Photographs depicting Samuel Alfred Barrett, Stephen Cappannari, Pedro Carrasco, Alfred Louis Kroeber, Robert Harry Lowie, David G. Mandelbaum, Theodore D. McCown, Robert Francis Murphy, Edward Norbeck, and Leslie Alvin White while gathering for lunch at the Unviersity of California at Berkeley on April 7, 1957. Photographs were made at the university faculty club and near the temporary Department of Anthropology building. Norbeck was the photographer for almost all of the pictures; those that show Norbeck were made by either White or Cappannari.
These photographs were made at the request of Leslie White, a visiting professor at the university, who wanted to add images of Kroeber and Lowie to his photograph collection of distinguished anthropologists. Norbeck believes these photographs of Lowie are among the last of him alive.
