Abstract:
Piedras Negras is a Maya site in Guatemala particularly noted for the beautifully sculpted stelae and hieroglyphic inscriptions it has yielded. Between 1931 and 1939 the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted extensive excavations at this site. John Allen Mason led the first two seasons of work at the site (1931–1932), and Linton Satterthwaite directed the remaining six seasons (1933–1939, excluding 1938). Most of the monuments at the Museum borrowed from Guatemala were returned in 1947; only Stela 14 and one leg from Altar 4 remain on display in the Museum today. The textual records from the excavations of Piedras Negras consist of 11 linear feet of correspondence, financial records, field notes and diaries, catalogs, and reports and publication materials. The arrangement of the records reflects the original order insofar as could be detected, and portions that had been separated over time were re-integrated into this scheme.

Abstract:
Robert Burkitt lived and worked in Guatemala for most of his life. A graduate of Harvard University, he first traveled to Central America in 1894 with George Gordon as Gordon's assistant on the Fourth Coban Expedition. Burkitt became enamored with the culture and language of the Maya and never returned to North America. He traveled the countryside, corresponding with Gordon, and collecting items for the Museum under a loosely binding agreement with Gordon and later Horace Jayne. Burkitt's letters and catalogues are rich documents depicting the cultural, linguistic, topological, and historical features of the Guatemala Highlands. Burkitt wrote and worked from the areas of Chama, Chipal, Coban, Senahu, Chiantla, Chocola, and other areas of the Alta Verapaz region. He produced a detailed catalogue of his discoveries accompanied by photgraphs and drawings. Among Burkitt's discoveries is the Ratinixul Vase unearthed in 1923. His work was published in the Museum Journal in 1924 and 1930. Burkitt also wrote about the languages of the Maya, leaving an unfinished grammar and dictionary of the Kekchi language at his death in 1945.

Biography/History

Eugene Alexandrovich Golomshtok was a Russian emigre who arrived in the U.S. in the wake of the revolution in Russia at the age of 20. Several early publications involved Native American archaeology and the Paleolithics of Southern Russia and Siberia. He failed to attain any academic positions but became affiliated with the Penn Museum under the championship of Horace Jayne then the Director of the Museum.

Golomshtok opened doors to archaeology in Russia and participated in two expeditions before being refused a visa in 1934 for a third. While the reason is not known, Golomshtok intimated that his comments regarding missing persons in Russia may have enraged government officials during the period of the purge. Golomshtok's communications with the Museum became less and less following his visa refusal partly because he could no longer work in Russia and partly because of the retirement of Horace Jayne. After the early 1940s, Golomshtok did not publish. He died in 1950 at the age of 52.

In the 1930's the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted a series of three expeditions to Russia, originally intended as an ongoing project. Although the first two (1931, 1933) were successful, the last one (1934) was aborted.

The earliest, entitled the "Russian Project," was co-sponsored with the Peabody and Fogg Museums of Harvard University. Together, these institutions sent one representative, Eugene Golomshtok of the University of Pennsylvania Museum, to Leningrad. The purpose of the "Russian Project" was to establish contacts for the exchange and dissemination of information relating to developments in archaeology and anthropology, including publications and artifacts. Golomshtok, a former student of Kazan University and a graduate of the University of California, secured during his 1931 three month stay contracts between the University of Pennsylvania Museum and Russia for the "permanent exchange of publications, photographs of objects in the museums, and of original manuscripts [and] for loans and the exchange of collections." Shortly thereafter, the University of Pennsylvania Museum received an initial shipment of 500 volumes of publications, 400 photographs, and a number of summaries and original manuscripts regarding anthropological and archaeological research. This highly successful trip engendered, in 1932, an invitation from the U.S.S.R. for the University of Pennsylvania Museum to participate, the following year, in an ethnological expedition to the Ob Region of Siberia. Unfortunately, when Golomshtok arrived in Leningrad in the spring of 1933 with the equipment and funds supplied by the Museum, he was informed by the government that he been refused permission to go on the Siberian expedition. Following months of efforts at negotiations, Golomshtok instead organized an excavation at Esske-Kermen in the Crimea, jointly with the State Academy for the History of Material Culture (i.e., the "First Joint Soviet-American Expedition in the Crimea"). After the successful completion of this project, and the signing of additional contracts for the exchange of materials, the Russian government invited Golomshtok to lead another excavation in 1934 — a rescue operation in the Manich River area of the Caucasus. However, when Golomshtok arrived in Paris en route to Leningrad in the summer of 1934, he was inexplicably refused a visa by Russian authorities to re-enter Russia. All attempts to straighten out the situation failed, and Golomshtok eventually returned to the United States. As troubles continued, many of the signed contracts for the exchange of material and information were not honored by the U.S.S.R. and all ties finally broke down.

Biography/History

Alan Rowe, born in Hornchurch, Essex, England in 1891 spent his life not only in his homeland but in Australia, Egypt, Palestine and Libya in pursuit of the study of Egyptology. Rowe was introduced to Egypt as a child when he was captivated by the collection of antiquities at the Whitechapel Museum. He was employed initially as a journalist and emigrated to Australia where he volunteered in Museums and gave lectures in history at the University of Adelaide.

Rowe's first field work came as an assistant to C.S.Fisher on the 1922 expedition to Palestine (Beth Shan). Following this experience, Rowe served as the chief archaeological assistant to George Reisner on the joint Harvard-Boston Museum of Fine Art expedition to Giza. While Reisner was away in America, Rowe discovered the tomb of Hetep-heres, a discovery of great import. Rowe continued to work on other sites in Egypt including Meydum for the University of Pennsylvania Museum and the minor site of Gezer. He was appointed curator of the Graeco-Roman Museum in Alexandria where he served from 1940 to 1949. During WWII, Rowe twice reported on the state of the monuments in Cyrenaica to the British War Office in Cairo.

Rowe turned to academia in 1950, working as a special lecturer in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Manchester until 1952. His last four expeditions were to the tombs and cemeteries in Cyrene.

Rowe published several books and many articles based on his work. Unfortunately, he was unable to find a publisher for his Meydum manuscript, a goal he pursued until 1955.

Biography/History

Piedras Negras is a Maya site in Guatemala particularly noted for the beautifully sculpted stelae and hieroglyphic inscriptions it has yielded. The site, located in the northwestern corner of the Department of Petén, Guatemala, along the Usumacinta River, which forms in this area the border between Guatemala and Mexico, was discovered in 1894 by a Mexican lumber man, and brought to the attention of Teobert Maler, a pioneer archaeologist and explorer of the Ancient Maya. Maler visited the site in 1895 and 1899 under the auspices of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University, but conducted no excavations. His work consisted of disinterring and photographing the large carved stelae and other monuments. His report was published in 1901 as Volume II, No. 1 of the Memoirs of the Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology. Thereafter the site was visited several times, beginning in 1921, by Sylvanus G. Morley for the purpose of recording glyphic inscriptions. Morley took many photographs and notes and made many drawings of the glyphs. His assistant, Oliver Ricketson, made a map of the site, which was later superseded by the map of University of Pennsylvania Museum.

Between 1931 and 1939 the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted extensive excavations at this site. J. Alden Mason, Curator of the American Section, went to Guatemala in 1930 to select the site and obtain an excavation permit that would allow for the removal on loan to the Museum of half of the monumental sculpture uncovered by the expedition. Mason's visit also served to make renewed arrangements with Robert J. Burkitt, who was also excavating in Guatemala for the Museum at this time (see separate Record Group). Mason made some artifact collections on this trip, which are documented in the records. In December of the same year Mason visited the site again as a member of the Museum's aerial survey of Petén and Yucatan.

The site was selected because of its fine sculpture, its early origin, and the fact that little work had been done in that area of the Maya world up to that time. It was also relatively more accessible than many other Maya cities. Mason led the first two seasons of work at the site (1931–1932), and returned again in 1936 to inspect the progress of excavations. Funding for the first three seasons was provided by Eldridge R. Johnson, founder and former President of the Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, NJ. Linton Satterthwaite was Assistant Director under Mason, and directed the remaining six seasons (1933–1939, excluding 1938). The seasons ran generally from February to May, but sometimes began or ended late, that is in March and June.

The work of the first two seasons concentrated heavily on building a road to the site through the jungle and the removal of a number of monumental stone stelae and other sculpture, half of which were sent to Guatemala City and the other half to the University of Pennsylvania Museum. Included among these was Lintel 3, dated ca. 750 AD, still considered to be among the most beautiful specimens of Maya sculpture, and Stela 14 (on display in the Museum's Mesoamerican Gallery), credited with giving Tatiana Proskouriakoff the inspiration for her decipherment of Maya hieroglyphics. The second season produced a new map of the site, but also saw part of the camp catch on fire, resulting in the loss of part of the photographic record.

Under Satterthwaite's direction, the focus of the excavations shifted from the more glamorous task of bringing carved monuments to the exhibition galleries of the Museum to purely archaeological questions, such as uncovering architectural remains, establishing building sequences, and stratigraphy. Satterthwaite concentrated heavily on the architecture of the city, excavating a total of eleven temples and seventeen palaces, as well as two ball courts and a number of sweathouses. As a result the collecting of artifacts became less important in the later seasons. In 1934 and 1935 Satterthwaite visited the nearby site of Yaxchilán and in 1936 the site of Palenque, to obtain architectural data and measurements for comparative purposes. Some of the records for these trips can be found among the Piedras Negras record group, but most of them have been transferred to a separate group, Linton Satterthwaite— Various Sites (see separate listing).

The expedition staff changed almost every season, with the exception of Satterthwaite and his wife, who participated every year, and were the only Museum personnel in 1934. T. Egan Wyer was the engineer for the first season, responsible for constructing the road. Fred P. Parris, architect, took over for Wyer for the second and third seasons. He surveyed and mapped the site. Mary Butler was responsible for artifact analysis, specifically pottery, and stratigraphy. She worked in 1932 and 1933. Tatiana Proskouriakoff, an eminent figure in Maya archaeology, especially the study of Maya art, architecture, and epigraphy, began her archaeological career on the Piedras Negras expedition during the seasons of 1936 and 1937. She later worked for the Carnegie Institution in Washington, DC and Harvard University. Other members of the expedition included David W. Amram, Jr. (1932), Francis M. Cresson, Jr. (1935–1937), William S., Jr. and Marian A. Godfrey (1939), and representatives of the Guatemalan Government. Marian A. Godfrey (later Boyer) eventually became Secretary (1942–1949) and Acting Director (1945–1946) of the Museum.

Most of the monuments borrowed from Guatemala were returned to the country of origin in January, 1947, after an extension to the original loan. Only Stela 14 and one leg from Altar 4 remain on display in the Museum's Mesoamerican Gallery today.

A number of publications have resulted from the findings at Piedras Negras, but Satterthwaite never finished all the reports he intended to produce. Much material remains in this collection of use to the Maya scholar and student. See the attached Appendix I for a complete list of Museum publications covering this site.

Biography/History

Robert James Burkitt, born on January 18, 1869 in Athenry, County Galway, Ireland, was the son of Reverend Thomas Henry Burkitt and Emma Eliza Parsons. At age 14, due to economic conditions, he was sent to live with an aunt in Nova Scotia where he attended Dalhousie College. Burkitt took honors in mathematics there and enrolled at Harvard University to study mining. While he was known as a recluse among the Harvard students, Burkitt developed a friendship with George Byron Gordon based on their shared interests in engineering and their talents in drafting and art. Burkitt received his A.B. from Harvard in 1891.

Burkitt first traveled to Guatemala in 1894 as George Gordon's assistant on the Fourth Copan Expedition. In the five months of the expedition, Gordon instructed Burkitt in the basics of excavation. Gordon returned to Cambridge when the excavation was completed, but it is believed that Burkitt never returned to North America, becoming enamored of the culture and language of the Maya. In his early years in Guatemala, Burkitt visited the Kekchi-speaking Maya who lived in the Alta Verapaz. He wandered the countryside, visiting the Indian villages, learning the different languages and customs of the native people, and following native guides to sacred ruins. Burkitt never established a permanent residence in Guatemala, living with one group of friends or another. He rented an apartment in Guatemala City when business took him there, under his pseudonym, Mr. Brown.

Burkitt maintained a sporadic correspondence with his friend George Gordon who by 1910 was Director of the Free Museum of Science and Art (later renamed The University Museum). Burkitt had attained some recognition for articles on linguistics, "Notes on the Kekchi Language" having been published in American Anthropologist. Burkitt and Gordon entered into an agreement whereby Burkitt would devote a portion of each year to exploring and acquiring artifacts for the Museum for a monthly fee plus expenses. This agreement stood for many years despite attempts to get Burkitt to sign contracts and make changes to his highly eccentric style of work. Burkitt could be critical and prickly in his correspondence especially opinionated about the work of others on the Indian language and changes to his material when published.

Burkitt's letters and his Catalogue never fail to contain information on the folklore, ritual, crafts, and language of the Maya. The collection contains regular correspondence with George Gordon until Gordon's death in 1927. Burkitt then kept the Museum apprised of his exploits through letters to Miss McHugh, the Treasurer. When Horace H.F. Jayne took over as Director, Burkitt communicated with him. In addition to letters and records relating to shipments to the Museum, Burkitt kept extensive catalogue entries for each item accompanied by references to geography and the excavation process connected to their discovery. Photographs depict the sites, stages of excavation, and objects discovered. Many of the pictures are mounted by Burkitt. His own discoveries are accompanied by photographs of items purchased from collectors.

Burkitt discovered The Ratinlixul Vase, recovered in 1923. His works, published in the Museum Journal, included "A Journey in Northern Guatemala" in 1924 and "Excavations at Chocola and Explorations in the Highlands of Western Guatemala" in 1930.

Burkitt's interest in linguistics was ever present. He worked for many years on a grammar and dictionary of the Kekchi language; "investigating grammar in my own way". This work was not completed when he suffered a fatal stroke in 1945. Burkitt's papers were thought to be lost until Elin Danien, then Coordinator of Museum Events, visited Guatemala in 1985. Danien contacted relatives of Kensett Champney, a friend with whom Burkitt lived, and discovered that some early notebooks were indeed still in the family's possession.

Burkitt is buried in the British Cemetery in Guatemala City.

Biography/History

Tepe Gawra in northern Iraq was the site of excavations uncovering twenty-six levels of occupation spanning the years from about 5000 B.C. to 1500 B.C. This expedition was funded by the University Museum, A.S.O.R.- Baghdad, and Dropsie College in Philadelphia. Excavations took place from fall to spring, directed by E. A. Speiser (University of Pennsylvania, University Museum and A.S.O.R.- Baghdad) for the 1930-1931, 1931-1932, and 1936-1937 seasons, and by C. Bache (University Museum) for the 1932-1933, 1934-1936, and the 1937-1938 seasons. During 1933-1934, work started late because of complications due to a change in the Antiquities laws and was not represented by a separate field report.

Scope and Contents

The Golomshtok Papers consist primarily of correspondence between Horace H. F. Jayne (Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum) and Golomshtok, and between the University of Pennsylvania Museum (in the person of Golomshtok and/or Jayne) and Russian authorities and institutions concerning the expeditions (1931, 1933, "1934") and other related matters (1930-1944). Also included are numerous inventories of artifacts and publications (often related to exchanges), object cards, an object catalogue, photographs, and an annotated bibliography compiled in the 1950's. For related correspondence, see Golomshtok's letters to Fewkes in the Fewkes Papers. Photographs collected from the Golomshtok Expeditions are stored in the Archives, and negatives are listed here and in the image catalogue.

Object Catalogue

The catalogue in the Registrar's Office contains the following inventory numbers for the items acquired by and through the Golomshtok Expeditions:

33-41, 33-44, 33-45, 33-47, 33-48, 33-49, 33-50, 33-51, 33-52, 33-55, 33-56. 33-57, 34-40, 34-41

Alan Rowe, born in Hornchurch, Essex, England in 1891 spent his life not only in his homeland but in Australia, Egypt, Palestine and Libya in pursuit of the study of Egyptology. He excavated with C.S. Fisher at Beth Shan and George Reisner at Giza before serving as Field Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum Expedition to Meydum, Egypt.

In addition to his expeditions, Rowe lectured in history at the University of Adelaide, Australia and in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Manchester.

The Meydum, Egypt Expedition records consist of twelve archival boxes plus oversize materials. The majority consist of correspondence, reports, and preparation for publication. The collection is divided into twelve series. In addition to the correspondence, field reports, notebooks and publication materials are financial reoords, various lists and photographs. The group is completed by other graphic materials such as plans, maps and squeezes.

The records had been reviewed and box lists made prior to processing. The order of the records was largely maintained with re-organization of some of the correspondence and publication records needed for clarity. For example, many of the communications with Museum Director Horace Jayne were interspersed with materials from other series.

Rowe detailed his work in lengthy letters to Horace Jayne and former director Battiscombe Gunn, in field notebooks and diaries. He wrote often to his researchers to obtain information about translations, grafitti and coins. The materials are rich in information. He maintained typed copies of much of the research findings for publication purposes. Additional communications with Battiscombe Gunn are found in the publications series.

Rowe displayed his photographs in three hardback albums with a corresponding register and indexes by year. The large groups of plans and maps reflect Rowe's prganization by publication volume, topography, location, structure and/or type of find.

Scope and Contents

The textual records from the excavations of Piedras Negras consist of 11 linear feet of correspondence, financial records, field notes and diaries, catalogs, and reports and publication materials. The arrangement of the records reflects the original order insofar as could be detected, and portions that had been separated over time were re-integrated into this scheme. The material has been divided into the following eight series: Correspondence, Financial Records, Field Notes, Object Catalogs, Miscellaneous Notes – By Structure, Miscellaneous Notes – Alphabetical, Reports and Publications, and Photograph Catalogs and Photographs.

The correspondence consists mainly of letters from J. Alden Mason and Linton Satterthwaite, as field directors, reporting to Museum Director Horace H. F. Jayne on the progress of excavations, and letters to representatives of the Guatemalan and Mexican Governments regarding the contract, export permits, and other logistics. A copy of the contract is included in this series. The records from Mason's preliminary trip to Guatemala in 1930 were originally filed with the records of Robert Burkitt's excavations (see separate finding aid), since Mason met with Burkitt on the trip. However, they are more relevant to the Piedras Negras expedition and therefore have been moved here. The photocopies of letters of David Amram to his family were donated in 1985 by Amram himself, and placed in this series. Many pages of correspondence from the 1932 season were partly burned. These had to be photocopied onto acid-free paper for preservation purposes, and the originals were discarded.

The arrangement of the field notes was problematic, since Satterthwaite did not keep his notes in diaries by year, but had divided them into notebooks by architectural structures and other subjects. Satterthwaite's numbering system for the notebooks has been retained. J. Alden Mason's notes are arranged chronologically at the beginning of the series. Other notes by Satterthwaite, Mary Butler, and Mrs. Satterthwaite have been arranged by staff member and thereunder chronologically, and placed after the numbered notebooks. Surveyors' notebooks, containing mapping information and measurements, complete the series. Margaret Satterthwaite's diary (1931) does not specifically discuss excavation operations, and is restricted due to its personal nature. Some of Mary Butler's notebooks have been added to this series from a 1989 donation from her husband, Clifford Lewis III.

Notebooks discussing Satterhwaite's visits to other sites in the Maya area, originally filed in this record group, have been moved to a separate group, Linton Satterthwaite— Various Sites. The notes contain material that has little bearing on the Piedras Negras expedition, even though some trips to these sites were undertaken during Satterthwaite's seasons at Piedras Negras, specifically to Yaxchilán and Palenque.

The two series of Miscellaneous Notes (By Structure and Alphabetical) were originally filed with Linton Satterthwaite's records as Curator of the American Section. Their order was retained but they were moved to the Piedras Negras records. These series consist of notes taken in the field or written up as part of the post-season analyses, and cover a variety of topics and subjects. Included is also material used in preparation of publications. Complete reports and drafts of papers, however, are located in the series Reports and Publications.

Photograph Catalogs and Photographs includes a complete set of field photographs pasted in albums. Additional sets of prints can be found in Special Collections— Photographic Archives— Standard Size Prints. The remaining series are described below. Oversize maps, plans, and drawings have yet to be described.

Scope and Contents

The Robert Burkitt Excavation Records consist of 1.4 linear feet of correspondence, catalogues and reports, photographs, and notes and studies on the collection. The records have been compiled from the material sent to the Museum by Robert Burkitt from his exploration and excavations in Guatemala during the years 1913 through 1939 and the work on the collection by J. Alden Mason. Notes on the collection by William R. Coe comment on Burkitt and the work of Mary Butler, an expert on the pottery of the region. Studies of the collection by students of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania are also included.

The correspondence from Burkitt to the Museum is arranged chronologically. His catalogue and reports contain catalogue numbers that are not chronological but are referenced to his letters. The photographs, numbered from 101 to 326 then 804 to 807 were divided into folders using the numbers. Mason's notes are undated but those from William R.Coe date from 1953. The studies on the collection are from 1977 and 1978. Mason's notes were divided into three folders, a notebook, a chart and chart notes, and notes on Chama. Coe's material was also divided into folders of notes, photographs, and drawings.

The correspondence series reflects Burkitt's tendency to write infrequently, mostly to his friend George Gordon, and with a great attention to detail. Some letters are very long and contain information on his travels in the area. Burkitt included drawings and comments on the existing maps of the areas. Political commentary is sometimes included and Burkitt shows worries about the security of the mail to and from the museum. At times, the letters are lists of objects being sent to the museum, lists of expenses, and shipping information. Communications are written from Coban, Senahu, San Cristobal, Chiantla, Verapaz and the ruins near Chipal. Later letters come from Ciudad Guatemala and Belize.

The letters from the period 1924 to 1926 are sometimes accompanied by responses from George Gordon which have been photocopied from Gordon's collection of letters. (see Letters G.B. Gordon-Burkitt, Special Collections, Bound Volumes, Letterbooks, G.B. Gordon).

A separate folder was created for one correspondence from Robert Burkitt's father, J.H. Burkitt, to the Museum dated 1915. Reverend Burkitt sought information about the whereabouts of his son. The Catalogues and Reports of the Robert Burkitt excavation records contain descriptions of all of the items sent to the Museum from the Guatemala sites. All entries in this folder are hand-written in phonetic English. The notes are in good condition and accompanied by small, exquisite drawings of the items. Divided into three columns on each page, the first column contains the number assigned by the museum, the second, the number of the item assigned by Burkitt in numerical order, and the third a description of the item. The first portion of the catalogue consists mostly of pottery. Burkitt often writes several pages of information about an object or region.

Burkitt's later entries are type-written in the same phonetic style. For these entries, Burkitt makes use of hand-drawn maps of the area showing the arrangement of the mounds and graves in it. He includes rubbings of fragments, carvings, and pots found. Burkitt refers to the number of the photograph in the collection which corresponds to the item of the dig.

The original photographs of Robert Burkitt are contained in envelopes or mounted by Burkitt on heavy paper with notes and encased in mylar. Pictures of the objects are usually mounted. Burkitt meticulously referenced the photos to the text of the catalogue. In addition, the negative numbers are provided on the back of many photographs. The photographs depict the regions of Chocola, Kixpek, Ratinixul, Belize, Quatsoltenango, San Vicente, El Castillo, Alta Verapaz, Aintun, the Sayte River region, Coban, Xolchun, and Kuchumata, among others. In addition to objects found by Burkitt, there are also photographs of items from the Kanter Collection, part of another "private collection in Polo Gordo", and the collection of Henry Kummerfeldt.

Four folders contain photographs related to Burkitt's correspondence with George Gordon in July, October, and November 1913. One folder of these photographs is undated. Material published in the Museum Journal in 1918 and 1930 are contained in a separate folder, with negatives for only a few. The negatives, in envelopes, may reflect a need for conservation assessment.

Notes and Studies on the Collection are contained in eight folders. The material reflects comments and charts by J. Alden Mason and notes from William Coe. Coe's notes notes relate not only to Burkitt but also to Mary Butler, a research associate at the University of Pennsylvania who was an expert on the pottery of the Maya Indians of Guatemala. The mounted drawings of pottery included with this series are believed to be part of Mary Butler's work. Many of the drawings are numbered and are from Chipal and Chama. A separate "analysis" of a "small tubular object"(# 11258) by A.E.Parkinson is also contained with the series on notes and studies.

The series also contains hand-written course notes and papers written by students for the class, "W. Coe Anthropology Class: Studies of Burkitt and Butler". The papers deal with the sites at Tambor, Kixpek, Chama, Chicun, San Pedro Carcha, and an analysis of Mary Butler's excavations and work in Guatemala. Site diagrams are present for the San Pedro Carcha area.

Scope and Contents

Where possible, a chronological order was imposed on the Near East records. Photographs were retained with the documents when they directly referred to content. Otherwise, the photographic collections hold material relating to excavation, objects, and travel photographs (see standard size photograph inventory). Large maps and drawings are kept in the Oversize cases, and smaller oversize items in the Print Cabinet (see inventories).

VI. Object Control and Photo Sheets – 8 ½ x 11 inch sheets with lists of objects or photos, written in Mosul, Baghdad or Philadelphia (recapitulations) in Box 2 (file 7, 8), box 3 (file 3, 5, 6, 8, 9)

Abstract:
Piedras Negras is a Maya site in Guatemala particularly noted for the beautifully sculpted stelae and hieroglyphic inscriptions it has yielded. Between 1931 and 1939 the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted extensive excavations at this site. John Allen Mason led the first two seasons of work at the site (1931–1932), and Linton Satterthwaite directed the remaining six seasons (1933–1939, excluding 1938). Most of the monuments at the Museum borrowed from Guatemala were returned in 1947; only Stela 14 and one leg from Altar 4 remain on display in the Museum today. The textual records from the excavations of Piedras Negras consist of 11 linear feet of correspondence, financial records, field notes and diaries, catalogs, and reports and publication materials. The arrangement of the records reflects the original order insofar as could be detected, and portions that had been separated over time were re-integrated into this scheme.

Abstract:
Robert Burkitt lived and worked in Guatemala for most of his life. A graduate of Harvard University, he first traveled to Central America in 1894 with George Gordon as Gordon's assistant on the Fourth Coban Expedition. Burkitt became enamored with the culture and language of the Maya and never returned to North America. He traveled the countryside, corresponding with Gordon, and collecting items for the Museum under a loosely binding agreement with Gordon and later Horace Jayne. Burkitt's letters and catalogues are rich documents depicting the cultural, linguistic, topological, and historical features of the Guatemala Highlands. Burkitt wrote and worked from the areas of Chama, Chipal, Coban, Senahu, Chiantla, Chocola, and other areas of the Alta Verapaz region. He produced a detailed catalogue of his discoveries accompanied by photgraphs and drawings. Among Burkitt's discoveries is the Ratinixul Vase unearthed in 1923. His work was published in the Museum Journal in 1924 and 1930. Burkitt also wrote about the languages of the Maya, leaving an unfinished grammar and dictionary of the Kekchi language at his death in 1945.

Biography/History

Eugene Alexandrovich Golomshtok was a Russian emigre who arrived in the U.S. in the wake of the revolution in Russia at the age of 20. Several early publications involved Native American archaeology and the Paleolithics of Southern Russia and Siberia. He failed to attain any academic positions but became affiliated with the Penn Museum under the championship of Horace Jayne then the Director of the Museum.

Golomshtok opened doors to archaeology in Russia and participated in two expeditions before being refused a visa in 1934 for a third. While the reason is not known, Golomshtok intimated that his comments regarding missing persons in Russia may have enraged government officials during the period of the purge. Golomshtok's communications with the Museum became less and less following his visa refusal partly because he could no longer work in Russia and partly because of the retirement of Horace Jayne. After the early 1940s, Golomshtok did not publish. He died in 1950 at the age of 52.

In the 1930's the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted a series of three expeditions to Russia, originally intended as an ongoing project. Although the first two (1931, 1933) were successful, the last one (1934) was aborted.

The earliest, entitled the "Russian Project," was co-sponsored with the Peabody and Fogg Museums of Harvard University. Together, these institutions sent one representative, Eugene Golomshtok of the University of Pennsylvania Museum, to Leningrad. The purpose of the "Russian Project" was to establish contacts for the exchange and dissemination of information relating to developments in archaeology and anthropology, including publications and artifacts. Golomshtok, a former student of Kazan University and a graduate of the University of California, secured during his 1931 three month stay contracts between the University of Pennsylvania Museum and Russia for the "permanent exchange of publications, photographs of objects in the museums, and of original manuscripts [and] for loans and the exchange of collections." Shortly thereafter, the University of Pennsylvania Museum received an initial shipment of 500 volumes of publications, 400 photographs, and a number of summaries and original manuscripts regarding anthropological and archaeological research. This highly successful trip engendered, in 1932, an invitation from the U.S.S.R. for the University of Pennsylvania Museum to participate, the following year, in an ethnological expedition to the Ob Region of Siberia. Unfortunately, when Golomshtok arrived in Leningrad in the spring of 1933 with the equipment and funds supplied by the Museum, he was informed by the government that he been refused permission to go on the Siberian expedition. Following months of efforts at negotiations, Golomshtok instead organized an excavation at Esske-Kermen in the Crimea, jointly with the State Academy for the History of Material Culture (i.e., the "First Joint Soviet-American Expedition in the Crimea"). After the successful completion of this project, and the signing of additional contracts for the exchange of materials, the Russian government invited Golomshtok to lead another excavation in 1934 — a rescue operation in the Manich River area of the Caucasus. However, when Golomshtok arrived in Paris en route to Leningrad in the summer of 1934, he was inexplicably refused a visa by Russian authorities to re-enter Russia. All attempts to straighten out the situation failed, and Golomshtok eventually returned to the United States. As troubles continued, many of the signed contracts for the exchange of material and information were not honored by the U.S.S.R. and all ties finally broke down.

Biography/History

Alan Rowe, born in Hornchurch, Essex, England in 1891 spent his life not only in his homeland but in Australia, Egypt, Palestine and Libya in pursuit of the study of Egyptology. Rowe was introduced to Egypt as a child when he was captivated by the collection of antiquities at the Whitechapel Museum. He was employed initially as a journalist and emigrated to Australia where he volunteered in Museums and gave lectures in history at the University of Adelaide.

Rowe's first field work came as an assistant to C.S.Fisher on the 1922 expedition to Palestine (Beth Shan). Following this experience, Rowe served as the chief archaeological assistant to George Reisner on the joint Harvard-Boston Museum of Fine Art expedition to Giza. While Reisner was away in America, Rowe discovered the tomb of Hetep-heres, a discovery of great import. Rowe continued to work on other sites in Egypt including Meydum for the University of Pennsylvania Museum and the minor site of Gezer. He was appointed curator of the Graeco-Roman Museum in Alexandria where he served from 1940 to 1949. During WWII, Rowe twice reported on the state of the monuments in Cyrenaica to the British War Office in Cairo.

Rowe turned to academia in 1950, working as a special lecturer in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Manchester until 1952. His last four expeditions were to the tombs and cemeteries in Cyrene.

Rowe published several books and many articles based on his work. Unfortunately, he was unable to find a publisher for his Meydum manuscript, a goal he pursued until 1955.

Biography/History

Piedras Negras is a Maya site in Guatemala particularly noted for the beautifully sculpted stelae and hieroglyphic inscriptions it has yielded. The site, located in the northwestern corner of the Department of Petén, Guatemala, along the Usumacinta River, which forms in this area the border between Guatemala and Mexico, was discovered in 1894 by a Mexican lumber man, and brought to the attention of Teobert Maler, a pioneer archaeologist and explorer of the Ancient Maya. Maler visited the site in 1895 and 1899 under the auspices of the Peabody Museum of Harvard University, but conducted no excavations. His work consisted of disinterring and photographing the large carved stelae and other monuments. His report was published in 1901 as Volume II, No. 1 of the Memoirs of the Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology. Thereafter the site was visited several times, beginning in 1921, by Sylvanus G. Morley for the purpose of recording glyphic inscriptions. Morley took many photographs and notes and made many drawings of the glyphs. His assistant, Oliver Ricketson, made a map of the site, which was later superseded by the map of University of Pennsylvania Museum.

Between 1931 and 1939 the University of Pennsylvania Museum conducted extensive excavations at this site. J. Alden Mason, Curator of the American Section, went to Guatemala in 1930 to select the site and obtain an excavation permit that would allow for the removal on loan to the Museum of half of the monumental sculpture uncovered by the expedition. Mason's visit also served to make renewed arrangements with Robert J. Burkitt, who was also excavating in Guatemala for the Museum at this time (see separate Record Group). Mason made some artifact collections on this trip, which are documented in the records. In December of the same year Mason visited the site again as a member of the Museum's aerial survey of Petén and Yucatan.

The site was selected because of its fine sculpture, its early origin, and the fact that little work had been done in that area of the Maya world up to that time. It was also relatively more accessible than many other Maya cities. Mason led the first two seasons of work at the site (1931–1932), and returned again in 1936 to inspect the progress of excavations. Funding for the first three seasons was provided by Eldridge R. Johnson, founder and former President of the Victor Talking Machine Company of Camden, NJ. Linton Satterthwaite was Assistant Director under Mason, and directed the remaining six seasons (1933–1939, excluding 1938). The seasons ran generally from February to May, but sometimes began or ended late, that is in March and June.

The work of the first two seasons concentrated heavily on building a road to the site through the jungle and the removal of a number of monumental stone stelae and other sculpture, half of which were sent to Guatemala City and the other half to the University of Pennsylvania Museum. Included among these was Lintel 3, dated ca. 750 AD, still considered to be among the most beautiful specimens of Maya sculpture, and Stela 14 (on display in the Museum's Mesoamerican Gallery), credited with giving Tatiana Proskouriakoff the inspiration for her decipherment of Maya hieroglyphics. The second season produced a new map of the site, but also saw part of the camp catch on fire, resulting in the loss of part of the photographic record.

Under Satterthwaite's direction, the focus of the excavations shifted from the more glamorous task of bringing carved monuments to the exhibition galleries of the Museum to purely archaeological questions, such as uncovering architectural remains, establishing building sequences, and stratigraphy. Satterthwaite concentrated heavily on the architecture of the city, excavating a total of eleven temples and seventeen palaces, as well as two ball courts and a number of sweathouses. As a result the collecting of artifacts became less important in the later seasons. In 1934 and 1935 Satterthwaite visited the nearby site of Yaxchilán and in 1936 the site of Palenque, to obtain architectural data and measurements for comparative purposes. Some of the records for these trips can be found among the Piedras Negras record group, but most of them have been transferred to a separate group, Linton Satterthwaite— Various Sites (see separate listing).

The expedition staff changed almost every season, with the exception of Satterthwaite and his wife, who participated every year, and were the only Museum personnel in 1934. T. Egan Wyer was the engineer for the first season, responsible for constructing the road. Fred P. Parris, architect, took over for Wyer for the second and third seasons. He surveyed and mapped the site. Mary Butler was responsible for artifact analysis, specifically pottery, and stratigraphy. She worked in 1932 and 1933. Tatiana Proskouriakoff, an eminent figure in Maya archaeology, especially the study of Maya art, architecture, and epigraphy, began her archaeological career on the Piedras Negras expedition during the seasons of 1936 and 1937. She later worked for the Carnegie Institution in Washington, DC and Harvard University. Other members of the expedition included David W. Amram, Jr. (1932), Francis M. Cresson, Jr. (1935–1937), William S., Jr. and Marian A. Godfrey (1939), and representatives of the Guatemalan Government. Marian A. Godfrey (later Boyer) eventually became Secretary (1942–1949) and Acting Director (1945–1946) of the Museum.

Most of the monuments borrowed from Guatemala were returned to the country of origin in January, 1947, after an extension to the original loan. Only Stela 14 and one leg from Altar 4 remain on display in the Museum's Mesoamerican Gallery today.

A number of publications have resulted from the findings at Piedras Negras, but Satterthwaite never finished all the reports he intended to produce. Much material remains in this collection of use to the Maya scholar and student. See the attached Appendix I for a complete list of Museum publications covering this site.

Biography/History

Robert James Burkitt, born on January 18, 1869 in Athenry, County Galway, Ireland, was the son of Reverend Thomas Henry Burkitt and Emma Eliza Parsons. At age 14, due to economic conditions, he was sent to live with an aunt in Nova Scotia where he attended Dalhousie College. Burkitt took honors in mathematics there and enrolled at Harvard University to study mining. While he was known as a recluse among the Harvard students, Burkitt developed a friendship with George Byron Gordon based on their shared interests in engineering and their talents in drafting and art. Burkitt received his A.B. from Harvard in 1891.

Burkitt first traveled to Guatemala in 1894 as George Gordon's assistant on the Fourth Copan Expedition. In the five months of the expedition, Gordon instructed Burkitt in the basics of excavation. Gordon returned to Cambridge when the excavation was completed, but it is believed that Burkitt never returned to North America, becoming enamored of the culture and language of the Maya. In his early years in Guatemala, Burkitt visited the Kekchi-speaking Maya who lived in the Alta Verapaz. He wandered the countryside, visiting the Indian villages, learning the different languages and customs of the native people, and following native guides to sacred ruins. Burkitt never established a permanent residence in Guatemala, living with one group of friends or another. He rented an apartment in Guatemala City when business took him there, under his pseudonym, Mr. Brown.

Burkitt maintained a sporadic correspondence with his friend George Gordon who by 1910 was Director of the Free Museum of Science and Art (later renamed The University Museum). Burkitt had attained some recognition for articles on linguistics, "Notes on the Kekchi Language" having been published in American Anthropologist. Burkitt and Gordon entered into an agreement whereby Burkitt would devote a portion of each year to exploring and acquiring artifacts for the Museum for a monthly fee plus expenses. This agreement stood for many years despite attempts to get Burkitt to sign contracts and make changes to his highly eccentric style of work. Burkitt could be critical and prickly in his correspondence especially opinionated about the work of others on the Indian language and changes to his material when published.

Burkitt's letters and his Catalogue never fail to contain information on the folklore, ritual, crafts, and language of the Maya. The collection contains regular correspondence with George Gordon until Gordon's death in 1927. Burkitt then kept the Museum apprised of his exploits through letters to Miss McHugh, the Treasurer. When Horace H.F. Jayne took over as Director, Burkitt communicated with him. In addition to letters and records relating to shipments to the Museum, Burkitt kept extensive catalogue entries for each item accompanied by references to geography and the excavation process connected to their discovery. Photographs depict the sites, stages of excavation, and objects discovered. Many of the pictures are mounted by Burkitt. His own discoveries are accompanied by photographs of items purchased from collectors.

Burkitt discovered The Ratinlixul Vase, recovered in 1923. His works, published in the Museum Journal, included "A Journey in Northern Guatemala" in 1924 and "Excavations at Chocola and Explorations in the Highlands of Western Guatemala" in 1930.

Burkitt's interest in linguistics was ever present. He worked for many years on a grammar and dictionary of the Kekchi language; "investigating grammar in my own way". This work was not completed when he suffered a fatal stroke in 1945. Burkitt's papers were thought to be lost until Elin Danien, then Coordinator of Museum Events, visited Guatemala in 1985. Danien contacted relatives of Kensett Champney, a friend with whom Burkitt lived, and discovered that some early notebooks were indeed still in the family's possession.

Burkitt is buried in the British Cemetery in Guatemala City.

Biography/History

Tepe Gawra in northern Iraq was the site of excavations uncovering twenty-six levels of occupation spanning the years from about 5000 B.C. to 1500 B.C. This expedition was funded by the University Museum, A.S.O.R.- Baghdad, and Dropsie College in Philadelphia. Excavations took place from fall to spring, directed by E. A. Speiser (University of Pennsylvania, University Museum and A.S.O.R.- Baghdad) for the 1930-1931, 1931-1932, and 1936-1937 seasons, and by C. Bache (University Museum) for the 1932-1933, 1934-1936, and the 1937-1938 seasons. During 1933-1934, work started late because of complications due to a change in the Antiquities laws and was not represented by a separate field report.

Scope and Contents

The Golomshtok Papers consist primarily of correspondence between Horace H. F. Jayne (Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum) and Golomshtok, and between the University of Pennsylvania Museum (in the person of Golomshtok and/or Jayne) and Russian authorities and institutions concerning the expeditions (1931, 1933, "1934") and other related matters (1930-1944). Also included are numerous inventories of artifacts and publications (often related to exchanges), object cards, an object catalogue, photographs, and an annotated bibliography compiled in the 1950's. For related correspondence, see Golomshtok's letters to Fewkes in the Fewkes Papers. Photographs collected from the Golomshtok Expeditions are stored in the Archives, and negatives are listed here and in the image catalogue.

Object Catalogue

The catalogue in the Registrar's Office contains the following inventory numbers for the items acquired by and through the Golomshtok Expeditions:

33-41, 33-44, 33-45, 33-47, 33-48, 33-49, 33-50, 33-51, 33-52, 33-55, 33-56. 33-57, 34-40, 34-41

Scope and Contents

Alan Rowe, born in Hornchurch, Essex, England in 1891 spent his life not only in his homeland but in Australia, Egypt, Palestine and Libya in pursuit of the study of Egyptology. He excavated with C.S. Fisher at Beth Shan and George Reisner at Giza before serving as Field Director of the University of Pennsylvania Museum Expedition to Meydum, Egypt.

In addition to his expeditions, Rowe lectured in history at the University of Adelaide, Australia and in Near Eastern Archaeology at the University of Manchester.

The Meydum, Egypt Expedition records consist of twelve archival boxes plus oversize materials. The majority consist of correspondence, reports, and preparation for publication. The collection is divided into twelve series. In addition to the correspondence, field reports, notebooks and publication materials are financial reoords, various lists and photographs. The group is completed by other graphic materials such as plans, maps and squeezes.

The records had been reviewed and box lists made prior to processing. The order of the records was largely maintained with re-organization of some of the correspondence and publication records needed for clarity. For example, many of the communications with Museum Director Horace Jayne were interspersed with materials from other series.

Rowe detailed his work in lengthy letters to Horace Jayne and former director Battiscombe Gunn, in field notebooks and diaries. He wrote often to his researchers to obtain information about translations, grafitti and coins. The materials are rich in information. He maintained typed copies of much of the research findings for publication purposes. Additional communications with Battiscombe Gunn are found in the publications series.

Rowe displayed his photographs in three hardback albums with a corresponding register and indexes by year. The large groups of plans and maps reflect Rowe's prganization by publication volume, topography, location, structure and/or type of find.

Scope and Contents

The textual records from the excavations of Piedras Negras consist of 11 linear feet of correspondence, financial records, field notes and diaries, catalogs, and reports and publication materials. The arrangement of the records reflects the original order insofar as could be detected, and portions that had been separated over time were re-integrated into this scheme. The material has been divided into the following eight series: Correspondence, Financial Records, Field Notes, Object Catalogs, Miscellaneous Notes – By Structure, Miscellaneous Notes – Alphabetical, Reports and Publications, and Photograph Catalogs and Photographs.

The correspondence consists mainly of letters from J. Alden Mason and Linton Satterthwaite, as field directors, reporting to Museum Director Horace H. F. Jayne on the progress of excavations, and letters to representatives of the Guatemalan and Mexican Governments regarding the contract, export permits, and other logistics. A copy of the contract is included in this series. The records from Mason's preliminary trip to Guatemala in 1930 were originally filed with the records of Robert Burkitt's excavations (see separate finding aid), since Mason met with Burkitt on the trip. However, they are more relevant to the Piedras Negras expedition and therefore have been moved here. The photocopies of letters of David Amram to his family were donated in 1985 by Amram himself, and placed in this series. Many pages of correspondence from the 1932 season were partly burned. These had to be photocopied onto acid-free paper for preservation purposes, and the originals were discarded.

The arrangement of the field notes was problematic, since Satterthwaite did not keep his notes in diaries by year, but had divided them into notebooks by architectural structures and other subjects. Satterthwaite's numbering system for the notebooks has been retained. J. Alden Mason's notes are arranged chronologically at the beginning of the series. Other notes by Satterthwaite, Mary Butler, and Mrs. Satterthwaite have been arranged by staff member and thereunder chronologically, and placed after the numbered notebooks. Surveyors' notebooks, containing mapping information and measurements, complete the series. Margaret Satterthwaite's diary (1931) does not specifically discuss excavation operations, and is restricted due to its personal nature. Some of Mary Butler's notebooks have been added to this series from a 1989 donation from her husband, Clifford Lewis III.

Notebooks discussing Satterhwaite's visits to other sites in the Maya area, originally filed in this record group, have been moved to a separate group, Linton Satterthwaite— Various Sites. The notes contain material that has little bearing on the Piedras Negras expedition, even though some trips to these sites were undertaken during Satterthwaite's seasons at Piedras Negras, specifically to Yaxchilán and Palenque.

The two series of Miscellaneous Notes (By Structure and Alphabetical) were originally filed with Linton Satterthwaite's records as Curator of the American Section. Their order was retained but they were moved to the Piedras Negras records. These series consist of notes taken in the field or written up as part of the post-season analyses, and cover a variety of topics and subjects. Included is also material used in preparation of publications. Complete reports and drafts of papers, however, are located in the series Reports and Publications.

Photograph Catalogs and Photographs includes a complete set of field photographs pasted in albums. Additional sets of prints can be found in Special Collections— Photographic Archives— Standard Size Prints. The remaining series are described below. Oversize maps, plans, and drawings have yet to be described.

Scope and Contents

The Robert Burkitt Excavation Records consist of 1.4 linear feet of correspondence, catalogues and reports, photographs, and notes and studies on the collection. The records have been compiled from the material sent to the Museum by Robert Burkitt from his exploration and excavations in Guatemala during the years 1913 through 1939 and the work on the collection by J. Alden Mason. Notes on the collection by William R. Coe comment on Burkitt and the work of Mary Butler, an expert on the pottery of the region. Studies of the collection by students of Anthropology at the University of Pennsylvania are also included.

The correspondence from Burkitt to the Museum is arranged chronologically. His catalogue and reports contain catalogue numbers that are not chronological but are referenced to his letters. The photographs, numbered from 101 to 326 then 804 to 807 were divided into folders using the numbers. Mason's notes are undated but those from William R.Coe date from 1953. The studies on the collection are from 1977 and 1978. Mason's notes were divided into three folders, a notebook, a chart and chart notes, and notes on Chama. Coe's material was also divided into folders of notes, photographs, and drawings.

The correspondence series reflects Burkitt's tendency to write infrequently, mostly to his friend George Gordon, and with a great attention to detail. Some letters are very long and contain information on his travels in the area. Burkitt included drawings and comments on the existing maps of the areas. Political commentary is sometimes included and Burkitt shows worries about the security of the mail to and from the museum. At times, the letters are lists of objects being sent to the museum, lists of expenses, and shipping information. Communications are written from Coban, Senahu, San Cristobal, Chiantla, Verapaz and the ruins near Chipal. Later letters come from Ciudad Guatemala and Belize.

The letters from the period 1924 to 1926 are sometimes accompanied by responses from George Gordon which have been photocopied from Gordon's collection of letters. (see Letters G.B. Gordon-Burkitt, Special Collections, Bound Volumes, Letterbooks, G.B. Gordon).

A separate folder was created for one correspondence from Robert Burkitt's father, J.H. Burkitt, to the Museum dated 1915. Reverend Burkitt sought information about the whereabouts of his son. The Catalogues and Reports of the Robert Burkitt excavation records contain descriptions of all of the items sent to the Museum from the Guatemala sites. All entries in this folder are hand-written in phonetic English. The notes are in good condition and accompanied by small, exquisite drawings of the items. Divided into three columns on each page, the first column contains the number assigned by the museum, the second, the number of the item assigned by Burkitt in numerical order, and the third a description of the item. The first portion of the catalogue consists mostly of pottery. Burkitt often writes several pages of information about an object or region.

Burkitt's later entries are type-written in the same phonetic style. For these entries, Burkitt makes use of hand-drawn maps of the area showing the arrangement of the mounds and graves in it. He includes rubbings of fragments, carvings, and pots found. Burkitt refers to the number of the photograph in the collection which corresponds to the item of the dig.

The original photographs of Robert Burkitt are contained in envelopes or mounted by Burkitt on heavy paper with notes and encased in mylar. Pictures of the objects are usually mounted. Burkitt meticulously referenced the photos to the text of the catalogue. In addition, the negative numbers are provided on the back of many photographs. The photographs depict the regions of Chocola, Kixpek, Ratinixul, Belize, Quatsoltenango, San Vicente, El Castillo, Alta Verapaz, Aintun, the Sayte River region, Coban, Xolchun, and Kuchumata, among others. In addition to objects found by Burkitt, there are also photographs of items from the Kanter Collection, part of another "private collection in Polo Gordo", and the collection of Henry Kummerfeldt.

Four folders contain photographs related to Burkitt's correspondence with George Gordon in July, October, and November 1913. One folder of these photographs is undated. Material published in the Museum Journal in 1918 and 1930 are contained in a separate folder, with negatives for only a few. The negatives, in envelopes, may reflect a need for conservation assessment.

Notes and Studies on the Collection are contained in eight folders. The material reflects comments and charts by J. Alden Mason and notes from William Coe. Coe's notes notes relate not only to Burkitt but also to Mary Butler, a research associate at the University of Pennsylvania who was an expert on the pottery of the Maya Indians of Guatemala. The mounted drawings of pottery included with this series are believed to be part of Mary Butler's work. Many of the drawings are numbered and are from Chipal and Chama. A separate "analysis" of a "small tubular object"(# 11258) by A.E.Parkinson is also contained with the series on notes and studies.

The series also contains hand-written course notes and papers written by students for the class, "W. Coe Anthropology Class: Studies of Burkitt and Butler". The papers deal with the sites at Tambor, Kixpek, Chama, Chicun, San Pedro Carcha, and an analysis of Mary Butler's excavations and work in Guatemala. Site diagrams are present for the San Pedro Carcha area.

Scope and Contents

Where possible, a chronological order was imposed on the Near East records. Photographs were retained with the documents when they directly referred to content. Otherwise, the photographic collections hold material relating to excavation, objects, and travel photographs (see standard size photograph inventory). Large maps and drawings are kept in the Oversize cases, and smaller oversize items in the Print Cabinet (see inventories).
