The ethnographic research collection consists of materials collected mostly during the early 20th century, totaling over 300 cubic feet, or roughly 750 objects, stored in polypropylene boxes and specialized object mounts, on a compact shelving unit, and on shelves in locked metal closed cabinets.
This collection is geographically widespread and includes a sizeable amount of materials from Brazil that were collected by former graduate student and internationally renowned ethnographer, William Crocker.
The ethnographic research database for the UWAC is currently being populated. As portions of the database are imported, our intent is to make unrestricted fields available online for public viewing/searching. Stay tuned for a link to this opportunity!
Access to this collection is provided through the UW Digital Collections, includes images of the ethnographic objects present in the UWAC.
