Date:
1961-1962
Scope and Contents:
The folders in this sub-series were maintained by T. Dale Stewart while he served as Head Curator, Department of Anthropology, U.S. National Museum. They include letters with a few telegrams, announcements, programs, grant applications, manuscripts, receipts, photographs, and miscellaneous other material.

Although the file was maintained when Stewart was head curator, a relatively small amount relates directly to functions peculiar to that office. In general, most concerns Stewart's activities as a physical anthropologist. During this period he was elected to membership in the National Academy of Science, was engaged in scientific work on skeletal material from Shanidar, was involved in programs for anthropology in Latin America, was physical anthropological editor for the Handbook of Middle American Indians and a professional lecturer in the School of Medicine at George Washington University. He participated in conferences on Anthropology and the Condition of Individual and Social Freedom (1961) and the International Conference on Oral Biology (1962). He was also on the council of the International Union of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences. In 1962, Stewart was appointed director of the National Museum of Natural History. In addition to these activities, the file concerns Stewart's research, publications, speaking engagements, donations to the museum, recruitment of departmental personnel, advice and assistance to or from colleagues and students, and training activities of the department.

Selected correspondents include the American Anthropological Association, Taha Baquir, William M. Bass, Charles Loring Brace, Carleton S. Coon, Karl P. Curtis, Clifford Evans, F. Clark Howell, W. W. Howells, A. V. Kidder, Juan Munizaga, M. Prokopec, Erik K. Reed, Charles Snow, Ralph Solecki, James V. Taylor, Gus Van Beek, and John Witthoft (interfiled with the latter are letters of H. Geiger Omwake). Material requiring special mention include an article prepared for the Czechoslovak Society of Arts and Science in America entitled "Aleš Hrdlička: Pioneer American Physical Anthropologist"; photographs of Stewart and other taken in Czechoslovakia (filed Prokopec); a photograph of James H. Skinner (filed Solecki); and Kidder's brief remembrances of Hrdlička.
