Oneida | Haudenosaunee
Alternate forms: Iroquois
Language(s): English
Date: circa 1951
Extent: 5 folders
Description: 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. 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. Though further research might yield more results, five items directly relating to the Oneida (in both New York and Wisconsin) have been identified. Of particular interest might be the correspondence of Wallace's students Alex and Catherine H. Ricciardelli, who did ethnographic fieldwork at St. Regis in the 1950s and wrote Wallace informative letters about their experiences at the reservation. Most other materials concern Wallace's work as a researcher and expert witness on behalf of Native American land claims. In Series IX. Indian Claims, there are three folders labeled as follows: "Oneida Indians--Oneida Nation of New York, et.al. vs. the United States of America, Docket 301" (1951), "Oneida Indians--Oneida of Wisconsin: Correspondence," and "Oneida Indians--Oneida of Wisconsin: Finances." In Series XII. Graphics, in a folder labeled "Berdonnet, Pauline Henriette Hyde de Neuville, vicomtesse de, 1814-1900--Indians of North America," there are several images of Haudenosaunee individuals, including one described as "Mary, Squaw of Oneida Tribe." See also the entries for Haudenosaunee, Seneca, and Tuscarora in the Wallace Papers.
