Date:

Summary:
The Montgomery Papers consists of research collected by Dr. G. Edward Montgomery on his 1973 research trip to study the Machiguenga people of Lima, Peru. This material includes information regarding his pre-trip activities, data collected on his trip and research collected for use in various publications based on his research.
Scope and Contents:
During his 1973 trip to Peru, G. Edward Montgomery conducted a study of how human behavior is influenced by human understanding of the world in which they live. The data collected on this trip includes, environmental readings, vital statistics, calculations on energy intake and expenditure by gender, and technology used by the tribes. The collection includes correspondence, research materials, equipment manuals, proposals, original data and presentations and publications.
Arrangement:
The papers begin with materials used by Montgomery in the preparation of his trip to Peru, and follow the progress of the research from trip planning to final publication of his findings. In accordance with Montgomery's original order, folders are divided by research topic. This begins with information regarding the planning of the trip, followed by data collected during his time in Peru. Research presentations and publications are divided by topic. Larger topics are divided further into correspondence and reference papers by date.
Biographical / Historical:
Dr. G. Edward Montgomery is an Associate Professor of Ethnology at Washington University in St. Louis, MO. He received an A.B from Stanford University in 1964 and a PhD from Columbia University in 1972. His research focuses on the Washu Indians of Nevada, the Machiguenga Indians in Peru and the Northern Tamil Nadu area in India. He has focused on five fields of study: human ecology; the old medical anthropology; southern Asian regional interests (especially southeastern India); food and nutritional anthropology; and analyses of the complexities of U.S. American cultures.
