Scope and Contents note:
Photographs made in Patagonia by John Bell Hatcher during his expeditions to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego. They document Tehuelche and Yahgan peoples, dwellings, and the natural environment.
Biographical/Historical note:
John Bell Hatcher (1861-1904) was a paleontologist known for his work at Yale and Princeton Universities and the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh. Hatcher was born in Cooperstown, Illinois, but shortly thereafter his family permanently settled in Iowa. After studying for a few months at Grinnell College, Iowa, he transferred to Yale University, where he met paleontologist Othniel Marsh. Following Hatcher's graduation in 1884, he worked as Marsh's assistant, and in 1893 left Yale to became curator of vertebrate paleontology at Princeton University. During his time with Princeton, Hatcher made three expeditions to Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego (1896-1899) under the university's sponsorship. During these expedtitions, he also worked under commission by the Bureau of American Ethnology to collect material culture and make photographs of the Tehuelche and Yahgan communities, most of which were then purchased by the National Museum. Hatcher was appointed curator of peolontology and osteology at the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh in 1900, though his narrative of the Patagonia expeditions was published by Princeton in 1903.

Date:

Scope and Contents:
The S.K. Lothrop collection primarily contains negatives, photographic prints, and lantern slides made by Lothrop while employed by the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation. Lothrop traveled on behalf of the Museum to New Mexico, Argentina, Chile, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Peru. The four New Mexico negatives in this collection date from 1915, before Lothrop worked for the Museum, and depict scenes around Zuni. During his 1924 trip to El Salvador, Lothrop photographed volcanos, archaeological sites, antiquities, the landscape, villages, and native peoples engaged in pottery and rope making, food preparation, house building, and ceremonial activities. The 1925 views particularly concentrate on Argentina (but also Chile and Peru). The Argentina materials include views made in the Tierra del Fuego (also part of Chile), including depictions of the daily lives and ceremonial activities of natives peoples of Tierra del Fuego--Selk'nam (Ona) and Yámana (Yagán/Yahgan); the Patagonia landscape; and excavations undertaken by the Museum's La Plata Expedition. The 1928 Guatemala views include depictions of Mayan ruins of Zaculeu and of Tz'utuhil Maya (Tzutuhil/Zutigil), Quiché Maya (Quiche), and Kaqchikel Maya (Cakchiquel) people engaged in weaving, rope making, canoeing, and ceremonial actitivies. The collection also contains photographs made by Lothrop before he worked for the Museum, including 1915 views of effigy mounds in Wisconsin and views at Hopi, Acoma, and Santa Clara; 1917 views of Panama, Honduras, Costa Rica, and El Salvador; and 1918 views of Guatemala, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, and Nicaragua.

Biographical/Historical note:
Samuel Kirkland Lothrop was an archaeologist and photographer who extensively traveled and worked throughout Central America and South America. George Gustav Heye originally hired Lothrop to research native Guatemalan and El Salvadoran textiles and pottery. He subsequently excavated on behalf of the Museum of the American Indian in such places as the Tierra del Fuego. Here he photographed indigenous communities who would not survive the twentieth century as a distinct culture group. In 1923, he also photographed the activities of the Hendricks-Hodge Hawikku Expedition excavations. In addition to the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation, the Peabody Museum and the Carnegie Institute sponsored his research and archaeological work.

Historically, the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation managed all photographic and related manuscript collections separately. This collection description represents current management practices of organizing and contextualizing related archival materials.
