Biographical/Historical note:
Carol Farrington Jopling (ca. 1917-2000) was a librarian and anthropologist. As a librarian, she mostly worked for government agencies, including the Smithsonian's Bureau of American Ethnology in 1961 and 1962. In 1973, she received her doctorate in Anthropology from the University of Massachusettes, writing her disseration on the "Women Weavers of Yalalag; Their Art and Its Process." After spending four years as a research associate at Harvard's Peabody Museum, she became chief librarian of the Smithsonian's Tropical Research Institute in Panama (1981-1984). There, she developed a focus on the anthropological study of architecture, publishing a book on the "Art and Aesthetics in Primitive Societies" in 1971.

Scope and Contents note:
Photograph depicting Antonio Zarco with his traveling companion, botanist H. Morgan Smith, in the Department of Anthropology Processing Lab, National Museum of Natural History. This photograph was made after Zarco's last donation to the museum of items from his tribal community (accession 349818). The photograph may have been made by Robert Elder of the Processing Lab or a Smithsonian photographer.
Biographical/Historical note:
Antonio Zarco is an elder of the Choco Tribe of Panama. He served on the staff of the United States Air Force Tropic Survival School in the Canal Zone and worked with American astronauts for part of their training. In 1970, Zarco was at Maxwell Air Force Base in Alabama assisting in a course involving intercultural contact. After attending one of Zarco's seminars, Wilton Sterling Dillon, who was director of the Smithsonian Office of Symposia and Seminars, helped arrange for him to visit Washington, DC. When Zarco found no Choco material in the National Museum of Natural History, he donated items he had with him and made an additional donation after his return to Panama.
