Biographical/Historical note:
David Ives Bushnell, Jr. (1875-1941) was educated in St. Louis, Missouri, and Europe before traveling to northern Minnesota in 1899 on his first anthropological expedition. From 1901-1904, he worked as an archaeological assistant at the Peabody Museum at Harvard University and continued his studies in anthropology. Bushnell lived in Europe from 1904-1907, documenting North American ethnographic material held in museums and private collections. Upon his return to the United States, Bushnell was hired as a contributor for the Smithsonian's Handbook of American Indians (1907) and was later appointed editor of the Bureau of American Ethnology (1912-1921).
