Summary:
Raoul Weston La Barre was an anthropologist and ethnologist who is best known for his work with ethnobotany, his work on Native American religion, and for applying psychiatric and psychoanalytic theories to ethnography. This collection primarily contains materials relating to his 1935-1936 field work in Oklahoma and 1937-1938 field work in Bolivia, but also contains materials relating to his interest in the use of peyote and other hallucinogenic drugs which dates through the 1960s.
Scope and Contents:
This collection reflects part of the work and study of Raoul Weston La Barre, anthropologist and ethnologist. Included are field notes, research noteslips, correspondence, bound and unbound manuscripts, a scrapbook, materials on ethnobotany, photographs, special subject files, and miscellany consisting of publications, processed material and clippings.

The collection is divided into three broad subject areas. The Kiowa Studies and Peyote Studies relate to La Barre's field trips to Oklahoma in 1935 and 1936 and his study of peyotism and the ethnography of the Kiowa Indians. Considerable material relates to the Native American Church. The field notes are the result of interviews with informants among the Kiowas and have never been published. There is also some material on Kiowa linguistics. Related photographs (in Boxes 12 and 13) include portraits of Indians, many of whom were active in the Native American Church and peyotism.

Other Peyote Studies materials represent La Barre's interest in peyote and drug use during the 1960s. Much of this material relates to the Kiowa-Peyote Materials but with less emphasis on the Kiowa and more emphasis on hallucinogenic drugs. Some attention is paid to legal aspects of religious use of peyote.

The Aymara Studies relate to La Barre's field trip to Bolivia, 1937-1938. Most of the material pertains to the culture of the Aymara, with some lesser emphasis on the Uru and the Chipaya. Aymara linguistics, folklore and ethnobotany are included. Related photographs (in Box 14) cover a cross section of the cultures with an emphasis on the festivals and dancing of the Aymara.

The correspondence throughout the entire collection deals mainly with the editing and publication of La Barre's various manuscripts. Very little correspondence is of a professional nature. Among correspondents whose letters are included are Richard E. Schultes, Donald Collier, John Collier, Leslie Spier, William Bascom, Heinrich Kluver, Julian H. Steward, Morris Opler, Elsie Clues Parsons, Alfred Wilson, Alfred Metraux, Sol Tax, and G. P. Murdock.

Please note that the contents of the collection and the language and terminology used reflect the context and culture of the time of its creation. As an historical document, its contents may be at odds with contemporary views and terminology and considered offensive today. The information within this collection does not reflect the views of the Smithsonian Institution or National Anthropological Archives, but is available in its original form to facilitate research.
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged in 5 series: (1) Kiowa Studies, 1935; (2) Peyote Studies, 1937-1970; (3) Aymara Studies, 1937-1959; (4) Photographs, 1934-1938; (5) La Barre Term Papers, 1934-1935
Biographical Note:
Raoul Weston La Barre was born on December 13, 1911, in Uniontown, Pennsylvania. He received his A.B. from Princeton University in 1933 and his Ph.D. from Yale University in 1937. He is best known for his work with ethnobotany, his work on Native American religion, and for applying psychiatric and psychoanalytic theories to ethnography.

He conducted field work among the Kiowas in Oklahoma under the auspices of the Santa Fe Laboratory of Anthropology in 1935. In 1936, he conducted field research among Plains Indians in Oklahoma with R. E. Schultes for the Yale Institute of Human Relations. This work primarily concerned the Native American Church and the use of peyote and formed the basis for his 1937 dissertation thesis, "The Peyote Cult," as well as his 1938 book of the same name. His interest in the use of peyote and other hallucinogenic drugs continued throughout his career. He earned a Sterling Fellowship at Yale in 1937, which allowed him to conduct field work among the Aymaras and Urus in Bolivia from 1937 to 1938.

La Barre went to the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kansas, on a postdoctoral fellowship from the Social Science Research Council in 1938. While there, he was trained in psychoanalysis and conducted research. When he completed the fellowship in 1939, he gained a teaching position at Rutgers University, where he remained until 1943.

During World War II, he worked as a Community Analyst for the War Relocation Authority in Utah and was trained as a parachustist. He also served on the staff of Field Marshal Montgomery. In the later stages of the war, he conducted field research in China and India (1943-1945). Finally, he worked with the Atlantic Fleet until his discharge from the naval reserve in 1946.

After leaving the military, La Barre took a position at Duke University, where he taught anthropology from 1946 until his retirement in 1977. During his tenure at Duke, he also taught courses in psychiatry at the University of Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine (1956-1969). He became a James B. Duke Professor of Anthropology at Duke University (an endowed chair) in 1970.

His best-known works are The Peyote Cult (first published in 1938, reaching its 5th edition in 1989), which studied the use of peyote in the Native American Church, and The Ghost Dance: Origins of Religion (1970), which explored the birth of religions through a psychoanalytic lens.

La Barre died on March 13, 1996, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

List of Contents by David F. Aberle, May 2, 1952. Bureau of American Ethnology File 2537. Peyote. James Mooney. Miscellaneous material regarding Peyote. Also see File 1887. Manila envelope containing various bibliographical leads and so on, and notes regarding congressional hearings on peyote. I have taken the considerable liberty of sorting some of the remainder of the material into manila folders. These are grouped as follows: Chemistry and Botany. Therapeutic uses (by this is meant therapeutic use in Western medicine, not Indian), and Effects- visions, etc. (Accounts of experiences, etc.) Ethnology, bibliography, and miscellaneous. Accounts of use in various areas, bibliographical leads, mainly Spanish, comprise the bulk of this-only 2 items of Miscellaneous, in fact. Legislation and agitation: congressional hearings, newspaper article, etc. "Peyote Parallels": Marijuana and other drugs. Mooney apparently tried to cover Marijuana, Kava, some South American drugs, etc. In addition to the manila envelope and these manila folders, the following are in this file: 5 sheets of photographs of peyote plants. A manuscript on peyote by C. S. Simmons, Cache, Oklahoma: The Peyote Road. There are also letters to, from, and about the author. The manuscript is not complete. It includes: poetry, preface; Chapter I, Fight on the Indian Religion; II, the Missionary; III, the Rites of the Road; IV, The Drum; VI, Medicine Smoking; VII, healing the sick; XI, Unity; VIII, Physical and Psychical Phenomena; XIII, the Awakening; XIV, the Means to Power; XV, Psychometry-the awakening of the spiritual senses; XVI, the peyote in science and medicine; XVII, The explanation; XVIII, Indian Singing; Appendix- correspondence with congressmen, etc, re Peyote. Chapters 5, 9, 10, 12 are missing. Typescript of chapters 9, 10, 12 received 1968 from Simmons' granddaughter and correspondence, 6 pages. Author, a white man, an ardent peyotist, friend of Quanah Parker, his accounts of his own experiences have considerable interest, and there is also some valuable information in it. He was a complete mystic. Apparently Mooney planned to publish this. A notebook bound in olive cloth, 5 x 8, with 39 pages filled, and 2 bibliographic notes in the very back. The notebook seems to contain, among other things, detailed notes on actual meetings, but hard to read.

Scope and Contents:
Contents of the Mooney peyote files prepared by David F. Aberle. May 2, 1952. Bureau of American Ethnology file number 1930, Peyote. James Mooney. One bound book (100 pages) mottled cover 10 x 15", containing notes on Peyote, about 60 of which have notes. Comments by David F. Aberle. No date in book. Handwriting unclear, many abbreviations, pencil smudged in some places. At the beginning, an unnumbered page contains Mooney's index; I have expanded his abbreviations and guessed at some words. 1-Taos reference 1720 (Bandelier) (D. F. Aberle: Slotkin has since tracked this down--AA, 1951) 2-Cactus family little known (Coulter) 2 & 4-Spanish references--1611--1634--1784--1790--1856 (Brinton) 3 & 4-Ololiuhqui, Peyotl and Tobacco (Brinton) 5-Baalche or Pitarilla of Mayas (Brinton) 5-6-7-16-17-Bibliography and authorities. 8-Lophophora Genus (Coulter) 9-10-11- Official Notices, 1886, 1888, 1889 11-Observation of Blooming Plant 12-13-14- Songs 19-Mexico Travel 19-Geographic Names 20-Tabus 21 Plants concerned 22-28-Ceremony 29-Origin tradition 30-Historical tradition 31-Small Peyote Rattle Origin--at back (?) of Dictionary (Mooney's note)
All writing is on left-hand side of double page. Hence page-numbers should be read, "Facing p. ." Right-hand pages are numbered, left, not. The following materials seem to be of Special interest. Page 1, brief reference to peyote in Taos (cf. Slotkin, cited above). Page 2, translation of passage from Camino (?) del Credo by Nicolas de Leon, Mexico, 1611; translation of Sahagun, Historia de Nueva Espana, X Chapter, 29; Xi Chapter, 7. Other and less clear Spanish references are on same page. A bibliography begins on page 5, including 4 Spanish sources on that page and many more on page 6. Page 7 is mostly published material already cited by others. Page 9 quotes Agent J. Lee Hall, August 26, Ind. Rept, 1886, 130 (or 30 ?). 9 and 10 quote Spec. Agt. E. E. White, August 18 (first and only report), Rept 1888, 98-9. Page 11, Agt W. D. Myers, Rept 1889, 191. Page 16 continues bibliography, with published materials, including however the following: Leon, Dr. Nicolas, la Progreso 3, Guadalupe Hidalgo, Distrito Federal. Nordhausen, Mr. E. Las Prietas, Near (10 miles East of) Camargo, Tamaulipas, Mexico. Imitario -(?) Carrizo Indian mft (?) and language. Is at mouth Rio Grande. Lummis, C. F.-Los Angeles, California (Isletas) Reed Verner Jr. (?) Esq. Colorado Springs, Colorado (Utes). Dozier Sub. (?) T. Espanola near Santa Clara, New Mexico (Santa Claras). Poma
Villegas J and Bro, Larado, Texas. Stell, Dr. William N. Jesus Maria, Chihuahua, Mexico. Ashurst, Dr. William. Chihuahua, Mexico. Altamirano Professor Fernando, 3 Plazuela de la Candelareta (?), Mexico City. Chesnut. Duges, Professor A. Guanajuata, Guanajuato, Mexico. Chesnut. (I have extracted only some of these references to Jicarilla, etc, omitted). Page 18 seems to contain mainly authorities on cacti, etc. Cites Bancroft, Wild Tribes, 611, 1882, on page 19. (The material on the ceremony, in all probability, is what appeared in his article in Der Urquell, Bd. 1, 1897.) On page 35, he quotes Dr E. R. Fouts (?) Dulce, New Mexico, as saying that the Jicarilla do not now use P, because it is hard to get, but used to mix it with tiswin. Date, August 14, '97 (?) Beginning on page 37, in a different hand, is material in Spanish: Peyote in Tamaulipas. A different hand again (Mooney's perhaps) continues on page 42. The first hand starts again on 42. Not clear to me what the sources of this material is. Page 45 takes up Spanish sources again, with fairly full citations. Some are marked in red, "Extracted". Page 46 continues in the hand which copied most of the Spanish, with more Spanish. Continued through 56. Notes on 56 in Mooney's hand. Page 57 and part of 58 contains copy of a Spanish letter on Peyote, from Dr. Leon. ? Apparently Leon forwarded another letter. Otomi and perhaps other Mexican groups mentioned. Page 58 tells of Winnebago, quoting from a letter written March 25, '98. Says they have had it "some years." Page 59 quotes Sahagun in Spanish, Hernandes in Latin. Completed on page 60. Page 60, deals with Tarascans, Otomis, based on Leon. Page 62 continues with Spanish sources. Page 63 has one brief note; there is nothing else except an arrowhead drawn on 97. This catalog of contents is not complete. (David F. Aberle)
