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:
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.
