Extent:
0.63 Linear feet
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1917-1942
Scope and Contents:
This series includes correspondence, manuscripts, illustrations, reviews, printing blocks and engraving plates, and financial papers related to the American Journal of Physical Anthropology (AJPA). Hrdlička was the central and driving force behind the creation of the AJPA in 1918. The journal served to establish the identity of the discipline, allowed Hrdlička to define physical anthropology in broad modern terms, and gave him a platform to campaign for recognition of the profession. He served as the first editor of the AJPA from 1918 to 1942, a period during which twenty three volumes were published. He also contributed considerable personal funds to the journal. In 1927, having previously declined, the Wistar Instute agreed to take over management of the journal from Hrdlička. The AJPA was recognized as the official organ of the fledgling American Associaton of Physical Anthropologists in 1930.

There is a considerable amount of material regarding the AJPA in Series 3: Correspondence "American Journal of Physical Anthropology". Series 3: Correspondence, "American Anthropological Association" includes letters exchanged with Robert Lowie regarding an agreement for him to refer submissions on physical anthropology to the AJPA. There are book reviews for the journal in Series 22: Manuscripts of Writings, "Undated: Brief book reviews for the American Journal of Physical Anthropology".
