Summary:
These papers reflect the professional and personal life of Frederica de Laguna. The collection contains correspondence, field notes, writings, newspaper clippings, writings by others, subject files, sound recordings, photographs, and maps. A significant portion of the collection consists of de Laguna's correspondence with family, friends, colleagues, and students, as well as her informants from the field. Her correspondence covers a wide range of subjects such as family, health, preparations for field work, her publications and projects, the Northwest Coast, her opinions on the state of anthropology, and politics. The field notes in the collection mainly represent de Laguna and her assistants' work in the Northern Tlingit region of Alaska from 1949 to 1954. In addition, the collection contains materials related to her work in the St. Lawrence River Valley in Ontario in 1947 and Catherine McClellan's field journal for her research in Aishihik, Yukon Territory in 1968. Most of the audio reels in the collection are field recordings made by de Laguna, McClellan, and Marie-Françoise Guédon of vocabulary and songs and speeches at potlatches and other ceremonies from 1952 to 1969. Tlingit and several Athabaskan languages including Atna, Tutochone, Upper Tanana, and Tanacross are represented in the recordings. Also in the collection are copies of John R. Swanton's Tlingit recordings and Hiroko Hara Sue's recordings among the Hare Indians. Additional materials related to de Laguna's research on the Northwest Coast include her notes on clans and tribes in Series VI: Subject Files and her notes on Tlingit vocabulary and Yakutat names specimens in Series X: Card Files. Drafts and notes for Voyage to Greenland, Travels Among the Dena, and The Tlingit Indians can be found in the collection as well as her drawings for her dissertation and materials related to her work for the Handbook of North American Indians and other publications. There is little material related to Under Mount Saint Elias except for correspondence, photocopies and negatives of plates, and grant applications for the monograph. Of special interest among de Laguna's writings is a photocopy of her historical fiction novel, The Thousand March. Other materials of special interest are copies of her talks, including her AAA presidential address, and the dissertation of Regna Darnell, a former student of de Laguna's. In addition, materials on the history of anthropology are in the collection, most of which can found with her teaching materials. Although the bulk of the collection documents de Laguna's professional years, the collection also contains newspaper articles and letters regarding her exceptional performance as a student at Bryn Mawr College and her undergraduate and graduate report cards. Only a few photographs of de Laguna can be found in the collection along with photographs of her 1929 and 1979 trips to Greenland.

Biographical / Historical:
Frederica Annis Lopez de Leo de Laguna was a pioneering archaeologist and ethnographer of northwestern North America. Known as Freddy by her friends, she was one of the last students of Franz Boas. She served as first vice-president of the Society for American Archaeology (SAA) from 1949 to 1950 and as president of the American Anthropological Association (AAA) from 1966-1967. She also founded the anthropology department at Bryn Mawr College where she taught from 1938 to 1972. In 1975, she and Margaret Mead, a former classmate, were the first women to be elected to the National Academy of Sciences.

Born on October 3, 1906 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, de Laguna was the daughter of Theodore Lopez de Leo de Laguna and Grace Mead Andrus, both philosophy professors at Bryn Mawr College. Often sick as a child, de Laguna was home-schooled by her parents until she was 9. She excelled as a student at Bryn Mawr College, graduating summa cum laude with a degree in politics and economics in 1927. She was awarded the college's prestigious European fellowship, which upon the suggestion of her parents, she deferred for a year to study anthropology at Columbia University under Boas. Her parents had recently attended a lecture given by Boas and felt that anthropology would unite her interests in the social sciences and her love for the outdoors.

After a year studying at Columbia with Boas, Gladys Reichard, and Ruth Benedict, de Laguna was still uncertain whether anthropology was the field for her. Nevertheless, she followed Boas's advice to spend her year abroad studying the connection between Eskimo and Paleolithic art, which would later became the topic of her dissertation. In the summer of 1928, she gained fieldwork experience under George Grant MacCurdy visiting prehistoric sites in England, France, and Spain. In Paris, she attended lectures on prehistoric art by Abbe Breuil and received guidance from Paul Rivet and Marcelin Boule. Engaged to an Englishman she had met at Columbia University, de Laguna decided to also enroll at the London School of Economics in case she needed to earn her degree there. She took a seminar with Bronislaw Malinowski, an experience she found unpleasant and disappointing.

It was de Laguna's visit to the National Museum in Copenhagen to examine the archaeological collections from Central Eskimo that became the turning point in her life. During her visit, she met Therkel Mathiassen who invited her to be his assistant on what would be the first scientific archaeological excavation in Greenland. She sailed off with him in June 1929, intending to return early in August. Instead, she decided to stay until October to finish the excavation with Mathiassen, now convinced that her future lay in anthropology. When she returned from Greenland she broke off her engagement with her fiancé, deciding that she would not able to both fully pursue a career in anthropology and be the sort of wife she felt he deserved. Her experiences in Greenland became the subject of her 1977 memoir, Voyage to Greenland: A Personal Initiation into Anthropology.

The following year, Kaj Birket-Smith, whom de Laguna had also met in Copenhagen, agreed to let her accompany him as his research assistant on his summer expedition to Prince William Sound and Cook Inlet. When Birket-Smith fell ill and was unable to go, de Laguna was determined to continue on with the trip. She convinced the University of Pennsylvania Museum to fund her trip to Alaska to survey potential excavation sites and took as her assistant her 20 year old brother, Wallace, who became a geologist. A close family, de Laguna's brother and mother would later accompany her on other research trips.

In 1931, the University of Pennsylvania Museum hired de Laguna to catalogue Eskimo collections. They again financed her work in Cook Inlet that year as well as the following year. In 1933, she earned her PhD from Columbia and led an archaeological and ethnological expedition of the Prince William Sound with Birket-Smith. They coauthored "The Eyak Indians of the Copper River Delta, Alaska," published in 1938. In 1935, de Laguna led an archaeological and geological reconnaissance of middle and lower Yukon Valley, traveling down the Tanana River. Several decades later, the 1935 trip contributed to two of her books: Travels Among the Dena, published in 1994, and Tales From the Dena, published in 1997.

In 1935 and 1936, de Laguna worked briefly as an Associate Soil Conservationist, surveying economic and social conditions on the Pima Indian Reservation in Arizona. She later returned to Arizona during the summers to conduct research and in 1941, led a summer archaeological field school under the sponsorship of Bryn Mawr College and the Museum of Northern Arizona.

By this time, de Laguna had already published several academic articles and was also the author of three fiction books. Published in 1930, The Thousand March: Adventures of an American Boy with the Garibaldi was her historical fiction book for juveniles. She also wrote two detective novels: The Arrow Points to Murder (1937) and Fog on the Mountain (1938). The Arrow Points to Murder is set in a museum based on her experiences at the University of Pennsylvania Museum and the American Museum of National History. Fog on the Mountain is set in Cook Inlet and draws upon de Laguna's experiences in Alaska. Both detective novels helped to finance her research.

De Laguna began her long career at Bryn Mawr College in 1938 when she was hired as a lecturer in the sociology department to teach the first ever anthropology course at the college. By 1950, she was chairman of the joint department of Sociology and Anthropology, and in 1967, the chairman of the newly independent Anthropology Department. She was also a visiting professor at the University of Pennsylvania (1947-1949; 1972-1976) and at the University of California, Berkeley (1959-1960; 1972-1973.)

During World War II, de Laguna took a leave of absence from Bryn Mawr College to serve in the naval reserve from 1942 to 1945. As a member of WAVES (Women Accepted for Voluntary Emergency Service), she taught naval history and codes and ciphers to women midshipmen at Smith College. She took great pride in her naval service and in her later years joined the local chapter of WAVES National, an organization for former and current members of WAVES.

In 1950, de Laguna returned to Alaska to work in the Northern Tlingit region. Her ethnological and archaeological study of the Tlingit Indians brought her back several more times throughout the 1950s and led to the publication of Under Mount Saint Elias in 1972. Her comprehensive three-volume monograph is still considered the authoritative work on the Yakutat Tlingit. In 1954, de Laguna turned her focus to the Atna Indians of Copper River, returning to the area in 1958, 1960, and 1968.

De Laguna retired from Bryn Mawr College in 1972 under the college's mandatory retirement policy. Although she suffered from many ailments in her later years including macular degeneration, she remained professionally active. Five decades after her first visit to Greenland, de Laguna returned to Upernavik in 1979 to conduct ethnographic investigations. In 1985, she finished editing George Thornton Emmons' unpublished manuscript The Tlingit Indians. A project she had begun in 1955, the book was finally published in 1991. In 1986, she served as a volunteer consultant archaeologist and ethnologist for the U. S. Forest Service in Alaska. In 1994, she took part in "More than Words . . ." Laura Bliss Spann's documentary on the last Eyak speaker, Maggie Smith Jones. By 2001, de Laguna was legally blind. Nevertheless, she continued working on several projects and established the Frederica de Laguna Northern Books Press to reprint out-of-print literature and publish new scholarly works on Arctic cultures.

Over her lifetime, de Laguna received several honors including her election into the National Academy Sciences in 1976, the Distinguished Service Award from AAA in 1986, and the Lucy Wharton Drexel Medal from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. De Laguna's work, however, was respected by not only her colleagues but also by the people she studied. In 1996, the people of Yakutat honored de Laguna with a potlatch. Her return to Yakutat was filmed by Laura Bliss Spann in her documentary Reunion at Mt St. Elias: The Return of Frederica de Laguna to Yakutat.

At the age of 98, Frederica de Laguna passed away on October 6, 2004.

Biographical/Historical note:
Alan Harwood was born on March 20, 1935 in Tarrytown, New York. He earned his undergraduate degree, magna cum laude, in Social Relations from Harvard University in 1957 and attended the London School of Economics on a one year fellowship the following year. When he returned to the United States, he began his graduate studies in anthropology at the University of Michigan, earning his M.A. in 1960. He went on to Columbia University for his doctorate, which he was awarded in 1967.

Under a pre-doctoral fellowship funded by the Social Science Research Council, Harwood conducted ethnographic research on the Safwa of the southwestern region of Tanganyika (now known as Tanzania). From September 1962 to 1964, Harwood carried out his research mainly in the village of Isyesye, near Mbeya, Southern Highlands Region. At the time, witchcraft accusations were common, and it thus became the subject of his dissertation, Witchcraft, Sorcery, and Social Categories among the Safwa, later published in 1970.

In 1967, Harwood was hired by the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center (formerly called the Neighborhood Medical Care Demonstration) in Bronx, New York. From 1967 to 1970, he directed a study on the health, illness, and medical beliefs and practices of residents in a low-income area of the south Bronx. One of the articles produced from this research was Harwood's "The Hot-Cold Theory of Disease: Implications for Treatment of Puerto Rican Patients" (1971). Harwood also looked at spiritism among the Puerto Rican community, which led to his publication, Rx: Spiritist as Needed: A Study of a Puerto Rican Community Mental Health Resource (1977).

From 1994 to 1995, Harwood was the co-principal investigator of a study conducted under the Tufts New England Medical Center on conceptions of health and well-being among 4 ethnic groups in Boston: African Americans, Mandarin-speaking Chinese Americans, Irish Americans, and Puerto Ricans. Harwood led the group studying Irish Americans.

In addition to his research, Harwood was the founding editor of Medical Anthropology Quarterly (new series, 1986-1991) and series editor of Cambridge Studies in Medical Anthropology (1999-2004) and of Studies in Medical Anthropology (2004-2006). He also edited Ethnicity and Medical Care (1981), a book geared towards health professionals.

In 1971, Harwood spent a year in New Zealand as a visiting senior lecturer at the University of Auckland. From 1972 to 2002, he was a professor of Anthropology at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. During his tenure, he also served as adjunct professor in the Department of Psychology (1993-2002) and as associate dean for Undergraduate Education, College of Arts and Sciences (1998-2001). In addition, he was a lecturer in the Department of Social Medicine at Harvard Medical School (1992-present).

In 1982, Harwood was honored with the Wellcome Medal of the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland for Research in Anthropology as Applied to Medical Problems. He is also a Fellow of the American Anthropological Association and of the Society for Applied Anthropology.

Scope and Contents:
Ethnographic Study of New York City Health Areas 24 and 26 --This applied project was carried out in cooperation with a comprehensive primary-care health center [Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center, originally called the Montefiore Neighborhood Medical Care Demonstration] located in the South Bronx, and the data therefore focus particularly on health, illness, and medical beliefs and practices. Funded by the Office of Economic Opportunity (OEO), the health center was mandated to raise health levels of residents of the two Health Areas. I began the research in August 1967 as a regular employee of the Research Department of the health center and then received a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York. As Principal Investigator of that grant, I hired and trained a research team of local residents and expanded the study to 11 randomly selected multi-unit buildings in the area. Researchers visited households in these buildings over the course of approximately a year, gathering data through participant observation, formal interviewing, and process recording. (For more on the setting and methodology of this study, see Harwood 1977: 6-33.) This Carnegie-funded part of the research ran from 1968 to 1970.

Data from this study are in three different forms: (1) Process and participant observation data gathered from households during the course of the study were recorded on 3" x 5" multi-copy slips, which are filed chronologically, by household, and by topic; (2) Data from formal interviews or from specific data-gathering projects (e.g., contents of medicine cabinets, dietary practices, immunization status of children, medical records from the health center of participants in the study) were recorded on specific questionnaire sheets or in spiral notebooks; (3) Information from the first two sources was transferred by researchers onto data analysis sheets for quantitative treatment.

In addition to these data, this set of materials contains research reports, correspondence, and business files from the project. It also includes questionnaires, code sheets, punch cards, and printouts from a census of the two Health Areas, which was carried out before I joined the Research Department of the center.

Besides providing basic data on health status and healthcare practices, additional information in the archive about housing, schooling, shopping, and working provides a vivid portrait of people living in a low-income area of New York City during the late-1960's period of the "Great Society." The archive also invites methodological inquiry by including information suitable for comparing observational data with data from medical records and census interviews on the same families. - Alan Harwood

Correspondence, memos, research proposals, and personnel files for the study can be found in Subseries: Business Files. The subseries also contains materials relating to other research and activities of the health center. These include health center reports; materials relating to an Albert Einstein College of Medicine community medicine course, which Harwood helped prepare and teach; and testimony by Harwood and other representatives of the health center to the Senate Select Committee on Nutrition and Human Needs on the housing condition of the South Bronx.

Process and participant observation data collected by Harwood and his research team are located under Subseries: Data Slips. Because the data slips contain identifying information of households in the study, the entire subseries is restricted. Other data and the analyses of data (some of which are restricted) are located in Subseries: Research Files along with papers and reports by Harwood, reports by colleagues, census data, and reference materials. Among the papers by Harwood are drafts of his article "The Hot-Cold Theory of Disease: Implications for Treatment of Puerto Rican Patients" and his paper that he presented at the 1970 American Anthropological Association meeting, "Participant Observation and Census Data in Urban Research."

One of the healthcare practices Harwood looked at in the study was spiritism among the Puerto Rican community. Although his book Rx: Spiritist as Needed: A Study of a Puerto Rican Community Mental Health Resource is not in the collection, Subseries: Research Files does contain a draft of his paper "Puerto Rican Spirtism as a Community Mental Health Resource" along with his field notes and writings by others on the subject.

It should be noted that during the study, the health center changed its name from the Neighborhood Medical Care Demonstration (NMCD) to the Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center.

Scope and Contents:
Boston Health and Well-being Project --Funded by the Kaiser Family Foundation through the Health Institute at the Tufts New England Medical Center in 1994-95, this study focused on people's ideas of health and well-being in four ethnic groups in the Boston area (Irish, Puerto Rican, African American, and Mandarin-speaking Chinese; a fifth group, Jamaicans, was dropped early on in the project for lack of appropriate interviewers). The data were gathered by means of two open-ended interviews with eight respondents per ethnic group, four each from lower and higher income families within the group. I was leader of the Irish team, with interviews carried out by Ann Rath, Ed.D., and Jamie Saris, Ph.D. The planning group for the study was interdisciplinary (epidemiologists, medical sociologists, a social psychologist, a psychologist, and myself). Except for the social psychologist (Elliot Mischler) and myself, all planners were quantitatively oriented, though the project was supposed to be qualitative in design. Largely for that reason, data analysis proceeded by creating a coding system using categories established before reading and analyzing the interviews, so that the bulk of analysis time for the study was consumed transcribing and coding interviews, rather than digesting what the interviewees' ideas and concerns were. So far as I know, only a few scattered articles, each one treating a single ethnic group, were published from this rich data cache. However, my strong conviction is that nothing valid can be said about any one ethnic group without comparing interviews across groups and across income categories. Thinking I would do such an analysis in about 1999, I requested copies of a complete set of uncoded interviews. However, I never published anything from this project. The bulk of the archive consists of these uncoded interviews. Additional material includes code books, coded interviews from Irish-American respondents, and correspondence regarding the project.

Clearly, the value of this archive is its trove of unanalyzed material on concepts of health and well-being from respondents in the two income and four ethnic groups, with the consequent possibility of comparing the relative importance of socioeconomic vs. cultural forces in creating different perspectives on these matters. - Alan Harwood

Filed in the beginning of Subseries: Interview Transcripts is the complete set of interview transcripts that Harwood had collected. While most of the interviews in this set are uncoded, some coded interview transcripts are also mixed in. The coded set of interviews with Irish American respondents begins with folder "IA001 #1." Several computer disks that were filed with the coded Irish American interviews have been separated and are restricted. The disks contain the Irish American interview transcripts, all of which exist in hard copy form in this series. The disks also contain files from Ethnograph, the software used to code the interviews. A description of the background and methodology of the study can be found toward the end of the series. To make sense of the folder titles for the interview transcripts, please refer to the key below:
