Franz Boas : the early years, 1858-1906 by Douglas Cole( Book )

7 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Franz Boas: The Early Years, 1858-1906, is a personal and intellectual biography of one of the most influential anthropologists of the twentieth century, from his childhood in Germany to his resignation from the American Museum of Natural History in New York. Douglas Cole's thorough account of Boas's early life and career is unprecedented in drawing extensively from the vast collection of Boas's personal and professional papers at the American Philosophical Society in Philadelphia. The Boas family's lifelong habit of writing frequent, frank, and informative letters allows a rich and intimate look at Boas's childhood, family, schooling, and marriage, as well as his early expeditions among the Central Eskimo and Northwest Coast Indians and his struggle to establish a position for himself in American anthropology."--Jacket
At home with the Bella Coola Indians : T.F. McIlwraith's field letters, 1922-4 by T. F McIlwraith( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between 1922 and 1914, the young Canadian anthropologist T.F. McIlwraith spent eleven months in the isolated community of Bella Coola, British Columbia, living among the people of the Nuxalk First Nation. During his time there, McIlwraith gained intimate knowledge of the Nuxalk culture and of their struggle to survive in the face of massive depopulation, loss of traditional lands, and the efforts of the Canadian government to ban the potlatch. McIlwraith's resulting ethnography, The Bella Coola Indians (1918), is widely considered the finest published study of a Northwest Coast First Nation." "This volume is a complement to McIlwraith's classic work, incorporating his letters from the field as well as previously unpublished essays on the Nuxalk. Vivid and lively, the letters show the human side of the anthropologist, and provide a fascinating insight into the famous Northwest winter ceremonials and potlatch - events in which McIlwraith was one of the few white men privileged to participate as a dancer and partner." "Editorial annotations and photographs make this book a pleasurable read that will appeal to anthropologists and historians, as well as those with interests in Northwest cultures and the history of anthropology in Canada."--Jacket
