Archival materials
Biographical / Historical:
Born in Buffalo, New York, but raised on Staten Island, Alanson Buck Skinner (1886-1925) became interested in Indians during his boyhood. While still in high school, Skinner found his way to the American Museum of Natural History, in New York City, and became known to F. W. Putnam and George H. Pepper. Skinner assisted in two Museum-sponsored collecting expeditions before he even graduated from high school: a 1902 excavation of a shell heap on Long Island sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History and led by Arthur C. Parker; and a 1904 ethnological expedition to Cattaraugus, in western New York, led by Mark R. Harrington for the Peabody Museum. In 1907, shortly after graduating from high school, Skinner became an assistant in the anthropology department in the American Museum of Natural History. In 1908 the American Museum of Natural History sent Skinner to James Bay, located between northern Ontario and Quebec, Canada, to conduct ethnographic field research and collect among the eastern Cree. In 1909 he was sent back to James Bay (returning via Wisconsin) to work among the Saulteaux. While still at the American Museum of Natural History, Skinner was enrolled at Columbia University. He studied under Franz Boas, Marshall Saville and Adolf Bandolier. He also studied anthropology at Harvard University on a fellowship for one year, from 1911-1912.

Skinner resigned his position at the American Museum of Natural History to join the staff of the Museum of the American Indian--Heye Foundation in 1916. While at the Museum of the American Indian--Heye Foundation, Skinner worked among the Menomini, Ojibwa, Oneida, Winnebago, Eastern Dakota, Bungi, Plains Cree, and Seminole. In 1920, Skinner took a position as assistant curator in anthropology at the Milwaukee Public Museum. He was promoted to curator in 1922 and succeeded Samuel A. Barrett as department head. (Barrett was made director of the museum.) In June of 1924, Skinner returned to the Museum of the American Indian--Heye Foundation and worked there until his death in August 1925. Skinner died in an automobile accident in North Dakota. He was on a field collecting expedition with his long time friend, Amos One Road. He was 38 years old
