 1896, and 1900. McGee's first expedition, which focused on the Tohono O'odham Indians of southern Arizona, was documented by photographer William Dinwiddie. Tohono O'odham interpreter Jose Lewis accompanied the group. The latter two expeditions were organized to study the Seri Indians, a small band of whom McGee had encountered in 1894. These expeditions were photographed by J. W. Mitchell and De Lancey Gill, respectively. McGee resigned from the BAE in 1903.
