Daniel Sutherland Davidson (1900-1952) was born in Cohoes, New York. He graduated from the University of Pennsylvania in 1923 and continued his studies there, eventually receiving his Ph.D. in anthropology in 1928. Davidson went on to teach at the University of Pennsylvania, the University of Buffalo and finally the University of Washington. He did a considerable amount of field work among the Algonquin Indians in Quebec, as well as various tribes in Virginia, but his abiding interest was in aboriginal Australian culture.
