The records of the Department of Anthropology span the years 1974 to 1984; most of the documents, however, date from 1974 to 1980, and are divided into four series: (1) Administrative Records, 1974-1984; (2) Faculty and Staff, 1974-1984; (3) Student Records, 1974-1981; and (4) NEH Fellows, 1975-1978. Series 3 is further divided into three subseries: Graduate Students, Undergraduate Students and Special Students. Consisting primarily of correspondence, appointment letters, faculty resumes, and student transcripts, this record group is very limited in scope, with series 1 and 4 filed in one folder each. Although incomplete, these records help document the history of the Department of Anthropology in the first thirteen years of its existence.
Administrative records in series 1 are restricted for twenty-five years from their date of creation. Education records in series 3, as defined by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, as well as employment records in series 2, are also restricted. For details, see Regulations Governing Access to Restricted Records, at the front of each binder.
