Scope and Contents
Scope and Contents
Texts and anthropometric measurements collected by Truman Michelson during his research among the Arapaho at Fort Washakie, Wyoming. The texts consists of two stories handwritten by Michelson. The first story is in Arapaho with an interlineal English translation. The second story is in English and titled "N. runs a race with elk." The anthropometric measurements are primarily of Arapaho people, but includes measurements of people of other Native and European backgrounds. Included are the measurements of Harry Lincoln, who frequently assisted Truman Michelson with his Meskwaki research. It is unclear if all the measurements were collected in Wyoming as Lincoln resided in Iowa.
