Abstract / Summary
Sixty-six pages comprise copies of Margaret Mead's typed or written field notes about the Mundugumor people of New Guinea from mid-October to mid-December 1932. There are numerous terms in indigenous text. The notes are on various topics, but kinship makes up a large part. These copies are accompanied by a hand-written note that reads, 'Mundugu Duplicates - Xeroxed for Levy Straus [sic; apparent reference to Claude Levi-Strauss] but never sent because he said he didn't need them. (Sept. 11, 1973)' That note includes the initials 'SS' at the top and the notation 'File in Dup. Bin please' at the bottom
