Biographical / Historical:
In 1988, anthropologist Charlene James-Duguid, program manager with the Smithsonian Associates, organized the Smithsonian Research Expedition Program. The program offered members the opportunity to work with professional scholars in a variety of disciplines. In return, participants contributed financial support and labor.
One of the program's offerings was guided on-site anthropological field work. The subjects and itineraries differed from year to year. They included loggers of Balinese ceremonial dancers; merchants at the Brimfield, Massachusetts, Antique and Collectible Flea Market; Cheyenne, Wyoming, Frontier Days celebration; Crow Indians at the Crow Fair and Family Reunion; Crow Indian Agency legal system; Orofino, Clearwater County, Idaho, lumberjacks; and Willow Tree Health Club in southwestern Washington, D.C., and . James-Duguid led each group. The program ended in 1994.
