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.

Scope and Contents:
The Dall collection in the National Anthropological Archives has been called his "Alaska Library" and consists largely of printed material, including issues of periodicals, a few books, government documents, and scholarly articles. Some of this material is of anthropological interest. There are also a few manuscripts of writings, translations, and notes, including autobiographical notes by George Kennan and a speech about Ivan E. P. Veniaminov. The collection of photographs, although many are incompletely identified, is of ethnographic, archeological, historical, and geological interest. Included are views of towns, churches, and geological phenomena, a few portraits, and scenic views. Included also are Auk, Tlngit and Eskimo subjects. Some of the photographs are by Winter and Pond and by A. L. Broadbent, of the U. S. S. Bear.

Please note that the contents of the collection and the language and terminology used reflect the context and culture of the time of its creation. As an historical document, its contents may be at odds with contemporary views and terminology and considered offensive today. The information within this collection does not reflect the views of the Smithsonian Institution or National Anthropological Archives, but is available in its original form to facilitate research.
Arrangement:
The collection is arranged into 4 series: (1) Manuscripts, n.d.; (2) printed material, 1840-1918; (3) photographs, some 1894-1895; (4) maps and charts, some 1884-1898.
Biographical Note:
Naturalist William Healey Dall (1845-1927) was among the earliest scientific explorers in Alaska and journeyed to that land many times between 1865 and 1899. An employee of the Western Union Telegraph Expedition, United States and Geodetic Survey, and, finally, the United States Geological Survey, Dall was also affiliated with the Smithsonian. His 1867-1868 field work in Alaska was sponsored by the Institution; and, in 1880, he was made an honorary curator in the United States National Museum. ; His interests were far reaching and included, among other subjects, linguistics, archaeology, and ethnology.
