Date:
1965-1970
Scope and Contents:
The material in this sub-series consists of copies of outgoing letters, memoranda, and minutes with a few in-coming letters.

This file was maintained by Woodbury's secretary. The majority is composed of documents accumulated immediately after he left the position as director of the Smithsonian Office of Anthropology. In addition to his normal curatorial duties and other professional interests, during this period Woodbury was the Smithsonian representative on the Committee for the Recovery of Archeological Remains, the Smithsonian representative on the Board of Directors of the Human Relations Area Files, advisor on applications made under the Antiquities Act, the chairman of a departmenal committee on the publication of research by Frank H. H. Roberts Jr., the chairman of the Scientific Advisory Committee for the River Basin Surveys, a member of the Smithsonian Editorial Policy Committee, and a member of the Smithsonian Steering Committee for Anthropology that was involved with educational activities and training. There are also small amounts of material concerning the American Anthropological Association, the Society for Historical Archeology, and Woodbury's relationship with anthropologists and amateurs outside the Institution. There is some reference correspondence amd material relating to accessions of specimens.

There is not a great amount of material sent to any one person. Correspondents include such people as David F. Aberle, John Adair, J. O. Brew, Stephen F. Borgheyi, Wesley Breedlove Jr., Warren W. Caldwell, E. Mott Davis, Frederick J. Dockstader, Robert F. Heizer, Robert H. Lister, Robert L. Stephenson, and Gwinn Vivian.

The memoranda include a report on the first annual meeting of the Society for Historical Archeology, reports of meetings of the directors of the Human Relation Area Files, and minutes of the River Basin Surveys Advisory Committee meetings on October 18 and November 2, 1967. Two drafts of letters (March 14, 1969, and July 10, 1969) are to Governor Robert E. Lewis of Zuni, and concern plans for a visitors center and museum at the pueblo. Letters to and from Wesley Breedlove (in 1968) largely concern the effort for salvage archeology in South Carolina.
