Scope and Contents:
These papers reflect the professional lives of Alice Cunningham Fletcher (1838-1923), an ethnologist with the Peabody Museum of Harvard University and collaborator with the Bureau of American Ethnology, and Francis La Flesche (1856-1923), an anthropologist with the Bureau of American Ethnology. Due to the close professional and personal relationship of Fletcher and La Flesche, their papers have been arranged jointly. The papers cover the period from 1874 to 1939. Included in the collection is correspondence, personal diaries, lectures, field notes and other ethnographic papers, drafts, musical transcriptions, publications by various authors, maps and photographs.

The papers have been divided into three general categories: the papers of Alice Cunningham Fletcher, the papers of Francis La Flesche, and the ethnographic research of Fletcher and La Flesche. The first two categories represent personal and professional materials of Fletcher and La Flesche. The third section holds the majority of the ethnographic material in the collection.

Of primary concern are Fletcher and La Flesche's ethnological investigations conducted among the Plains Indians, particularly the Omaha and Osage. Fletcher's Pawnee field research and her allotment work for the Bureau of Indian Affairs among the Omaha, Nez Perce, and Winnebago are represented in the collection. A substantial portion of the ethnographic material reflects Fletcher and La Flesche's studies of Native American music. Much of the correspondence in the papers of Fletcher and La Flesche is rich with information about the situation of Omaha peoples in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

Also included in the collection are documents related to Fletcher's work with the Archaeological Institute of America and the School for American Archaeology. Additionally, substantial amounts of Fletcher's early anthropological and historical research are found among her correspondence, lectures, anthropological notes, and early field diaries. La Flesche's literary efforts are also generously represented.
Arrangement:
The collection is divided into the following 3 series: 1) Alice Cunningham Fletcher papers, 1873-1925; 2) Francis La Flesche papers, 1881-1930; 3) Papers relating to the anthropological research of Alice Fletcher and Francis La Flesche, 1877-1939.

Local Numbers:
NAA MS 169270
Local Note:
Most of the maps are not identified as to the precise area they represent except by Eskimo place names. Other notes on the maps include a short text in Eskimo and some notes in German and English; most of these notes are illegible, because Boas used a shorthand system of his own in writing many of them, and his handwriting is very difficult to read even when not abbreviated.

Date:
undated
Scope and Contents:
Texts: "The Mink and the Ghost," 1 p. and "The Man and the Whale," 3 pp., both with interlinear translations.
Boas classified Snanaimuq as a Coast Salish dialect and found a very slight difference between Snanaimuq and the Nanaimo, Kwantlen, and Tait dialects reported by Roehrig (BAE MS No. 3072, parts 2 and 3). Cf. Boas' Classification of Salishan MSS Vocabularies in BAE Archives and List of Main Dialects of the Salishan stock, MS No. 652.

Introductory note on p. 1 of MS No. 738 as follows: "The Snanaimuq proper inhabit the valley of the Nanimo River and the adjacent islands. They are claled the by Cal'oltg [Comox], Nanai'muq. The dialect of the Snanaimuq isi almost identical with that of the Cowitchin, and, in the following vocabulary, a number of Cowitchin words have been inserted in parentheses. The dialect of the Snanaimuq and Cowitchin is spoken from Nonoos Bay to the west side of Sanitch Inlet; on the adjacent islands and in the Delta of Fraser River as far as Yale and Spuzzum. Among published vocabularies those of the Snanaimuq and Cowitchen (in Tolmie's and Dawson's vocabularies) and of the Teit (by Gibbs) belong to this dialect."
