BOX 133-154 Part II: Subject File, 1894-1994
The Subject File covers a variety of topics including Métraux’s involvement in professional organizations. It further explores the lives and professional activities of colleagues and the childrearing of her son, Daniel Alfred Metraux. Prominent in the series are files relating to Margaret Mead. Included are correspondence files, schedules, estate records, descriptive lists of Mead’s personal papers, photographs, and writings by Mead, including poetry and a short story. Also present in the series are items belonging to others that found their way into Métraux’s possession. Included are personal items belonging to Gregory Bateson among them letters, a calendar, photographs, and drawings from the 1930s; a small cache of family papers; and a file relating to his analysis of the Nazi propaganda film Hitlerjunge Quex. Letters and photographs from the late 1920s belonging to Reo Fortune are also included in the series. The childrearing of Métraux’s son, Daniel, is well documented in the series from his birth in 1948 to his graduation from Beloit College in 1970. His correspondence reveals his close relationship with many of his parents’ colleagues.
Material types include: correspondence, memoranda, reports, minutes, programs, handbooks, directories, writings by others, bibliographies, biographical material, calendars, schedules, photographs, drawings, postcards, school records, notes, estate records, contracts, royalty statements, newspaper clippings, and other printed matter.
Arranged alphabetically by name of individual or organization, topic, or type of material. Digital files arranged as received.
