Bio/History:
Udo Keppler was a political cartoonist for Puck Magazine, and an avid collector of Indian artifacts as well as being an Indian activist. He changed his name to Joseph Keppler, Jr. in honor of his father. He was elected honorary chief of Seneca and given the name Gyantwaka.

He actively promoted Iroquois lacrosse teams, and his connections with the railroad enabled him to procure discount railroad passes for New York Indians, especially those travelling to Canada on Confederacy business. On the national scene, Keppler worked with others to defeat or substantially modify proposed legislation to allot the New York State reservations.

titleMuseum of the American Indian/Heye Foundation records, 1890-1998.
repositoryNational Museum of the American Indian Archives Center
collection titleThe records document the governance and programmatic activities of the Museum of the American Indian/Heye Foundation (MAI) from its inception in 1904 until becoming part of the Smithsonian Institution in 1989.

Bio / His Notes:
The Museum of the American Indian/Heye Foundation was established by wealthy collector George Gustav Heye in 1908. Heye began collecting American Indian artifacts as early as 1897. Based first our of his apartment in New York, Heye bought collections and documentary photographs, sponsored expeditions, and traveled and collected items himself.

In addition, he sponsored numerous expeditions across the Western Hemisphere, including North American, Canada, South America and Central America. As he accumulated numerous objects it became apparent that he would need a separate space from his apartment to contain his burgeoning collection.

From 1908 to 1917 Heye housed his artifacts on temporary loan at the University of Pennsylvania’s University Museum, Pennsylvania, in lofts on East 33rd Street in New York City, and at other depositories. However, once the Museum of the American Indian, Heye Foundation was completed in 1916, the collections moved to their permanent museum location at Audubon Terrace, at 155th Street and Broadway in New York City.

The museum, containing ethnographic and archaeological collections from North, Central and South America, then opened to the public in 1922. Less than ten years later, Heye completed a storage facility and research branch in the Pelham Bay area of the Bronx.

Heye served as Chairman of the Board and Museum Director until his death in 1957. After growing concern about the financial and other management of the collections came to a head, the museum became part of the Smithsonian Institution in 1989 and in 1994 opened exhibit and public program space in the U.S. Customs House at Bowling Green near New York City’s Battery Park.

The Cultural Resources Center in Suitland, Maryland later opened in 1999 and the main Washington, DC museum opened in 2004.

titleOtis Tufton Mason papers, circa 1884-1904.
repositoryNational Anthropological Archives
collection titleIt is difficult to determine exactly the dates of most of the material in the Otis T. Mason collection. Only a small percentage of the papers is dated correspondence, the bulk consisting of notes, articles, catalogues, clippings, and illustrations related to the United States National Museum basketry and knife collections and to the topics of "Modes of Travel and Transportation" and "Mortuary "Customs." From their content, much of this material seems to date to the late 1870s and 1880s, when Mason was working on these collections.

As far as actual dated material goes, Mason's own articles (not counting his collection of articles by other authors) and dated notes and letters cover 1884, 1888-1889, 1892, 1894-1904. It is presumed, then, that the collection generally spans the years from 1884-1904.

Bio / His Notes:
Otis Tufton Mason had begun his professional career at his alma mater, Columbian University (now George Washington University), where he spent the middle third of his life (1861-1884) as a teacher and principal of the preparatory department. In 1872, Joseph Henry redirected Mason's interest from Eastern Mediterranean studies to American ethnology and introduced Mason to what was to become a 36-year career at the United States National Museum.

For the first twelve years, 1872-1884, Mason worked as one of S.F. Baird's unpaid part-time "resident collaborators" in ethnology. In 1884, Mason left Columbian University, where he had worked his way up to "Professor of Anthropology," to become the Smithsonian's first full-time curator of Ethnology.

In 1902, he became acting head curator and, in 1905, permanent head curator, of the Department of Anthropology, serving as curator of the department until his death in 1908.

Loc. of Assoc. Material:
Material related to the Otis T. Mason collection is also to be found in the National Anthropological Archives Records of the Bureau of American Ethnology, and the Department of Anthropology, including the Division of Ethnology Manuscript and Pamphlet file.

The following materials in the National Anthropological Archives series of Numbered Manuscripts are also pertinent: A.S.W./Anthrop., Hist. of, 4821 (pt.): Box 4. "Anthropology in the District of Columbia..." (39 pages, dated 1906) and two letters pertaining to it; Anthrop., Hist. Of, 4903: "Diary of Otis T. Mason.." from 1 July 1884 to 23 May 1891 (approximately 100 pages); Arch., U.S., 2431: notes, sketches, and letters used in Smithsonian Annual Reports for 1876-1879 and 1881-1883; Athapaskan, 173 and Tinne (Kutchin), 169: translation and notes from works of Petitot (total of 68 pages); Choctaw, 666: revision of Byington's grammar of Choctaw (ca. 1872); Census, 4289: report on Indian education for the 10th census; Africa, Morocco, 7083: Choctaw, 4056; Fewkes 4408 (5-a); Mohaven 7036; and Pamunkey, 2218: various letters to Mason containing ethnographic or linguistic information (dated from 1891 to 1893).

In the United States National Museum Manuscript and Pamphlet File, Boxes 4, 14, 20, 35-40, and 70, is material on the topics represented in the Mason papers as well as other material produced by Mason. Additional material originally found with the Otis Mason collection was, from its nature and arrangement, determined to belong to the Manuscript and Pamphlet file and has been moved to that collection.

This material consists of numerous articles, notes, and manuscripts, including 14 manuscripts by Thomas Wilson of the Division of Prehistoric Anthropology, correspondence between W.H. Holmes and Zelia Nuttalll, and correspondence between A. F. White and Thomas Wilson. All are listed under "Thomas Wilson" in the guide to the Manuscript and Pamphlet file (Box 84).

Additional papers, consisting of administrative files and correspondence, were originally found with the Otis Mason collection but clearly belongs to the anthropology Department's own administrative files and so were moved to that collection in the National Anthropological Archives.

Correspondents included in the eleven letterpress books moved to the Anthropology Department collection are W. H. Holmes, Ales Hrdlicka, Walter Hough, and E. H. Hawley. These papers relate almost entirely to administrative matters directed by Mason and very little to Mason's own ethnological and anthropological research.

The Smithsonian Institution Archives has a small series of copies of letters which Mason wrote to the Smithsonian in 1889 while on a trip in Europe to study museum practices (SIA 7086).

titleCharles F. Lummis papers, bulk 1904-1914
repositoryUniversity of California, Irvine
collection titleCharles F. Lummis explored and documented the culture and history of the Southwest in his writings and photography from 1884 until his death in 1928.

A resident of Los Angeles for most of his life, Lummis was city editor of the Los Angeles Daily Times, city librarian of the Los Angeles Public Library, an advocate of Native American rights, and founder of the Landmarks Club and the Southwest Museum.

This collection contains a portion of Charles F. Lummis' prolific correspondence to friends and colleagues, documents his tenure as Los Angeles Public Librarian, provides a sample of his photographic prints, and offers a rare glimpse of his early interests and activities through a personal scrapbook that he assembled during his college years.

Lummis' papers include manuscripts, typescripts, notes, articles about and by Lummis, news clippings, publications, photographic prints, legal transcripts, correspondence, invoices, and printed ephemera, all of which are related to his personal and professional interests.

Background
Charles Fletcher Lummis explored and documented the cultures and histories of Spanish California and the Southwest through his writings and photography from 1884 until his death in 1928. He resided in Los Angeles for most of his life and influenced Southern California as city editor of the Los Angeles Daily Times, city librarian of the Los Angeles Public Library, and an advocate of Native American rights.

He gained fame in 1884 during his "tramp across America," when he walked from Ohio to California, dispatching newspaper articles about his adventures and gaining respect for the Southwest and its people as he went. He wrote numerous books, reported on the injustices committed against Native Americans, battled to have Native American children released from government schools and returned to their families, advised President Theodore Roosevelt on "Indian affairs," and established the Sequoya League to defend Native American rights. Lummis also photographed and explored the Southwest, Mexico, Central America, and South America, collecting artifacts along the way.

He also collected Native American and Spanish folktales and recorded many traditional songs on wax cylinders. He founded the Southwest Museum in Los Angles to share his collections with the public and established the Landmarks Club to restore the old Spanish missions.

Lummis' campaigns and editorials in favor of preserving Native American and Spanish culture were unusual for the time and often generated great debate.

titleCharles F. Lummis collection, 1559-1973 (bulk 1879-1928).
repositoryUniversity of Arizona Libraries, Special Collections
collection titleLetters, magazine articles, typescript notes, scrapbooks, poems, songs, and photographs by or about Charles Lummis; also historical documents collected by him.

The typed and handwritten correspondence is with a variety of people: family members, admirers of his writing, literary colleagues like Hamlin Garland, and political friends that include President Theodore Roosevelt and Maj. Gen. Leonard Wood. Among his writings is the incomplete typescript of his memoirs, "As I remember," with different versions and re-writes by his daughter, Turbese.

One of the scrapbooks contains five different versions of his "Birch Bark Poems," with letters of appreciation relating to them, including one from Henry W. Longfellow.

Among biographical memorabilia is the address book from his trek across the continent, 1884. As the founder of the Southwest Museum, Los Angeles, Lummis saved material regarding the early history of that institution, including the floor plans.

Over 300 photographs are present, many of which are cyanotypes. They depict Lummis throughout his life; his family; his home "El Alisal" being built in 1904; various places he visited; and friends, such as the historian Sharlot Hall, the naturalist John Burroughs, and the artist William Keith.

Photographs of Pueblo Indians date from 1889 to 1896; Acoma and Isleta pueblos are the most represented. A smaller group of photographs from 1902 depicts Mohave Indians in Needles, Calif.

Original and typescript historic documents are mainly from Spain and California. The original Spanish ones are a 1559 manuscript concerning the reform of the royal hospital near Burgos, Spain; a 1584 manuscript relating the legal history of this hospital from the 1450s to the 1580s; and a 1613 "purity of blood" testimonial attesting to the non-Jewish background of Estaban Ruiz of Santa Marta, Spain.

Among the original California documents are a 1796 manuscript, in Spanish, relating to the Santa Cruz Mission; an 1849 list of ship passengers on board the "Orpheus," from New York to San Francisco; and an 1883 narration, in Spanish, on the century's events in California: including the arrival of the Americans, Santa Ana, and the first printing enterprise.

titleHenry G. Peabody Collection of Photographs and Negatives [graphic], 1859-1993, (bulk 1890s-1900s)
repositoryThe Huntington Library
collection titleThe Peabody Collection consists of 672 glass plate negatives in various sizes, 1054 film negatives in various sizes, 24 photograph albums, 887 loose photographs in a variety of formats, published works, and manuscript material, created and collected by Henry G. Peabody, 1859-1993 (bulk 1890s-1900s).

The materials collectively describe Peabody's long career as a commercial landscape photographer working on both the east and west coasts of the United States. The photographs and negatives depict Peabody and his family; landscape views in New England, Canada, the western United States, California, and Mexico; Native Americans; city and landscape views in Great Britain, France, and Switzerland; portraits; architectural renderings;

plants and animals; unidentified landscapes; and miscellaneous images. Additional photographers and photographic firms represented in the collection include Alexander Hesler, Charles F. Lummis, and Spence Air Photos.

The published works contain photographs by Peabody. The manuscript material provides information about Peabody's negatives; contains catalogs of Peabody's works for sale; describes Peabody's commerical dealings as both a photographer and seller of photographic equipment; and contains ephemeral material collected by Peabody throughout his life.

Biog. note
Henry Greenwood Peabody (1855-1951), photographer, lecturer, and publisher of educational slides and films, produced thousands of images documenting the American landscape.

Peabody was born in St. Louis, Missouri and graduated from Dartmouth College in 1876. It was while a senior at Dartmouth that Peabody first became interested in photography, producing views of the Dartmouth campus and scenes along the New England coast.

After leaving Dartmouth, he spent an additional year at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology studying architecture, electricity, and physics. After working for the Western Electric Company for a few years, he set up a studio first with Alexander Hesler in Chicago, and then in Boston in 1886, where he remained until his wife's death in 1898.

In Boston, he specialized in marine, landscape and architectural photography. He served as the official photographer for the Boston and Maine Railroad and the Great Northern Railway, photographed the Americas Cup races, and won numerous photographic awards.

In 1899, he traveled to Mexico as photographer to the American Architectural Expedition; his photographs were published in "Spanish-Colonial Architecture in Mexico" by Sylvester Baxter. In 1900 Peabody accepted a position with the Detroit Publishing Company, the largest postcard publisher in the United States. He served as field photographer on both the east and west coasts until 1908. Shortly after joining the Detroit Publishing Company, Peabody relocated to Pasadena, and his primary focus shifted to the landscape of the American West. He also traveled to England and France in 1908 to photograph cathedrals and other architectural monuments.

He published the "Swastika Educational Series," series of lantern slides, film slides, and films with accompanying narratives, that focused on national parks in the American West. He also delivered illustrated lectures that covered sites in California and the American West.

Peabody's later years were spent selling photographic equipment and photographing the landscape around his home in the San Gabriel Valley in Southern California. He died at his home in Glendora, California, one month shy of his ninety-sixth birthday.

titleCulin Archival Collection Series 2: collecting expeditions 1898-1928 1903-1928 (bulk).
repositoryThe Brooklyn Museum Libraries and Archives
collection titleSeries 2 documents Culin's expeditions, through which he actively sought to develop the Native American, eastern European, and Asian collections of the Department of Ethnology at the Brooklyn Museum.

The seventeen Brooklyn Museum expeditions fall into three units, each with the goal of developing comprehensive collections: Native American Cultures (1903-08, 1911, 1917); Asia (1909, 1912-13, 1913-14); and eastern Europe (1920-28). The series also documents three earlier trips made while Culin was in Philadelphia.

Culin's collecting and expeditions are documented in diary-style expedition reports, illustrations, ephemera and appendices, chapbooks and financial records, as well as in watercolor and oil paintings by Herbert B. Tschudy.
Subseries 2.1 is comprised of the detailed documentation Culin amassed during his many collecting expeditions.

These reports are heavily illustrated, containing photographs, drawings, newspaper clippings, correspondence, postcards, and assorted ephemera collected by Culin in his travels.

Descriptive emphasis is on collecting, although the narrative also includes descriptions of other museums and their exhibitions, visits to collectors, dealers, donors and makers of objects; extensive description of his physical journeying, fellow passengers, lodgings, meals and entertainment.

Two reports also include detailed appendices: "Census of the Zuni Indians" (1904), by E. F. Davis; and "Origin of the Navajo Order of Naal'oi baba," by Father Juvenel Schnorbus, and "Zuni Notes," a transcription of interviews with Nick Graham (Zuni Nick), both from 1907. From 1904-23, reports include decorative frontispieces by Herbert Bolivar Tschudy; most include an itinerary.

Culin collected actively on exhibitions throughout North America and British Columbia, acquiring over nine thousand objects between 1903 and 1922, describing many in great detail. Reports for the Southwest contain many photographs, including images by noted photographers Ben Wittick and A C. Vroman, as well as by Culin.

Reports from China and Japan provide less detail about objects collected, but describe Culin's travels in great detail. Reports from eastern Europe focus on collecting costumes and textiles, which are depicted in numerous postcards; Culin's political commentary is included as well.

Dealers, collectors and museum professionals are featured prominently in these reports. On the North American trips these include traders Charles L. Day, J. L. Hubbell, John Hudson, Thomas Keam, Charles Lummis, C. F. Newcombe, and Andrew Vanderwagen, and the Franciscan Brothers at St. Michaels;

in Asia, John Batchelor, Lockwood DeForest, K.O. Kusakabi, Dr. Neil Gordon Munro, Frederick Starr, Toko Takayemagi, and Yeti Takemashi; for European trips, Louis Clark, John DeVegh, Andrew LeCoq, and William O. Oldman.

Subseries 2.2 consists of pocket-sized chapbooks in which Culin made brief entries tracking his travel expenses and object purchases; some include accession numbers.

Subseries 2.3 is comprised of expense reports, including purchase lists, voucher numbers, travel expense lists and receipts.

Subseries 2.4 includes oil and watercolor paintings made by Museum Artist Herbert B. Tschudy (Judy), who accompanied Culin on several of his early expeditions, documenting scenes of Native American people in New Mexico, Arizona, California, and British Columbia that were then used to provide backdrops for museum installations.

Biographical/historical note
Stewart Culin (1858-1929), ethnologist and museum curator, worked at the University of Pennsylvania Museum of archaeology and Anthropology from 1890 to 1903, and served as Curator of Ethnology at The Brooklyn Museum from 1903 until his death.

titlePapers and Addenda of Grace Nicholson, 1784-1975 (bulk 1900-1951)  
repositoryThe Huntington Library
collection titleThis collection consists of two distinct sections: the Grace Nicholson papers (2,926 pieces) and addenda (1,444 pieces).

The papers are primarily correspondence, while the addenda is primarily notes. Both relate to Grace Nicholson (d. 1948) and her work in the fields of Native American and Asian art.

There are many letters from Native Americans to Nicholson and extensive diaries and notes that Nicholson kept on her buying trips through Native American territory, especially of the Karok, Klamath, and Pomo Indians.

Subject matter includes Native American legends, folklore, vocabulary, tribal festivals, basket making, business in art trade, and living conditions.
There is also a considerable amount of correspondence from China, Japan, and Korea between Nicholson and her buyers.

Among the subjects covered are Chinese art and architecture, Japanese art, Koreans art, Javanese textiles, Siamese art, Philippine art, life and social conditions in Asia, and the business of trading Asian art.

Being a well-known dealer in Native American and Asian art, Nicholson was in contact with many artists, such as Frederick Arthur Bridgman, W. Herbert Dunton, Sadakichi Hartmann, Elizabeth Conrad Hickox, Louise Merrill Hickox, Grace Carpenter Hudson, George Wharton James, Lillian Miller, Hovsep T. Pushman, Joseph Henry Sharp, and Millard Sheets.

Nicholson also purchased materials for institutions such as the Field Museum of Natural History, the Honolulu Academy of Arts, the Los Angeles Museum of History, Science, and Art, the Pasadena Art Museum, and the Southwest Museum (Los Angeles, Calif.).

Her intimate relationships with Native Americans give particular insight into their lives and culture. Thus she was a key source of information about them and historians and academics sought her out, including A.L. (Alfred Lewis) Kroeber, Charles Fletcher Lummis, and C. Hart (Clinton Hart) Merriam.
Nicholson also received correspondence from political figures such as Frederick Webb Hodge, Herbert Hoover, Hiram Johnson, and Franklin D. (Franklin Delano) Roosevelt.


Biog. note
Grace Nicholson (d. 1948) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvannia in 1877. Partly because of her health but also because of a desire for adventure in the West, Nicholson arrived in Pasadena, California in 1901.

With some borrowed money she opened up her own shop to sell Native American wares. By January of 1902 she was purchasing Native American baskets and other items in association with Carrol S. Hartman.

She traveled throughout Arizona, California, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington. With the popularity of the wares of Native Americans waning, combined with higher prices and a lack of supply, Nicholson moved on to another passion of hers, Asian art. In 1931 she built her home/store/gallery at 46 N. Los Robles Ave. in Pasadena, which was designed and constructed after a Chinese temple.

In 1943 Nicholson offered her Los Robles building to the Pasadena Art Institute which eventually became the Pasadena Art Museum and is now the Pacific Asia Museum. Getting on in years, Nicholson left the care of her shop to her assistants Thyra H. Maxwell and Estelle Bynum. From February 1948 onwards she suffered from a lengthy illness and passed away on August 31, 1948.
