Example text

Lawrence Angel, Donald Ortner, Douglas Ubelaker, and Douglas Owsley, have all developed a more nuanced approach to the archaeological record. Despite his dedication to the development of the institution’s holdings, Hrdlicˇ ka’s relationship with archaeologists who contributed to the Smithsonian’s collections was not without tension. For example, when archaeologist Gerard Fowke sent his materials from Missouri mounds to the Smithsonian for analysis, Hrdlicˇ ka grumbled about the condition of the remains.

He actively collaborated with geologists in evaluating stratigraphy (Hrdlicˇ ka, 1912a, 1916, 1917a, 1937a) and based arguments critical of proposed early finds on soil formation processes. The occurrence of isolated fossil animal bones or fragments in contact with, or even above, the human skeleton would have no significance. In digging a grave the earth thrown out might well contain fossils even of considerable size, which, after the body was introduced, would be thrown in about or above it. The apparently undisturbed condition of the partial and irregular sandy layers which occur in the muck where the skeleton No.

Given his background as a “medical man” and as an anatomist, his emphasis on description and variation is understandable. As Schultz (1945:311) remarked, Hrdlicˇ ka “concerned himself properly and exclusively with the primary question: What are the variations of man? ” And indeed, his successors, such as T. Dale Stewart, Lucile St. Hoyme, J. Lawrence Angel, Donald Ortner, Douglas Ubelaker, and Douglas Owsley, have all developed a more nuanced approach to the archaeological record. Despite his dedication to the development of the institution’s holdings, Hrdlicˇ ka’s relationship with archaeologists who contributed to the Smithsonian’s collections was not without tension.
