Date:

Summary:
Many facets of Richard Lynch Garner's life and work as an early animal behaviorist observing primates in Africa are represented in these papers. Other than a few notebooks of poems and manuscripts of books Garner had published before he began his study of apes and monkeys, there is little material that reflects his personal life or his work before about 1890. These papers, covering the period of 1891 to 1941, contain a diary, correspondence, articles written for magazines, manuscripts, poetry, notes, data collected on chimpanzees, financial records, legal records, maps, biographical material, artwork, and photographs.
Scope and Contents:
Many facets of Richard Lynch Garner's life and work as an early animal behaviorist observing primates in Africa are represented in these papers. Other than a few notebooks of poems and manuscripts of books Garner had published before he began his study of apes and monkeys, there is little material that reflects his personal life or his work before about 1890. These papers, covering the period of 1891 to 1941, contain a diary, correspondence, articles written for magazines, manuscripts, poetry, notes, data collected on chimpanzees, financial records, legal records, maps, biographical material, artwork, and photographs.

Many of Garner's observations and writings on the study of the languages of apes are included in this collection. Also included in these papers are comments, notes and essays written by Garner on the French administration of the Congo, on missionaries living in Africa and on the natives themselves. Many, but not all of Garner's writings have been published. Abstracts of many of his articles can be found in the folder "Synopses." Garner also created indices to his works, which may be helpful in navigating his writings. Psychoscope, a book of poems by Garner, was published in 1891 and can be found in this collection along with his other poems. His manuscripts and poems are arranged alphabetically.

Of special interest in this collection is the diary Garner kept while in the French Congo. The diary covers the period of January, 1905 to February, 1906. Also in the collection are data that he collected on chimpanzees, records of his financial transactions with the natives (including the purchase of animals), and rough sketch maps of American Point and Cameroun. The folder "Artwork" contains oil, pen, and pencil drawings of animals, likely intended to illustrate Garner's writings. Among the photographs in the collection are images of Garner, African people, and some of the animals Garner worked with, in particular Susie, his chimpanzee.

Harrington's completed biography on Garner as well as his research notes, reference materials, and drafts can also be found in this collection. In addition, the collection contains obituaries for Garner, presumably collected by his son, Henry. Two letters from Henry Garner to Harrington can be found under "Incoming Correspondence." Most of the outgoing correspondence are addressed to Garner's son.
Arrangement:
There is no discernible arrangement to the collection.
Biographical Note:
Garner, an authority on primitive language, took up the study and investigation of the language, life and habits of anthropoid apes after he realized the usefulness of the phonograph for recording primate communication. According to Harrington, Mr. Garner was the discoverer and initiator of the study of the language of apes, and his work was posthumously proven valid by Robert Mearns Yerkes in approximately 1925.

Fletcher, Alice C. (Alice Cunningham), 1838-1923  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1878-1925
Scope and Contents:
This subseries encompasses materials Fletcher saved as memorabilia as well as those documents and items that reflect her life and scientific work. Few of the items in this subseries were produced by Fletcher; a short autobiographical sketch is included.

Fletcher saved items from expositions and organizational meetings she attended, illustrating her various interests from women's organizations to social clubs and scientific societies. The majority of institutional records in this subseries encompasses the 1896 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, which Fletcher attended as Vice-President, as well as the St. Louis Exposition of 1904.

Reviews dominate the clippings about Fletcher's life and work, in particular those of Indian Story and Song. Unfortunately, many of the identifying papers for these articles were removed. They have been preserved in the folder labeled "Clippings Bureau."

In 1907, Alice Fletcher met Leo Tolstoy and wrote an account of the experience. Other Tolstoy materials include correspondence with and articles by Tolstoy admirers.

Alice Fletcher also collected and wrote poetry. Few of these items are dated.

The folder labeled "Collected clippings" includes only materials that do not relate directly to Fletcher's life or work, including obituaries of friends, notices of women's organizational meetings, and articles about various exhibits at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893.

Miscellaneous materials include invitation cards from Phoebe Apperson Hearst, hotel bills from Fletcher's 1907 trip to Europe, sparse financial records, photographs, and a notebook outlining her filing system.
Arrangement:
The material is arranged by subject, chronologically therein. Dates are non-inclusive.
Collection Restrictions:
