Abstract:

Series I (2.75 linear ft.) contains correspondence with anthropologists, government officials, students, publishers, Native Americans, and interested amateur anthropologists. Among the topics covered in this series are: ethnology, ethnohistory, religion, and social organization of Iroquois, Papago, and Yaqui Indians; and Iroquois political organization. There is correspondence concerning Tooker's work on the Northeast volume of the "Handbook of North American Indians," both as a contributor and as a member of the planning committee; her work as a member of the Visiting Committee of the Board of Overseers of Harvard College to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology from 1977 to 1981; and her work as Secretary of the Northeastern Anthropological Association from 1966 to 1968. Correspondents include: George H. Abrams, Harold Blau, Jack Campisi, Lynn Ceci, Wallace L. Chafe, James A. Clifton, Charles E. Congdon, Regna Darnell, Merle H. Deardorff, Henry F. Dobyns, Arthur Einhorn, William N. Fenton, Michael K. Foster, Jacob W. Gruber, Emil W. Haury, Hazel W. Hertzberg, Janet S. Pollak, William C. Sturtevant, Bruce G. Trigger, Marian E. White, and M. William Wykoff.

Series II (.75 linear ft.) contains issues of "Tonawanda Indian Community News" from 1972 to 1973; reviews of some of Tooker's books; programs and abstracts for meetings of the Northeastern Anthropological Association; book outlines and periodic reports about the Northeast volume of the "Handbook of North American Indians"; reports and meeting minutes during Tooker's membership on the Visiting Committee of the Board of Overseers of Harvard University to the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology (1977-1981); reports (for 1961 and 1963) on the construction of the Kinzua Dam on the Allegheny River; correspondence, programs, and mailing lists for the Conference on Iroquois Research, from 1945 to 1993; and reports, meeting minutes, and notes about Iroquoia, a proposed tourist center in New York State that would have provided an historically accurate re-creation of an Iroquois community.

Series III (1 linear ft.) contains mostly unpublished works, including many papers written for graduate courses at the University of Arizona and at Radcliffe College. Most of the works are on Iroquois topics, but there are also graduate papers about Southwestern Indians, including the Navaho, Yumans, and Papago Indians. There are a number of works about the nineteenth century anthropologist Lewis H. Morgan, and there is one work on the Handsome Lake religion ("History of the Handsome Lake Church"). There are two drafts of Tooker's published work, "The United States Constitution and the Iroquois League." The earliest item in this series is Tooker's undergraduate honors thesis, "An Interpretation of the Navaho Death Complex with Comparisons to the Apache and Pueblo," written in April 1949 at Radcliffe College. This series also contains Tooker's master's thesis, "Papagos in Tucson: An Introduction to Their History, Community Life, and Acculturation," written at the University of Arizona in 1952, and her doctoral thesis, "Ritual, Power, and the Supernatural: A Comparative Study of Indian Religions in Southwestern United States," written at Radcliffe College in March 1958.

Series IV (6 folders) contains works by Donald Bahr, Henry F. Dobyns, and Grace Rajnovich. There is a proposal and a report by Michael K. Foster for his 1970 research at the Six Nations Reserve, as well as an essay by Bruce G. Trigger for the Northeast volume of the "Handbook of North American Indians."

Series V (1.25 linear ft.) contains Tonawanda genealogies collected and revised by Tooker in July 1966 and then revised again by Veronica Evaneshko in January 1973. There are field notes about the Southwestern Yaqui Indians (in Pascua, Arizona), the Southwestern Papago Indians, and the Iroquois Tonawanda Reservation. There are also some notes taken at the American Anthropological Association meeting in 1982. This series contains one card file that is mainly about the Papago Indians; there are a few cards about the Yaqui Indians in Pascua, Arizona.

Series VI (4 folders) contains photographs from Tooker's 1952 master's thesis, "Papagos in Tucson: An Introduction to Their History, Community Life, and Acculturation"; photographs (sent to Tooker by Janet S. Pollak) of chipped stone turtles; and a photograph (originally in the Papago card file in Series V) of a group of Papago Indians. There are also photographs of dioramas that are in the Museum of Arts and Sciences in Rochester, New York and in the Buffalo and Erie County Historical Society. These photographs were collected for possible use in the proposed tourist attraction, Iroquoia.
