Biographical Note:
Donald J. Ortner was a biological anthropologist in the Department of Anthropology at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (NMNH). By the time of his death, Ortner had served in many positions at the Museum, including Acting Director (1994-1996). His areas of expertise included human paleopathology, human health in medieval England, bioarcheology of the ancient Near East, and the history and evoluton of human infectious diseases. Ortner was a founding member of the Paleopathology Association.

Ortner was born in 1938 in Stoneham, Massachusetts and arrived at the NMNH in 1963, working primarily with J. Lawrence Angel who had recently started as Curator in the Division of Physical Anthropology. While working at the Museum, Ortner completed his Master's in Anthropology in 1967 and received his Ph.D. from the University of Kansas in 1970. His doctoral dissertation was on The Effects of Aging and Disease on the Micromorphology of Human Compact Bone.

Ortner worked with Walter G. J. Putschar, a pathologist based at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, on a series of short-courses (1971-1974) on paleopathology at the Smithsonian. During the summer of 1974, Putschar and Ortner traveled to Europe (London, Edinburgh, Zurich, Strasbourg, Vienna, Prague) studying and photographing examples of skeletal pathology in museums and other repositories. The result of this research was the book Identification of Pathological Conditions in Human Skeletal Remains published in 1981, with later editions in 1985 and 2003.

In 1977, Ortner joined the Expedition to the Dead Sea Plain directed by archaeologists Walter E. Rast and R. Thomas Schaub, focusing on the site of Bab edh-Dhra. Ortner studied the tombs and skeletons for data indicating cultural and biological changes, especially urbanization and connection to the development of other "Western civilizations." Ortner participated in two more field seasons in Bab edh-Dhra in 1979 and 1981. From his research at Bab-edh-Dhra, Ortner published many scholarly articles and recreated two tombs for the Hall of Western Civilization at NMNH.

In 1988, Ortner began his collaboration with the University of Bradford in Bradford, England, teaching short-courses on paleopathology. While a Visiting Professor at the University, he also participated in a project on human health and disease in Medieval England. The project focused on leprosy and syphilis in skeletons from St. James Hospital's leprosarium cemetery in Chichester, Wharram Perry, and Magistrates' Court in Kingston-upon-Hull. He received an Honorary Doctorate of Science from the University in 1995.

Donald J. Ortner died on April 29th, 2012 in Maryland.

Scope and Contents:
This series, dated 1965 to 2013 and undated, reflects parts of Ortner's whole career. It includes his work at the University of Bradford, as Acting Director of the NMNH, at the site of Bab edh-Dhra in Jordan, as Vice-Chairman of the Bioarchaeology Panel of the Wellcome Trust, and for the Paleopathology Association. It also documents his daily activities in the Department of Anthropology. Of particular interest are materials for the publication project for the archaeological site of Tell Jemmeh with Gus Van Beek and David Ben-Shlomo, which Ortner worked on from 2008 up until his death.

Most of the materials are sent and received correspondence or memos grouped by an individual or organizational correspondent. An individual's file may also hold correspondence that refers to them, such as an academic or job reccommendation from Ortner. Other materials include programs from conferences, scholarly articles, photographs, slides, CD-Roms, and floppy discs.

Cross-referencing information from this series with other series may be required to understand it in context.

This series is arranged alphabetically. The series maintains Ortner's original arrangement with some changes for clarity.

Correspondence

Collection Creator:
Ortner, Donald J.  Search this
Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1966-2012
Scope and Contents:
This series, dated 1966 to 2012, consists of correspondence, sent and received, relating to Ortner's publications; involvement in the Paleopathology Association; work as Vice-Chairman of the Bioarchaeology Panel of the Wellcome Trust; forensic work for outside agencies; his position as advisor and reference for students; his position as Acting Chair of NMNH; involvement in the Bab edh-Dhra site excavation; work as Visiting Professor at the University of Bradford; and family life and other activities.

Ortner's classification of daily correspondence, professional correspondence, and personal correspondence was retained. Therefore, there is significant overlap in subjects and types of correspondence between these subseries. Overall, daily correspondence tends to be from colleagues within the museum, publishers, or other people with whom Ortner often communicated. Professional correspondence tends to be more formal, such as letters from students, people organizing conferences, and people who had never met Ortner in person, but worked his field. Correspondents in Ortner's personal correspondence include Ortner's parents, Ortner's children, and the pastor at the church Ortner attended. Some letters in personal correspondence are more professional in nature.

The original order of these files was maintained.

This series is arranged in 3 subseries: 1.1 Daily correspondence, 1995-2012; 1.2 Professional correspondence, 1987-2012; 1.3 Personal correspondence, 1966-2012

Date:
1971-2007, undated
Scope and Contents:
This series, dated 1971-2007 and undated, consists of materials relating to Ortner's professional activities. These include notes, correspondence, drafts, newsclippings, photographs, and computer disks.

Subseries 6.1, Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986 and undated, includes Ortner's notes and research materials for these lectures or talks at conferences. Ortner's lecture addressing science and culture in modern society was for the Smithsonian Resident Associate Program in 1984. The research materials that accompany Ortner's notes for his lecture on science and religion follow the controversy and lawsuit over the National Museum of Natural History's exhibit on evolution, which opened in 1979. The materials from the Smithsonian's Seventh International Symposium, How Humans Adapt: A Biocultural Odyssey include files from Ortner's participation in the 1981 symposium. Drafts, book reviews, and public relations materials for the book that accompanied the symposium, which Ortner edited, are also included.

Subseries 6.2, Forensic work, 2002, 2007, includes correspondence, notes, photographs, CD-Roms, and floppy discs relating to forensic cases from outside agencies on which Ortner was asked to collaborate. In these cases Ortner used remains to determine cause of death, verify identity, or provide other information for the case.

Subseries 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005, includes NMNH Research Associate Rebecca Ferrell's NIH grant proposal for a project titled "The Biology of Striae of Retzius in Human Tooth Enamel" that Ortner supervised in 2005; case reports Ortner organized and edited for the Paleopathology Newsletter; workshops he organized for the annual meetings of the Paleopathology Association from 1997-2002; and Ortner's short-courses in paleopathology. The material from the short-courses in paleopathology includes planning and correspondence from when they were offered as a lecture series at the Smithsonian Institution with Walter G. J. Putschar during the years 1971-1974 and 1985. The file also includes short-courses at the University of Bradford during the years 1988, 1994, 1998, 2001, 2003, 2005.

Subseries 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s, includes slides, negatives, and prints depicting professional events, such as conferences and awards ceremonies; Ortner at work in his office or lab with colleagues and interns; and a few prints of unidentified specimens. Notable people included in these images are Thomas Dale Stewart and John Lawrence Angel. Also included are negatives of photographic portraits of children, probably Ortner's.

This series is arranged in 4 subseries: 6.1 Lectures, conferences, symposia, 1975-1986, undated; 6.2 Forensic work, 2002, 2007; 6.3 Other professional activities, 1971-2005; 6.4 Photographs, 1960s-2000s.
