Scope and Contents
Concerns the exchange of material between Franz Weidenreich, Wells, and, to a much lesser extent, G. H. R. von Koenigswald. The photographs include Sinanthropus remains and Weidenreich's reconstructions of a female, a collection of peruvian skulls, anthropomorphic pottery at the Museo Archaeologico in Lima, and a view of a pre-Inca burial "on a hill across the river from the Oroya smelter."
