Overview

An ethnologist and archaeologist, George Hubbard Pepper specialized in the Indian cultures of the American Southwest. He was famous for his discoveries at Pueblo Bonito in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, and he also completed important work in Mexico and Ecuador. A prolific writer, Pepper became a popular lecturer, noted for his eloquence.

From Tulane University’s Latin American Library, this collection contains manuscripts written or collected by Pepper during his more than 25 years of fieldwork. It also includes maps, textile fragments, paintings, drawings, clippings, articles, and photographs. Overall, the collection contains 612 items.

The papers are especially noteworthy for their materials on the customs, languages, textiles, pottery, religions, and lifestyles of the Navaho, Hopi, and Zuñi tribes. The papers are of great interest to researchers in anthropology, ethnology, archaeology, and Latin and Native American studies.
