BOX 13-27 Part I: Subject File, 1905-1980
The Subject File series largely concerns Métraux's organizational affiliations. It also documents the lives and professional careers of colleagues with whom she collaborated, most notably Margaret Mead. The series includes correspondence, memoranda, minutes, and reports from the American Museum of Natural History, the Institute for Intercultural Studies, and various professional committees and associations. A conference and meetings file, spanning the years 1951-1980, comprises the bulk of the series. It features Métraux's notes from conference sessions and committee meetings, which provide levels of detail often omitted from official proceedings and minutes. The series also contains subject files relating to Mead, anthropologist Ruth Benedict, and Métraux's husband, anthropologist Alfred Métraux, and background material on projective testing methods developed by Margaret Lowenfeld and used by Métraux in her research and fieldwork.
Material types include: correspondence, reports, minutes, notes, programs, photographs, addresses, bibliographies, writings, and printed matter.
Arranged alphabetically by subject or type of material and thereunder chronologically.
