Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made on the 1936 expedition to Prince of Wales Island, Alaska, and at Southampton Island, Canada in 1954 or 1955. They include images of Henry Bascom Collins and others gathering bone and botanical specimens and travelling in a umiak. The collection was gathered for use by the Smithsonian National Associates' tour of Alaska in 1981, which was led by Collins and William F. Fitzhugh.
Biographical/Historical note:
Henry B. Collins began his career in anthropology as an assistant on Neil M. Judd's 1922-1924 expeditions to Pueblo Bonito in New Mexico. In 1924, he became an aid in the United States National Museum Division of Ethnology, and later was appointed to assistant curator, associate curator, and archeologist emeritus. He was also a senior ethnologist and later acting director for the Bureau of American Ethnology. Between 1927 and 1936, Collins did field work on the Bering Sea area and the Arctic coasts of Alaska, studying influences of Eskimo culture. His field work later expanded eastward to Baffin, Cornwallis, and Southampton islands during the period 1948-1955.
