Scope and Contents:
The Ralph Kepler Lewis papers contain manuscript drafts, photographs, and original drawings for Lewis's dissertation Hadchite: a study of emigration from a Lebanese Village. No final version is present.
Biographical Note:
Ralph Kepler "Kep" Lewis was an anthropologist whose dissertation fieldwork took place in 1949-1950 in Lebanon, where he studied the social and economic causes of sustained emigration on a peasant community. The mountain village of Hadchite was the locus of his fieldwork.

Lewis was born in Missouri in 1912, and served in the Army in North Africa and France during World War II. After the war, he conducted several years of fieldwork among the Turkana people in Africa. He received his undergraduate degree from Southwest Missouri State College, and his MA in anthropology from the University of Southern California. He then attended Columbia University for his PhD, completing his doctoral work in 1967 with his dissertation, Hadchite: A Study of Emigration in a Lebanese Village based on his earlier fieldwork. He joined the faculty of George Washington University in 1964, after having served in the State Department as a specialist on the Middle East. He retired in 1982 but continued to teach for several years. Lewis died in 1997.
