Date:
circa 1960-1969
Scope and Contents note:
Photographs depicting Montagnard people utilizing items such as baskets, axes, hoes, and crossbows, as well as interiors and exteriors of dwellings. They include one image of the King of Fire, a Jarai shaman.

The photographs are a sample submitted to illustrate the use of artifacts which Hickey also donated to the Smithsonian. In a letter describing the photographs, Hickey noted that "with most of them [photographs], however, the ethnic group does not match the ethnic origin of the item [donated artifact] but the use of them is nonetheless the same." Included in the collection are pictures showing the use of a large crossbow, hoes, and baskets. Ethnic groups depicted are Jarai, Jeh, and Stieng.
Biographical/Historical note:

He built ties with many of the tribes of South Vietnam and wrote several books on the people living in Vietnam's Central Highlands.

Biographical/Historical note:
Joseph Michel Carrier (b. 1927) was a counterinsurgency specialist for the Rand Corporation in Vietnam, a researcher on herbicide use in Vietnam, and an anthropologist specializing in the analysis of homosexuality among Mexican and Vietnamese men. Educated at the University of Miami (BA, 1950) and Purdue University (MA, 1952), he gained employment with the Rand Corporation in 1956 as a research analyst. In 1962 and 1965-1967, Carrier was detailed to South Vietnam, where he assisted anthropologist Gerald Cannon Hickey's research on the Highland peoples and conducted fieldwork on Viet Cong morale and defection. Carrier returned to the United States in 1968 and entered the graduate program in anthropology at the University of California at Irvine. However, despite his doctoral research on homosexual men in Mexico, Carrier could find no positions in sex research after earning his PhD in 1972. With Hickey's support, Carrier found employment as a staff officer for the National Academy of Science's Herbicide Study Group, for whom he gathered data on the effects of US operations in Vietnam which used herbicides to defoliate forests to expose enemy compounds and poisoned Viet Cong food supplies. In 1974, Carrier helped author a working paper on the effects of these programs on the Vietnamese Highland populations. After his time in Vietnam, Carrier worked as an evaluator of California law enforcement programs (1973-1987) and was Chief Social Scientist for the Orange County Health Agency AIDS Community Education Project (retired 1992).
