Edmund Snow Carpenter (1922-2011) was an archaeologist and visual anthropologist who worked extensively with the indigenous peoples of the Canadian Arctic as well as Papua New Guinea. With his colleague and close collaborator Marshall McLuhan (1911-1980), he laid the groundwork for modern media theory. Carpenter is also known for his work as an ethnographic filmmaker and as a collector of Paleo-Eskimo art. The Papers of Edmund Carpenter, circa 1938-2011, document the research interests and projects undertaken by Carpenter in the fields of cultural anthropology, ethnographic filmmaking, media theory, archaeology, and indigenous art.

Photographs taken by members of the Basel Mission and by professional photographers. The majority of photographs were taken in the Basel Mission Faktorei (B.M.F.) in Accra and in other Basel Mission stores in Dodowa, Akure, Nsawam and Kumasi. Photographs taken by the members of the Basel Mission are of missionary life, flora and fauna, daily activities and named missionaries and their spouses. The professional images were of better quality and larger in size than the personal photographs. Among them are several images of a railroad station in Accra and a fleet of trucks belonging to the Basel Mission. Most significant among these photographs are 30 images of Asante people and of carved Asante stools. Two images were taken by F.R.C. Lutterodt, a well-known Ghanaian photographer, who had maintained studios in German Cameroon and in Ghana.
