Abstract:

This rich collection covers a broad scope of Parson's life, and is divided into eight series: Professional Correspondence, Personal Correspondence, Works and Research, Financial Papers, Herbert Parsons Papers, Peter H. Hare Papers, Ephemera, and Photographs and Negatives.

The more personal, family material includes an interesting family genealogy or data book, "Record of Family Faculties" (a printed form-book devised by Francis Galton) which includes photographs of Parsons and otheres, with a detailed description of herself. There is correspondence with her children, and more extensively, 1898-1925, with her husband Herbert. Many of the latter were written while she was doing work in the field. They contain interesting information about her professional undertakings. Numerous anthropologists are represented in the correspondence, the most notable being the large number of letters from Alfred L. Kroeber, ca. 1915-1930s. He writes of personal matters, the state of anthropology at Berkeley and elsewhere, with many comments on colleagues and friends.

There is much material concerning her publications, with related letters and reviews of her work. Much that she published outside of anthropology related to her commitment to feminist causes, such as women's suffrage, and pacifism during World War I. There are four unpublished manuscripts: "In the Southwest" (a complete travel guide), "Imaginary Mistress," "Journal of a Feminist," "Journal of a Pacifist."

Included in the collection are letters of Professor Peter Hare who, with the family's consent and cooperation, collected material on Parsons for his biography "A Woman's Quest for Science" (1985). Included in this series are interesting reminiscences of Parsons by Ralph L. Beals and Arthur Huff Fauset.
