Biographical/Historical note
Biographical/Historical note
John Canfield Ewers (1909-1997) joined the Smithsonian's Department of Anthropology Associate Curator of Ethnology in 1946. He then worked at the Smithsonian in varous capacities, including Director of the National Museum of History and Technology (now called the National Museum of American History). He retired in 1979 as senior research anthropologist, at which time he was given the title of ethnologist emeritus. Ewers wrote several books on a wide variety of topics including artists' depictions of Native Americans, Plains Indian sculpture, and the horse in Blackfoot Indian culture.
Chip Clark was a National Museum of Natural History staff photographer. Originally trained in biology, he came to the museum in 1973. In the ensuing decades Clark documented thousands of specimens and exhibits and accompanied scientists on research trips around the world.
