Guide to Anthropological Fieldnotes
and Manuscripts in Archival Repositories

Last updated: May 31, 2009 | Credits

This continually revised guide provides the location of more than 850 collections of ethnographic fieldnotes and manuscripts in non-Smithsonian archives. It complements Guide to the Collections of the National Anthropological Archives, which describes more than 650 collections in the Smithsonian's anthropological archives. A directory of the records of anthropological expeditions, field schools, conferences and associations follows the list of personal papers.

Many anthropologists have donated their fieldnotes and professional papers to more than one archival repository; when the National Anthropological Archives is one of them, NAA appears in the entry.

Please submit notes on additional collections to Robert Leopold (leopold@si.edu).
