Alfred Louis Kroeber: The field and relations of Anthropology [Sketch]

Alfred Louis Kroeber

“The field and relations of Anthropology”

ca. 1925-1927

By the 1920s, with the growing scope and complexity of anthropology as a discipline, Kroeber recognized that the faculty and curriculum must expand as well. In planning for the future needs of the Department, he envisioned anthropology and its relation to other disciplines as represented in this sketch. With respect to archaeology and physical anthropology, he notes (at bottom) “the shaded area is undeveloped in the University’s curriculum.”
