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.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1904-1921
Scope and Contents:
Materials have been divided into three subjects to encompass the act to preserve American antiquities, the Archaeological Institute of America (AIA), and the Colorado Cliff Dwellings Association. Materials include correspondence, committee proposals and Congressional documents.

Fletcher was actively involved in the business and development of the Archaeological Institute of America throughout her career. Of particular interest is rich information in the form of correspondence and newspaper clippings on the character defamation controversy between Edgar Hewett and Franz Boas in 1911. Related materials are located among Fletcher's incoming correspondence in 1911 (subseries 1.1).

The formation of the School of American Archaeology (later the School of American Research), which Fletcher avidly supported, created friction between herself and F. W. Putnam. These issues are reflected in the folder relating to the formation of the school, the contents of which consist of drafts of letters from Fletcher to Putnam and Charles Bowditch.

The Colorado Cliff Dwellings material may relate to Fletcher's work for the preservation of antiquities.
