Frederic Ward Putnam

Department of Anthropology, University of California

September 1903

Putnam describes the permanent department as he envisions it, guided by an Executive Committee consisting of Putnam, Wheeler, Hearst, and Merriam, and including Officers of Instruction and the Museum. The work of the Department is summarized as an “Ethnological and Archaeological Survey of California.” Much of the archaeological work, however, would not be accomplished until the California Archaeological Survey was established by Robert Heizer in 1948.
