Place:
Penonomé (Panama) -- Antiquities -- photographs
Date:
circa 1880-1925
Summary:
These images depict the indigenous people of Peru, Bolivia, Suriname and Chile; the largest percentage of the images are of Panama and Guyana (British Guiana).
Scope and Contents:
The Verrill collection consists primarily of photographic materials made by Verrill in Guyana and Panama. Dating from 1917 and 1925, the Guyana photographs depict mostly Carib and Patamona but also Warao, Arecuna, Akawaio (Acawai), Akurio (Acuria), Arawak, Macushi (Macusi), Waiwai, and Taruma men and women. These are mostly informal portraits, but the photographs also document dwellings and various activities, such as weaving, spinning, fishing, and canoeing. Included in the Guyana materials are also nineteenth-century (ca. 1880?) albumen prints of portraits of Wapichana (Wapishana), Waiwai, Atorai, and Taruma men and women; Verrill most likely did not make these photographs. The Panama materials date from 1924 and 1925 and are primarily portraits of Teribe (Terraba), Ngäbe (Boorabi), Coclé Guaymi (Cocle), Guaymi, Kuna (Cuna), Emberá (Choikoi), and Sabanero men and women, but the photographs also depict dwellings, ceremonials, and canoes. Among the Panama materials are photographs depicting antiquities from Penonomé. The collection also consists of 1924 photographs of the indigenous peoples of Peru, Bolivia, and Chile and 1925 photographs of the indigenous peoples of Suriname and Peru.

Biographical / Historical:
Ferdinand Anthony Stahl, 1874-1950, was a Seventh-day Adventist missionary to South America. Along with his wife Ana, Stahl converted to Seventh-day Adventism in 1902 and trained as a nurse at the Battle Creek Sanitarium in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 1909 the Stahls, along with their children, were sent as missionaries to La Paz, Bolivia by the General Conference in order to evangelize the indigenous communities in the area. In 1911, they moved to the Peru side of Lake Titicaca, establishing schools among the Aymara and Quechua communities. In 1920 the Stahls moved from Lake Titicaca to the headwaters of the Amazon in Iquitos, Peru where they established the Metraro Mission Station and launched mission boats downriver. They returned to the United States in 1939.

Scope and Contents note:
Photographs documenting Indigenous Peruvians, including Campa, Cashivo, Cunivo, and Piro communities; some images depict dwellings and weaponry. All or most of the photographs were made by Charles Kroehle and partner George Huebner, and probably collected by William E. Safford during his 1891-1892 expedition to Peru and Bolivia in connection with the World's Columbian Exposition. The photographs are mounted on disbound pages from an album.
Biographical/Historical note:
J. Charles Kroehle (1876-1902) and George Huebner were both German photographers who documented the Amazon region and its people in the late 19th century. Kroehle was primarily an expeditionary photographer and his photographs were published in books on the region, including El Peru Ilustrado (1892). George Huebner arrived in Brazil about 1885 and made pictures in Peru in Iquitos and on the Ucyali river (circa 1888). Huebner opened a studio in Manaus, Brazil in 1898 and in Belem in 1906.

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.
