The Anthony F. C. Wallace Papers are a vast collection of materials relating to Wallace's work at the intersection of anthropology, psychology, and history. Though further research might yield more results, approximately nine items directly pertaining to the related Siouan peoples known as the Oto (or Otoe) and Missouri (or Missouria) have been identified. Most of these materials are located in Series IX. Indian Claims, and relate to Wallace's work as a researcher and expert witness on behalf of Native American land claims. They include extracts from primary and secondary sources, court dockets, and tribal histories for both the Oto and Missouri. See also the George Pletsch file in Series I. Correspondence. Note that there is overlap with the Iowa and Meskwaki (Sac and Fox) entries. See the finding aid for a detailed discussion of Wallace's long and varied career, and for an itemized list of the collection's contents.
