Scope and Contents note:
Photographs of skulls in the United States Army Medical Museum collection, which appear to have been collected for physical anthropological purposes. Included are archeological remains and remains of Native American tribes and some other ethnic groups. Other than tribe or location, data for the specimens include Army Medical Museum specimen number, AMM negative number, and sex; for some, there is also collection data and information on physical or medical conditions. There are also notes identifying donors who included army officers, physicians, scientists, and explorers such as Ferdinand Vandiveer Hayden, Edward Palmer, Frederic Ward Putnam, George Rolleston, Paul Schumacher, and many others. Some of the photographs may have been made as part of the Army Medical Museumʹs program of distributing images of its specimens.

Represented are Africans, Chinook, Choptank, Dakota, Eskimo of Greenland, Taiwanese peoples, Hawaiians, Hidatsa, Nisqually, Philippine peoples, Ponca, Potowatomi, Pueblo, Tonkawa, and Ute. Archeological specimens are from the Aleutian Islands, California, the Dakotas, England (Roman period), Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, New Mexico, Peru, Vancouver Island, and Vermont. For some, there is also information about the status or physical condition of the individual or observations of medical conditions shown in the specimens. Some additional photographs appear to show specimens at the American Museum of Natural History.
Biographical/Historical note:
The United States Army Medical Museum (AMM, renamed the National Museum of Health and Medicine in 1989) was established by US Army Surgeon General William A. Hammond in 1862. Its initial focus was on collecting specimens of unusual pathology, mostly taken from victims of the American Civil War. By 1867, the museum had expanded to include medical, microsopical, anatomical, comparative anatomics, and other sections. The anatomical collection grew in part as a result of Circular No. 2 of 1867, which authorized military medical officers to collect cranial specimens from deceased Native Americans. Additionally, the AMM made an arrangement with the Smithsonian Institution, by which the Smithsonian transferred their collection of human remains in exchange for ethnological artifacts. AMM photographed and measured many of the specimens in its collection as part of the museum's anthropological research.

Asian Pacific Americans: Local Lives, Global Ties

Collection Creator:
Smithsonian Institution. Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Introduction:
What does it mean to be a person of Asian or Pacific Island descent living in the United States today? What are the primary strategies for adaptation and change versus sustainability and continuity? These were the questions underlying the 2010 Festival program.

The Asian Pacific American (APA) population of metropolitan Washington, D.C., provided an excellent cross-section of the national APA community. Moreover, its rapid growth made it a good example of the "global/local" and "preservation/transformation" themes that were celebrated at the 2010 Festival. The large number of federal workers and the location of foreign embassies in the nation's capital have brought APAs here from all fifty states and from all Asian countries. While the majority of APAs are foreign-born, those based in D.C. combine both Asian and American influences into many aspects of their lives.

The Festival program brought together people from diverse communities in the Washington, D.C., area to highlight the breadth of traditions practiced by APA cultures. It emphasized the ways in which APAs make connections not only to each other, but also to the broader communities in which they live, work, and play. Through theater, music, dance, and sports performances; demonstrations of language and calligraphy traditions; martial arts, healing arts, and ritual arts; crafts and foodways presentations; and children's activities, Festival visitors could learn about APA identity, history, and culture, discovering shared and integrated traditions.

The Asian Pacific American program was part of a collaborative research and public presentation project between the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage and the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Program. Partnering with the University of Maryland, local APA communities, and other organizations, the project researched and documented the cultural heritage of Asian Pacific Americans living in and around the capital region. In addition to the Festival program, the Smithsonian preserves collected stories, images, video, and audio clips of traditional APA culture in its archives and on its Web sites.

Phil Tajitsu Nash was Curator and Arlene Reiniger was Program Coordinator.

The program was produced in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution's Asian Pacific American program. AARP was a Major Donor to the program with additional support from the Office of Hawaiian Affairs, Juanita Tamayo Lott in memory of Robert H. Lott, OCA, Pragmatics Inc., and the Taipei Economic and Cultural Representative Office in the United States.
