Biographical/Historical note

Anthropology courses at Washington State University originally fell under the department of Sociology, in the college of Arts and Sciences. In 1963, Anthropology became its own department. Through the years the department has had a number of homes on campus, from Commons Hall to Johnson Tower, and finally to the current building in College Hall, which was renovated in 1983 to house both the department and the Anthropology Research Lab (Center for Northwest Anthropology).

Arrangement note

The collection was arranged at processing into three series plus a folder of annual reports. The three series are: correspondence, faculty meeting minutes, and the Washington State Research Center newsletter. The correspondence series is further broken down into two subseries: correspondence of the chairman of the department, and correspondence of faculty. Those series are arranged alphabetically and then by date. The newsletters are arranged chronologically. A significant amount of material was discarded during processing, primarily for privacy reasons.
