Biography

Robert H. Lowie, a noted anthropologist, professor of anthropology, and specialist on the Crow Indians, was born in Vienna on June 12, 1883. Lowie, his mother, and his sister joined his father in New York City in 1893. He attended New York public schools, and earned his bachelor's degree from the College of the City of New York in 1901. Lowie taught in the New York public schools from 1901 to 1904. He studied under Franz Boas, and received his doctorate from Columbia University in 1908. His dissertation was a study of American Indian folklore, entitled The Test Theme in North American Literature.
Lowie began his career as assistant curator, and later associate curator, at the American Museum of Natural History. Under the direction of Clark Wissler, he did field work among the Chipewyan, Crow, Hidatsa, Hopi, Kiowa, and Washo, among other tribes. Alfred L. Kroeber offered Lowie a position as a visiting associate professor in the Anthropology Department at the University of California, Berkeley, and Lowie returned on a permanent basis in 1921. He attained the rank of full professor in 1925, often alternated with Kroeber as chairman of the department, and taught at Berkeley until his retirement in 1950.
Lowie published several hundred articles and reviews, in German and in English, and many books, including Culture and Ethnology (1917); Primitive Society (1920); Primitive Religion (1924); The Origin of the State (1927); Are We Civilized? (1929); Introduction to Cultural Anthropology (1934 and 1940); The Crow Indians (1935); History of Ethnological Theory (1937); Social Organization (1948); Toward Understanding Germany (1954); Indians of the Plains; and Crow Texts (1960).
He was active in many organizations. He was a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, elected to membership in the National Academy of Sciences, secretary and later honorary life member of the New York Academy of Sciences, president of the American Folklore Society and of the American Ethnological Society, editor of the American Anthropologist and of Current Anthropological Literature, and delegate to the Third International Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological Sciences, held in Brussels in 1948.
Lowie was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree by the University of Chicago in 1941. He received the Viking Medal in Ethnography in 1948, and the Thomas Henry Huxley Medal from the Royal Anthropological Institute of Great Britain and Ireland in the same year. He was appointed as Faculty Research Lecturer at U.C. Berkeley in 1949.
After his retirement in 1950, he lectured and did field work in Europe, continued to teach a course in the history and theory of anthropology at U.C. Berkeley, and was a visiting professor at the University of Washington, Columbia, and Harvard Universities.
Robert H. Lowie died at his home in Berkeley on September 21, 1957.

Scope and Content

The Robert H. Lowie Papers are multifaceted, shedding light on the career of a distinguished American ethnologist and long-time professor of anthropology at the University of California, Berkeley. At the same time, these papers illuminate the evolution of anthropology as a distinct academic discipline, and its development in the United States in the first half of the 20th Century.
The most important and detailed series are the first (Correspondence), third (Writings), and fourth (Field, Lecture, and Research Notes). Lowie corresponded throughout his long career with such anthropological luminaries as Franz Boas, Clyde Kluckhohn, Claude Lévi-Strauss, Elsie Clews Parsons, Paul Radin, Edward Sapir, Leslie Spier, and Clark Wissler. (A partial index of correspondents appears as an appendix to this guide.) Also included is a substantial body of correspondence to and from psychologist Luella Cole, who in 1933 became Robert Lowie's wife.
The Writings series contains drafts of a number of Lowie's articles, monographs, reviews, and speeches, as well as reviews written about his books. (In many cases, the manuscripts themselves are not dated, and so The Complete Bibliography of Robert H. Lowie, published by the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology, University of California, Berkeley, as well as typescript bibliographies that form part of the collection, have been consulted, and the date of publication has been written on the folder.) The various drafts of Crow Texts demonstrate Lowie's meticulous work habits, from the initial note-taking done by Lowie in the field, to the final edited typescript, containing both Crow and English versions. There are works ranging from writings in English and German, dating from his high school days, to posthumous publications, edited by Luella Cole Lowie. Included are a few apparently unpublished works.
Robert Lowie's best-known field work was done with the Crow Indians in Montana and Saskatchewan, and he spoke Crow fluently. Under the auspices of the American Museum of Natural History, he visited and studied a number of other tribal groups early in this century. The fourth series contains copious field notes made among the Chipewyan, Hidatsa, Hopi, Kiowa, and Washo peoples, among others. His detailed lecture and research notes demonstrate how much he relied on his first-hand knowledge to enliven his undergraduate lectures and graduate seminars, and what a wide range of courses he taught at U.C. Berkeley. Some of these included Ethnography of the World, Contemporary Civilization, Primitive Society, Primitive Religion, and courses on North American Indians. He also researched the history and culture of the German people, and attempted to explain these to American readers.
The remaining two series are of use mainly to Lowie's biographers. Series Two, Biographical Information, contains family history documents, a volume of essays prepared in his honor by his students, diaries, engagement books, dream journals, several of his own student notebooks, academic honors, bibliographies, and obituaries. Series Five, a small number of files on organizations and academic institutions, rounds out the collection.

Series 4: Field, Lecture, and Research Notes, 1904-1957

Scope and Content Note

Series 4 is divided into two sub-series, field notes (1907-1944), and lecture and research notes (1904-1957).
The field notes give evidence of Lowie's skilled technique in gathering ethnographic and linguistic data among the Chipewyan, Crow, Hidatsa, Hopi, Kiowa, and Washo, and other tribal groups. His notes on Crow grammar are particularly detailed. Lowie's lecture and research notes demonstrate the breadth of his teaching and scholarly endeavors. There are notes on social organization, cultural history (particularly of Germany), religion, folklore, mythology, linguistics, music, ethnographical details, ethnological theory, and the history of anthropology. There are two boxes of examination questions used in the Anthropology Department at U.C. Berkeley during Lowie's tenure there.
The folders are arranged alphabetically.
