Papers of the Peabody Museum

The first volume of the Peabody Museum Papers—Standard or Head-Dress? An Historical Essay on a Relic of Ancient Mexico by Zelia Nuttall—appeared in 1888. Since then the series has published original research by such notable anthropologists as Alice C. Fletcher, Charles Willoughby, Herbert J. Spinden, Samuel J. Guernsey, Alfred V. Kidder, Ruth Sawtell, Benjamin L. Whorf, George W. Harley, Carleton Coon, Philip Phillips, Doris Z. Stone, John Rowe, Watson Smith, Clyde Kluckhohn, Gordon R. Willey, William White Howells, and many more. The most recent Papers volume, no. 85 in the series, is Pecos Pueblo Revisited: The Biological and Social Context, edited by Michèle E. Morgan (2010).
