Scope and Contents:
This collection consists of photocopies of the ethnographic field notes of Arthur Leipold, who introduced solar cookers to the Otomi and Nahua of Ixtenco and Cuahtenco. Includes Otomi word lists.
Biographical / Historical:
Arthur Leipold conducted research among the Otomi and Nahua of Ixtenco and Cuahtenco in Tlaxcala, Mexico as part of a University of Wisconsin, Madison project headed by Milton Barnett. Graduate anthropology students distributed solar powered cookers developed by the university among four Native American tribes in Arizona and in Ixtenco and Cuahtenco in the late 1950s. The students studied the effectiveness of the cookers under daily use and how well the cookers were accepted.
