A Project of the American Anthropological Association Centennial Commission
We are making available for educational purposes a large selection of articles published in the American Anthropologist on the subject of the history of the discipline of anthropology. This is not a selection of
papers of historical significance, but papers on the subject of the history of the field, along with some obituaries. Our goal is to facilitate learning and teaching the history of anthropology.
There are twelve categories of articles (eight currently available), all reproduced from the American
Anthropologist, printable and downloadable in Adobe pdf format. Each group of papers is accompanied by a brief introduction
by Jonathan Marks.
