Biographical / Historical:
Claudia Van McKnight logged 4,800 hours as an Army and Coast Guard pilot from 1985-2008. She entered the Army from ROTC in 1984, was an Honor Graduate of Initial Entry Rotary Wing class 85-24, then flew UH-1 helicopters in Germany before returning to Fort Rucker as an IERW instructor pilot. McKnight applied for the US Coast Guard Direct Commission Aviator program and was sworn into the Coast Guard on October 1, 1990. While assigned to North Bend, Oregon, McKnight flew the HH-65 on search and rescue and medevac missions, and she also deployed to Alaska for fisheries enforcement. As the Engineering Officer, McKnight flew Arctic (AWS-96) and Antarctic (DF-98) missions in the HH-65 with the Polar Operations Division out of Mobile, AL. Other deployments (from Port Angeles, WA) included a drug interdiction mission aboard USCG Cutter Mellon off Central America. Additionally, McKnight flew more than 800 hours in the HU-25 Falcon jet while stationed at Cape Cod, MA. Commander McKnight retired in Aug 2008 after 24 years of service.

Alaska Archeological Expeditions

Collection Creator:

Extent:
4.75 Linear feet
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1912-1938
bulk 1926-1938
Scope and Contents:
This series includes diaries, correspondence, notes, maps, anthropometric and osteometric measurements, reprints, manuscripts, and printed material related to fieldwork done in Alaska by Hrdlička and others. Of special interest is the material collected by Riley Moore on his 1912 trip to St. Lawrence Island for the Panama-California Exposition. Hrdlička made ten trips to Alaska between 1926 and 1938. On the first trip, sponsored by the Bureau of American Ethnology, he was to conduct an anthropological and archeological survey of Alaska. Other commitments kept Hrdlička from returning until 1929 when he again was sponsored by the B.A.E.; Hrdlička's purpose on this trip, as it would be on future trips, was to learn as much as possible about the Indians and Eskimos (including anthropometric measurements), to trace old settlements and migration paths, and to collect important skeletal and archeological material. In the summer of 1930, Hrdlička made two trips along the Kuskokwim River and in 1931, his work extended to the Nushagak River, the Molchatna River, the Wood River, Bristol Bay, the Kvichak River, parts of the Iliamna Lake region, and Uyak Bay of Kodiak Island. It was at this later stop that Hrdlička discovered the Jones Point (also referred to as Our Point) site in Uyak Bay. Hrdlička was aided on this trip by B.R. Hart and Gordon Jones of the Alaska Packers Association; A.W. Shiels, F. Daly, A.D. Daly, and A.S. Foster of the Pacific American Fisheries; and Laura Jones, Gordon's wife. Hrdlička retured to the Jones Point site in 1932, 1934, 1935, and for most of 1936. Besides excavating there in 1932, Hrdlička performed trial excavations at Chief's Point and other sites, and an archeological survey of Kodiak Island. He was aided again by B.R. Hart and Gordon and Laura Jones. Hrdlička returned in 1934 with a volunteer student crew, receiving in addition the help of Hart and the Joneses. That year Hrdlička added a brief Survey of the Cooks Inlet region and the mainland opposite Kodiak Island at Jones Point. The 1935 work was done exclusively at Jones Point. Hrdlička was helped again by Gordon Jones and a crew of volunteer professors and students. Four volunteers, in addition to the Joneses, accompanied Hrdlička in 1936. Excavations were carried out at Jones Point until late June. The remainder of 1936 was spent excavating at Dutch Harbor and Unalaska Island; on Atka, Kiska, Attu, Little Kiska, and Large Kiska islands; and in a mummy cave of Kagamil Island in the Four Mountain Group. Hrdlička concentrated on the Aleutian Islands and the Commander Islands for his Alaska expeditions in 1937 and 1938. In 1937 with six volunteer students, Hrdlička explored Unalaska Island and the Four Mountain Group, Attu Island, the Commander Islands, Agatu Island, Tanaga Island, Ilak Island, Adak Island, Umnak Island, and Shiprock Island. For the 1938 trip, Hrdlička purposed to collect data on pre-Aleut people, to determine if the Commander Islands served as a second land bridge, and to re-examine the burial caves and search for other such caves. He took several student volunteers. Exploration was carried out on Shiprock Island, Sviechnikov Harbor on Amlia Island, Ilak Island, Amchitka Island, Umnak Island (Nikolski village), the Commander Islands (Sarania Bay and Korabelni Bay), the Four Mountain Group, Bogoslav Island, and Amoknak Island.

See Series 37: Photographs, "Alaska Field Views" for additional materials, including illustrations used in Hrdlička's publications on Alaska. See Series 3: Correspondence, "Alaskan Reports", "Botsford, James W.", "Cary, Francis", "Cowper, Harold W., Jr.", "Erskine, John", "Erstein, Richard", "Hart, B.R.", "Jones, Gordon and Laura", "Parkes, George A." (Governor of Alaska), and "WI-WIL" for Edwin W. Wicht for letters about the Alaska expeditions. See Series 3: Correspondence, "Barton, Joe", "Bell, Earl H.", "Connor, Sydney", "Corner, George", "Gebhardt, Paul", "Guggenheim, Paul", "Heizer, Robert F.", "Laughlin, William S.", "MacRae, Thurman", "May, Alan G.", "McKee, Charles Bradford", "Osborne, Matthew F. Maury", "Seashore, Stanley E.", "Seib, George A.", "Weber, Tom", "Wineman, Walter", "Zarbell, Ivar H.", and "Zickefoose, Harold E." for correspondence with Hrdlička's volunteer professors and students. A map of Norton Sound and Seward Peninsula sites is in the Henry Bascom Collins papers.

Type:
Archival materials
Date:

1860-1962

1997
Scope and Contents:
For those who are searching for anthropologically substantive materials, special note should be made of the Manuscript and Pamphlet File. A potpourri of documents, the file includes correspondence, notes, drawings, maps, photographs, printed and processed materials, paper specimens, reports, writings, catalogs, motion picture film (now in the Smithsonian's Human Studies Film Archives), bibliographies, and other types of documents. Of concern is a wide variety of subjects such as anthropological specimens, museology and museums, Smithsonian history, archaeological and ethnological methods, exhibits, expeditions, history of anthropology, and so forth.

The file seems to have been maintained in the Division of Ethnology — in one document it was referred to as Herbert W. Krieger's morgue — and the subject matter is largely ethnological. Nevertheless, some documents relate to archeology and physical anthropology. The file also contains administrative materials, such as records relating to the Department of Anthropology's use of Work Projects Administration workers during the 1930s. In addition, the file is the main location of materials not generally accepted as being strictly anthropological in the modern sense. It includes, for example, material on period costumes, fish and fisheries, whaling, religions, armor, biblical studies, modern appliances, the seal industry, European music and musical instruments, lace, aeronautics, and other similar subjects. In addition, the file includes sets of papers of Edwin H. Hawley ,Walter Hough, Otis T. Mason, Talcott Williams and Thomas Wilson. Some documents, both primary and secondary research materials, concern the following cultural groups and geographic areas: Arabs, Bannock, Baubi, Blackfoot, British Columbia, Caddo, Carib, Chinook, Cochiti, Comanche, Cossacks, Cuna, Delaware, Diegueño, District of Columbia, Dyak, Eskimo, Europe, Fox, Goajira, Haida, Hawaii, Hittites, Hupa, India, Innuit, Iran, Ireland, Jamomadi, Japan, Jivaro, Kabyles, Kiowa, Kirghese, Klamath, Korea, Luiseño, Madagascar, Madiera, Maidu, Makah, Maori, Mataco, Maya, Micmac, Micronesia, Mission, Modoc, Mohave, Mongolia, Moro, Morocco, Naltunnetunne, Nanticoke, Narragansett, Navaho, New Guinea, Nez Perce, Nubia, Omaha, Onandaga, Osage, Oto, Papua, Parsee, Pawnee, Peru, Philippines, Pomo, Pueblo, Puerto Rico, Pygmies, Quichua, Quinaielt, Samoa, Sauk, Seminole, Seri, Shoshoni, Spain, Tahiti, Tesuque, Thailand, Texas, Tolowa, Tonga, Tulalip, Utah, Virginia, Washo, Wichita, Wintun, Yavapai, and Zuni.
