Date:
1911-1925
Scope and Contents:
This series includes negatives that Frank Speck made in Dealware in Sussex and Kent counties among the Nanticoke between 1911 and 1925. There are a significant amount of photographs of members of the Rappahanock tribe of Virginia in this series since Rappahanock community members often traveled to Delaware for the annual Nanticoke Thanksgiving festival. The majority of the photographs are portraits with a small amount of landscape views. Speck first began visiting the Nanticokes in Indian River, Sussex County, Delaware in 1911 and made regular visits throughout the next ten years.

Many of the portraits include family members from the Thompson, Johnson, Street and Harmon (Harman) families. There are also a large number of portraits of Nanticoke Chief Russell R. Clark. Of note are photographs from a Nanticoke Delegation in Dover, Delaware lobbying for a "Native American School System," or a "legal" Nanticoke Indian Association. This delegation also included Gladys Tantaquidgeon (Mohegan) who worked as an assistant to Frank Speck at the time.
Many of the Nanticoke tribal members were identified by Bill Davis from the Nanticoke Indian Museum in 2003, though there are a number of photographs that are still unidentified.
Arrangement:
Because the negatives are arranged by catalog number they are not in chronological order.

Biographical/Historical note:
Mark Raymond Harrington was born on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on July 6, 1882. He received his BS in 1907 and his MA in 1908 from Columbia University, where he studied under Franz Boas. He met George Heye while working at Covert's Indian store in New York in 1908 and Heye hired him shortly thereafter. Harrington spent from 1908-1911 visiting and collecting from tribes in the east and Midwest for Heye. From 1911-1915 Harrington was assistant curator at the University of Pennsylvania Museum. From 1916-1917 he conducted archeological surveys in Cuba and Arkansas, after which he spent a short time in the U.S. Army during the First World War. After his return in 1919 he started a series of archeological surveys in Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nevada, and Texas. Harrington worked for George G. Heye as an archaeologist, ethnologist, field collector, and curator, primarily along the eastern seaboard, in the south, Midwest, west, Cuba and Ecuador, from 1908 to 1928. He then joined the staff of the Southwest Museum as curator until his retirement in 1964. He died in San Fernando, California on June 30, 1971. Harrington is the author of many books and several hundred articles. A partial bibliography can be found in the Mark Raymond Harrington manuscript collection in the archives of the National Museum of the American Indian, Cultural Resource Center, Suitland, Maryland.

Deeds
Date:
1683
Summary:
This collection contains a land deed dated 1683 conveying the area near Anthony's Nose in New York to Stephanus van Cortlandt and one photographic negative shot in the 1970s depicting this land deed.
Scope and Contents:
This collection contains a land deed dated 1683 conveying the area now known as Bear Mountain in Palisades Interstate Park opposite Anthony's Nose along the Hudson River in Rockland County, New York. The grantors were the Lenape (Delaware) to Stephanus van Cortlandt (1643-1700), two-time New York City Mayor. The deed is on Vellum paper. This collection also contains 1 negative depicting the deed that was photographed by Museum of the American Indian staff photographers most likely in the 1970s.

According to landscape architect Julian H. Salomon's 1972 article entitled An Indian Deed Dated 1683, "Among the recent acquisitions on display at the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation, New York is an Indian deed dated 1683. It conveys most of what is now the Bear Mountain section of the Palisades Interstate Park and the northernmost corner of Rockland County to Stephanus van Cortlandt. The grantors were a group of Haverstraw Indians, part of the Munsi branch of the Lenni-Lenape or Delaware Tribe. Among the signers was Sakaghemerk, sachem of the Haverstraws. The granted tract lay west of the Hudson River and opposite Anthony's Nose. It was bounded on the north by the Assinipink Creek, on the west by the mountains, on the south by Sankapogh Creek and on the east by the river. It included Salisbury's Island (Iona Island), referred to in the deed as "Wanakawaghkon" and shown on an Erskine map as Sidbury's Island. Assinipink Creek is the outlet of Assinipink Lake, which likes at the foot of Bear Mountain and is known today as Highland Lake or Hessian Pond. Sankapogh Creek is the sluggish stream which bounds Iona Island on the south. It is commonly called Snake Hole Creek. This deed of 1683 is the first to land that is now the Palisades Interstate Park and one of the earliest to land that is now part of Rockland County. No mention of it is made in either Cole's or Green's histories of the county." [Salomon, Julian H. 1972. An Indian Deed Dated 1683. South of the Mountains. Vol. 16 (2) (April-June): 11.]
Arrangement:
This collection is arranged in 2 boxes: 1 box for the land deed and 1 box for the negative.
Biographical / Historical:
Stephanus van Cortlandt held many positions throughout his lifetime including serving as the first native-born Mayor of New York City and as a Chief Justice of the New York Supreme Court in 1700.

Born in New Amsterdam (today New York City) on May 7, 1643 to Captain Olof Stevense van Cortlandt and Anna Loockemans van Cortlandt of the Dutch Republic, Stephanus began his career as a successful mercantile in New Netherlands following his father's profession. After the British conquest in 1664, New Amsterdam was renamed New York City and Stehanus went on to become a council member of the English governor Sir Edmund Andros in 1674. Three years later, he started his career as Mayor of New York, a position he held from 1677 to 1678 and again from 1686 to 1688.

According to Landscape Architect Julian H. Saloman, van Cortlandt was authorized by Governor Andros to purchase land on the east side of Hudson River and eventually accumulated land holdings totaling 83,000 acres. In 1683, van Courtlandt purchased from the Lenape (Delaware) approximately 1,500 acres on the west side of the Hudson, which is detailed in the land deed in this collection.

Van Courtlandt died on November 25, 1700 and his widow Gertruj van Schuyler and children became the heirs of the property.
Provenance:
Originally owned by Stephanus Van Cortlandt (1643-1700); inherited through several generations of Van Cortlandt descendants, including Jean Rutherford Mason Browne (1917-2006); donated to the Museum of the American Indian by Jean Mason Browne in 1966.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
Virtually all the material consists of responses to a circular sent out in the spring of 1889 under the name of John Wesley Powell as part of an investigation by James Mooney. The circular requested data about 1) place names of Indian origin; 2) archeological remains; 3) individuals and groups of Indian descent; 4) local people able to supply additional information. Most responces are on forms; a few letters are included, some concerning later inquiries by Mooney. There are also a few notes; a list of pallbearers, apparently for the funeral of Albert S. Gatschet; and a few other types of documents.
