The collection documents the Peabody Museum Expedition to Awatovi (northeastern Arizona) from 1935-39, and includes historical material, financial records, field notes, diaries, photographs, drawings, correspondence, and field and artifact cards.
The papers primarily consist of Bushnell and the Bushnell estate's correspondence with dealers, artists, museum professionals and other collectors; Bushnell's fieldnotes from his work with the Choctaw and archaeological expeditions; and, manuscript drafts and notes for his many publications.
This collection includes negatives Samuel K. Lothrop took during Peabody Museum-sponsored expeditions to South and Central America, Antigua, and Puerto Rico. Many of the black and white negatives depict ancient ruins, artifacts, architecture, landscapes, and indigenous people engaged in daily and festive activities.
