India (Sacred Cattle)

Collection Creator:
Harris, Marvin, 1927-2001  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1962-1983
Scope and Contents:
In his article, "The Cultural Ecology of India's Sacred Cattle" (1966), Harris hypothesized that the Hindu taboo of eating cattle was a result of economic and environmental factors in India. This sub-series documents the debates surrounding the controversial theory and includes his statistical analysis, notes from his field research in India in 1967, correspondence, and papers and articles by others on the subject. This sub-series also contains Harris' collection of Indian wall calendar art that he refers to in Good to Eat (1998, 49); one is similar to the drawing that accompanied "India's Sacred Cow" in Human Nature Magazine.
Arrangement:
Folders are arranged alphabetically.
Collection Restrictions:
Access to student records (consisting of graded materials and student recommendation letters), grant proposals sent to Harris for review by grant agencies, and part of his faculty recruitment files are restricted until 2081. Series 10. Computer Files are also restricted due to preservation concerns.

Clay graduated from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts in 1892. She then attended the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and the New York School of Art, where she studied under Robert Henri and William Merritt Chase from approximately 1898 to 1909. Around this same time, Clay traveled abroad and studied art in Holland and Spain. She also attended the Art Students League of New York and studied in Paris where she shared a studio with other art students. Robert Henri, whom Clay considered a mentor, regularly visited the Paris studio to review the students' work.

In 1908, Clay had a solo exhibition at Rowland's Gallery in Boston. In 1909, she married Howard Clay in Dedham, Massachusetts. Henry was the alderman of Halifax, England, and the couple moved there sometime after their marriage. They had three children, Howard Fisher Clay, Monica Mary, and Harriet.

Clay continued to exhibit her artwork in England for over 30 years. She exhibited at the British Society of Women Artists, the New English Art Club, the Royal Academy of Arts, the Royal Cambrian Academy of Art, the Royal Society of British Artists, the Women's International Art Club, and the Yorkshire Union of Arts. In Massachusetts, her artwork was in exhibitions at the Boston Art Club, the Copley Society of Art, and other venues.

Elizabeth Campbell Fisher Clay eventually returned to the United States and passed away in Philadelphia in 1959.
