Nipissing | Anishinaabe
Alternate forms: Nbisiing
Language(s): English
Date: September 1927
Extent: 27 photographs
Description: The Nipissing materials thus far identified in the Alfred Irving Hallowell consist of 26 photographs (D56-D81), found in Series VI, Subseries D, and 1 photograph (F258) in Subseries F. These photographs show a large variety of Nipissing community members and locations. The collection may potentially contain additional information, among the manuscript materials, pertaining to Hallowell's visit, though the existence of such information has not yet been accurately determined due to the generality of Hallowell's identification of his research materials.
