Robert Harry Lowie: Lecture Notes for Anthropology 124, 'Primitive Religion'

Robert Harry Lowie

Lecture Notes for Anthropology 124, “Primitive Religion”


With the hiring of Lowie in 1921, the burden of instruction that had largely been carried by Kroeber could again be shared with another permanent faculty member, and new courses could be offered. These are notes for a course that drew extensively on Lowie’s research on Plains Indian cultures. A year later, he published a comprehensive book on the subject by the same title.
