Summary:
Timothy Asch was an anthropologist and ethnographic film maker who devoted his professional life to using film as a recording and teaching medium. His papers cover the period from 1966 until his premature death in 1994 and reflect his active career in the field. A large portion of the files relates to his work among the Yanomami people of Venezuela and to his concern with bias in film making.
Scope and Contents:
The papers of Timothy Asch document his career as an anthropologist, educator, photographer and filmmaker through correspondence, photographs, research files (articles and notes), and teaching materials (course information and lecture notes). The files relating to Asch's film projects include articles, field notes, and reviews. The major correspondents in this collection are Patsy Asch, Tom Beidelman, Napoleon Chagnon, James Fox, Robert Gardner, Douglas Lewis, Peter Loizos, David & Olga Sapir, and Minor White.

Biographical note:
Asch studied photography at the California School of Fine Arts in San Francisco. While serving in the United States Army in Japan from 1951-55 he spent his off-duty hours photographing rice production and household activities in remote Japanese villages. After his military service, he enrolled in Columbia University graduating in 1959 with an undergraduate degree in Anthropology. After graduation, he went to work at the Peabody Museum at Harvard as an assistant editor to John Marshall on the Kung Bushmen film project. In 1964, he received a Masters Degree in Anthropology from Boston University where he studied in the African Studies Progam and read Anthropology with T.O. Beidelman at Harvard. In 1968, Asch and Marshall founded Documentary Educational Resources, a film distribution company. Anthropologist Napoleon Chagnon approached Asch in 1968 to film among the Yanomammmi people of Venezuela. This collaboration led to a major project resulting in over thirty films.

Scope and Contents:
This sub-series documents aspects of Carpenter's long professional collaboration and relationship with media theorist Marshall McLuhan. It includes Carpenter's reflections and memories of McLuhan's life, written after the latter's death (some of which is also detailed in sub-series 2.3 Memoir); various drafts and notes on the topics of media theory and mass communications; and press clippings and articles related to McLuhan's life and work, as well select articles and reviews written by McLuhan and a sound recording of a 1973 lecture by McLuhan entitled "Ideas."

Of special mention in this sub-series is an annotated copy of Understanding Media: A Report to the United States Office of Education from the National Association of Educational Broadcasters (1960) – otherwise titled Report on Project in Understanding New Media. This report is a curriculum created for the NAEB on media literacy, a precursor to McLuhan's seminal work Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man (1964). Also included in the sub-series are annotated copies of draft chapters from 1964's Understanding Media, sent to Carpenter for review.

Correspondence between Carpenter and McLuhan can be found in Series 3: Correspondence.
