ON STUDYING THE HISTORY OF ANTHROPOLOGY by Dell H. Hymes ""
ON April 13-14 of this year a Conference on the History of Anthropology was held in the office of the Social Science Research Council. The attendants numbered 33 and included anthropologists, historians, historians of science, sociologists, and a few other interested persons. Papers prepared for the conference were discussed. In this brief paper I should like to tell you about the conference, not so much in terms of its content as in terms of its import. This lies mainly, I think, not in the intrinsic value of what occurred-like most short conferences on areas new to organized research, it was intense, varied, and confused-but in the fact that it did occur. The occurrence of a formal conference on the history of anthropology marks a definite shift that affects the interests and fortunes of all anthropologists.
We can be partly gratified by the attention-by being singled out for study by historians of science. It must prove that our claims to be something of a science are being given credence. Yet it means some discomfort too, for we have our own accounts of our origin, nature, and destiny. It may seem at first that the historians of science visit us simply out of sincere interest in these traditions of ours, to be edified by them, as we have been, and to record them for the rest of the world and posterity, lest they be lost. Eventually, however, we may discover that our attentive visitors do not always take our accounts at face value. They move from one campfire to another, and compare notes. We realize that they could hardly become one with us, if they had not undergone the same sort of initiation (field work), been exposed to our ways

April 1314. 1962. for which he prepared a paper. "Toward a History of Linguistic Anthropology." The present report is a condensation of one presented by the author at the annual meeting of the Kroeber Anthropological Society, held jointly with the Southwestern Anthropological Association in Berkeley, on April 19-21. The longer report will be published in Kroeber Anthropological Society Papers, No. 26 (1962). The Council's conference was an outgrowth of the November 1959 Conference on the History of Quantification in the Sciences sponsored by the former Joint Committee on the History of Science (of the National Research Council and Social Science Research Council), on which a report by Robert K. Merton appeared in Items, March 1960. The 1962 conference was organized by an ad hoc subcommittee consisting of A. Irving Hallowell, University of Pennsylvania (chairman); Robert K. Merton, Columbia University; Harry L. Shapiro. American Museum of Natural History; Richard H. Shryock, American Philosophical Society; Sol Tax, University of Chicago; and C. F. Voegelin. Indiana University, with the staff assistance first of Joseph B. Casagrande and later of Rowland L. Mitchell, Jr. The participants included Harry
Alpert, University of Oregon; Bernard Barber, Barnard College; Joseph B. Casagrande. University of Illinois; Frederica de Laguna, Bryn Mawr College; Fred Eggan, University of Chicago; Raymond Firth, London School of Economics and Political Science; John F.

early enough in their careers. But, disconcertingly, they seem untroubled, and confident in ways of their own. They even presume to decide for themselves what portion of our accounts they will believel The situation is mildly embarrassing, especially if we wish to protest, since we have been in the business of doing the very same thing to other groups for years. In essence, a good deal of the history of anthropology is going to be written by men who are not by origin, perhaps not even by aspiration or empathy, anthropologists. What should be our view, then, of the question, "Who shall write the history of anthropology"? Shall we turn the subject wholly over to historians of science and scholarship? Or shall anthropologists continue to take part? The best solution, I believe, is one already validated in the history of science, and one for which there is ample precedent among ourselves: turn some of the informants into professional collaborators. As put by Richard Shryock, himself an eminent figure in the history of science, the important thing is not the particular origin of the scholar, but that he know enough both of the science and of history. Historians can learn anthropology; anthropologists can learn history. I believe that this solution is not only best, but necessary. I would add only the qualification that it should not be one-sided, that there be not only historians that learn anthropology, but also anthropologists, some of them, that learn history. In short, we must prepare to train some anthropologists as specialists in the history of anthropology. (This has already occurred in one or two cases at the University of Pennsylvania.) The desirability of this course may be shown by reference to the content of the conference. I should like to single out three characteristics that were both apparent and important: (1) how much the professionalization of the history of anthropology is already under way; (2) how important this history is in current theory and controversy; (3) that the historian of anthropology, nee historian, and the historian of anthropology, nee anthropologist, converge but do not merge entirely.
wrestling with verbal tools; horizontal sectioning, relating an author to contemporary, including nonanthro路 pological, figures and ideas, that is, seeing more than the "vertical" dimension of the profession's history that can be viewed as a lineal succession through time; in general, a clear sense of historical context and of historical problems, judgments that are not anachronistic or a priori, but informed by historical relativism that answers to an anthropologist's wariness of ethnocentrism, studies that are more than chronicle. As one of the papers that had these marks of a truly professional history of anthropology, I may cite that on Tylor and the concept of culture by Stocking.1 When someone writes a paper showing that Matthew Arnold held a position of major importance in the cultural life of the times vis-a.-vis that held by Tylor, between which there was an interaction; that Arnold in fact held a conception of culture closer in some respects than Tylor's to our own; and that the changes in the use of the terms "culture" and "civilization" in parallel passages of Boas' earlier and later writings show that when Kroeber and Kluckhohn attributed the modern concept of culture to Tylor's definition, and to Boas an apparent delay of a generation in its subsequent development, they had matters almost exactly turned about, then we are in the presence of a level of scholarship that makes retrospective speculation about the history of anthropology passe. If anthropologists want to talk about it themselves, they will have to meet similar standards. IMPORTANCE OF HISTORY FOR CURRENT THEORY Each time a major intellectual issue arose-the relationship of science and humanities in anthropology, the comparative method, the place of Boas-a historical topic was converted into a substantive contemporary issue; this elicited arguments and sometimes emotions among the anthropologists present. A negative lesson is how little ready sense of the historical problem in this area most anthropologists have, or at least how difficult they find it to be historical about themselves. On the positive side, however, it shows that their history cannot be a matter of indifference to them, and that one reason for training historians of anthropology is to provide some objective control over the use of that history for legitimation, theory, and controversy. If some of the historians are anthropologists, their value in these respects is likely to be increased for they should be sensitive to the relevance of the history to current issues.
PROFESSIONALIZATION It is fair to say that only a portion of the participants in the conference are, or intend to be, truly professional historians of anthropology; but the presence of that portion was unmistakable. Some of their distinctive traits, which enable one to recognize their presence, are these: use of out-of-the-way and unfamiliar sources, including unpublished ones, such as letters; attention to textual detail, to the interaction between ideas and their verbal embodiment, alertness to find other than present meanings in past usage, more than mere "semantics" in

Some controversies will dissolve, or at least change their character, when studied historically in an adequate way; and the essential controversies will show in a __ clearer light. It becomes a little absurd to charge Boas with not having analyzed adequately the social organization of the Kwakiutl if, as Eggan pointed out at the conference, the proper concepts to apply to the Kwakiutl were not developed in the field until a few years ago. More historically appropriate issues about Boas can be investigated. Of course historians of science themselves may become personally involved in anthropological controversies. It is not a question of resolving perennial issues by historical study, but of dealing with them on a more worth-while level. CONVERGENCE OF ANTHROPOLOGY AND HISTORY The scholar with a historian's starting point and the scholar with an anthropologist's starting point have a somewhat different ground sense, a somewhat different predisposition, and different degree of comfortableness with particular kinds of material. This appeared in the kinds of comments and points of fact made in the discussions at the conference. In my own paper I argued at some length for the contribution that the practicing A anthropologist can make to the history of his field, in. . , cluding some historical topics in which he alone is likely to be interested. Obviously, as Firth stated at the conference and my preceding remarks imply, an equally essential contribution is to be made by the professional historian. But this returns us to the main point: that we
need the contributions of both. I should like to close by relating that point to one further consideration. Anthropology today is flushed with success in the United States: course enrollments increase; jobs multiply; sources of funds expand. To some extent this material success may be misleading as an index of the future. Besides indices of quantity, some of quality should be examined. Consider how much has changed in the terms of our competition, as it were, in the ecological niche of other related fields. The major ideological battle that American anthropology has fought in the past generation has been largely won; almost everyone is a cultural relativist now (in the sense in which the term is opposed to parochialism, and ethnocentrism). And our private preserve, the parts of the world no one else seemed to want to study, is no longer ours. Scholars in almost every field today are engaged in research in Africa, India, Pakistan, the Philippines, and elsewhere. In short, two traits that have been of central importance and have formed much of our present image-cultural relativism, and field work in faraway places-no longer give us an evolutionary advantage. To a large extent, then, anthropologists can maintain their place not by what they do, but only by the way they do it. Having lost much of what advantage we had in the way of unique outlook and subject of study, we have to look much more to the quality of our work. That statement has many implications. One is the deepening of standards of historical scholarship among anthropologists, both for work on special topics and on the history of anthropology. Specialization of some of us in the history of science as it concerns anthropology is one route.
ON STUDYING THE HISTORY OF ANTHROPOLOGY: REFLECTIONS OF A HISTORIAN by Rowland L. Mitchell} Jr. IN THE past half century history as a discipline has moved away from a narrow focus on war and politics to encompass the study of the social and intellectual life of man from the beginning of recorded history to the present. One of the most productive recent developments in historical scholarship has been the expansion of interest in the history of science, an expansion that has produced significant contributions to our knowledge of the growth of man's understanding of his physical surroundings. After a Conference on the History of Quantification in the Sciences in November 1959, some of the participants discussed informally the possibility that
similar attention directed to the history of particular social sciences might be fruitful. They suggested that the Council endeavor to promote the study of this history and that as a useful first step it sponsor a conference on the history of anthropology. The small group invited to plan this conference early agreed that its participants should include sociologists and historians of science, as well as anthropologists, since it seemed certain that the history of anthropology would be greatly enriched if it could be placed in a broad historical and social context. Initially the group considered requesting only a few papers on specific topics, but
ultimately, in the hope of achieving a representative view of current scholarship and interest in the field, it decided to invite each participant to contribute a paper on a topic of his own choice. Of nearly 40 scholars invited to the conference, 23 contributed papers. Some of these papers are chronological narratives based largely on secondary materials; others are concerned with methodological problems and the relation of anthropology to other disciplines; still others are personal reminiscences; a few are studies based on careful analysis of contemporary documentary evidence in the context of the social and intellectual thought of the period. They view anthropological history in a number of ways: as institutional history, as biography, as a branch of the history of science, as intellectual history, as the sociology of knowledge. Neither individually nor as a group do they cover the field systematically or comprehensively. Archaeology, for example, is unrepresented, as is physical anthropology, with the consequence that the relationship of anthropology to the biological sciences was barely suggested in the discussions at the conference. Further, despite the presence of scholars from Europe, the conference had a preoccupation with American developments that precluded more than passing attention to developments abroad. The content of the papers as well as the discussions demonstrated that systematic study of the history of anthropology, while rich and promising, is still in its infancy. Illustrative of this fact was the discussion of whether one date could be established to mark anthropology's emergence as a discipline. Some participants suggested precise years, such as 1858 or 1860; others, the early decades of the nineteenth century or the latter years of the eighteenth. Several pointed out that if anthropology were sufficiently broadly defined it would be discovered that Herodotus was the founder of the discipline. Resolution of these differences was achieved only by agreeing that anthropological history cannot be treated as a unified whole but rather must be studied as the history of closely related but separate parts. Thus cultural anthropology, whose antecedents can be traced to antiquity, is of necessity a fairly recent division of anthropology since its development depends on the modern concept of culture, whereas ethnology, a field with equally ancient antecedents, began as a formal discipline in Europe at least as early as the eighteenth century. These and the other branches of anthropology need meticulous research to make clear the nature of their separate developments and their relations with one another and with other disciplines both in the humanities and the sciences. In the process of research much will have to be unlearned before an accurate history of anthropology can
emerge. Like the cultures it studies, anthropology has a folklore, and although this folklore may have its uses it can impede clear historical understanding. Discussion of the contributions of Boas, Schoolcraft, and Tylor re-e vealed that existing folklore about them, and others of importance, is not an adequate substitute for systematic and detached evaluation of their intellectual activities and their contributions. When such appraisals are undertaken it seems probable that the great man theory of history, which the focus of the conference on a few figures suggested, may be modified to take into account parallel discoveries in other countries and the work of other scholars less widely acknowledged at present as outstanding leaders. Such studies will also help to clarify the differential contributions of the several leaders as fieldworkers, research scholars, teachers, and directors of research. Whether anthropological training by itself is sufficient for the scholar who wishes to do research on the history of his discipline was a question that properly concerned the conference. If the papers were representative of what may be expected of anthropologists not trained as historians, it is apparent that anthropologists are not necessarily historically minded and therefore may need special training in historical method. For example, although anthropologists recognize that the terms used to explain concepts are significant indices of the level of a understanding within a culture, anthropologists looking. at their own history must be trained to avoid finding ideas in the past that in fact were not yet in existence. Here training in intellectual history and the history of science might provide an understanding of the intellectual setting in which anthropologists in the past lived and worked. Thus, Boas' strictures against the comparative method cannot be appreciated unless the scholar knows that this was a method used by paleontologists to reconstruct the whole skeleton from a part. Understanding why anthropologists had thought they could borrow this method requires not only knowledge of the relations of nineteenth-century anthropology to the physical sciences but, in addition, knowledge of the philosophical assumptions of nineteenth-century social scientists. Whether historical training by itself is sufficient for the historian who wishes to undertake research on the history of anthropology is an equally important question, and the participants in the conference agreed that such historians should have opportunity to acquire formal training in both the methods and the theory of anthropology. All agreed, also, on the need for strengthening existing archives and building new collections. It seems pos-I sible that anthropologists in the past have not been sufficiently concerned with the collection and preservation
of their leading scholars' unpublished notes and papers and that more attention should be given to these matters in the future. Specifically, the conference recommended that the systematic attempts of archivists to collect documentary materials, such as field notes, field diaries, lecture notes, and correspondence, be given every encouragement. It was even suggested that anthropologists might record, for the use of future scholars, their experiences as students or colleagues of anthropological leaders no longer living. Even with the materials now in existence, however, much can be done. As suggested above, detailed studies of every field in anthropology are needed, and various participants in the conference identified other areas that merit attention. Among those that seemed most promising were the role of field studies in disciplinary training; the professionalization of the discipline; the roles of sources of financial support, museums, and journals in guiding the direction of research; and com-
parative studies of national developments. Whether these studies be undertaken by anthropologists or by historians is not important. What matters is that they be undertaken in the spirit of scientific inquiry which has characterized the best scholarship in both disciplines. As a last and personal comment, I cannot forbear mentioning that for a historian this conference was an illuminating reminder that many areas of the past need sharply focused attention, in some cases hitherto almost wholly lacking. If the role of the historian is to help man understand his past, one important way he can fulfill this role is to study the development of man's understanding of himself and his social environment-that is, to study the development of the disciplines that have come to be called the social sciences. The conference made clear that exciting historical research does not depend on finding the untouched papers of still another minor military man or politician in a dusty trunk in an attic.
COMMITTEE ON THE ECONOMY OF CHINA: FIRST REPORT OF THE DIRECTOR OF RESEARCH by Walter Galenson
SINCE the beginning of the communist regime in 1949, China has been undergoing rapid and enormous changes. A major industrial advance under a first fiveyear plan and under the "Great Leap Forward" was followed by agricultural difficulties which have markedly slowed the pace of industrial growth, if it has not been stopped altogether. Traditional patterns of agriculture have been disrupted by efforts at thoroughgoing collectivization, while ambitious construction projects have been undertaken in an attempt to make full use of . China's principal resource, its manpower. What has happened in China in the past decade and what will happen in the next are of critical importance to the rest of the world. For better or for worse this populous nation is being thrust into modernity at a pace unequalled in history. Changes are taking place so quickly that even journalists cannot keep abreast of them, and objective research has been even less able to assess this fluid situation. Yet it is essential that a full and clear view of what China is becoming be obtained. For these reasons a series of discussions by interested economists, initiated by the Joint Committee on Con; temporary China in a conference on September 9-10, 1960, led to the formulation of a five-year program of research on the Chinese economy. The Committee on
Problems and Policy appointed the Committee on the Economy of China in September 1961 with the expectation that financial support for this program would become available, and in December the Ford Foundation made a grant of $910,000 to the Council for the purpose. l The new committee held its first formal meeting on February 16~17, and met again on May 4-5. The decision that a coordinated research program was needed, rather than one of grants-in-aid, was based on a number of factors, which were reviewed by the committee at its first meeting. The urgency of extending knowledge of Chinese economic institutions and their performance, the dearth of scholarly work on communist China, and the belief that a more rapid commitment of personnel to the task at hand could be obtained through committee initiative in recruiting qualified economists were major factors supporting the decision. It was thought that the needed coverage of topics could best be achieved if invitations were extended for work on specified studies. Also, the difficulty of research on China has been compounded by the almost complete ab1 Cf. Items, December 1961. p. 45. The members of the Committee on the Economy of China are Simon Kumets.

sence of aggregate statistical data since 1959, as well as the rather poor quality of those for years before 1959, so that a pooling of information among scholars was regarded as much more likely than individualized and isolated efforts to lead to significant research results. As its first step the committee developed a comprehensive list of studies that it would like to initiate during the next five years. Some of the proposed studies are broad in scope, such as the construction of indices of agricultural and industrial output; others are of a more sectorial character, such as studies of the textile, iron and steel, coal, and machinery industries. Still others would be concerned with institutional aspects of the Chinese economy-the communes, the banking and credit system, the planning mechanism, and the structure of industrial management. While the committee's immediate efforts are directed toward advancing quantitative studies, it is seeking also to encourage some nonquantitative studies insofar as competent investigators can be found to deal with such subjects as Chinese industrial management, the social organization of the communes, and the politics of economic planning. The topics that have been chosen are being assigned as rapidly as possible to qualified research workers. Individuals have been invited to begin work on studies on which reports of either article or monograph length might be envisaged, depending on the availability of materials and of research time. Many of those invited are located at small colleges or universities with inadequate research facilities, and in these cases sufficient financial assistance has been provided to permit leaves from regular positions. The committee considers it desirable that the participants in its studies work near others engaged in similar research and has encouraged the formation of research groups where library facilities are especially good. For example, several economists working under committee sponsorship were located at the University of Michigan during the summer of 1962, and a smaller group will be working at the University of California, Berkeley, during the coming academic year. Although
the studies will proceed independently, it is hoped that the opportunity to confer with others who are engaged in closely related projects will contribute to the quality of the results. _ The committee is continuing to search for economists and others interested and competent to work on topics with which it is concerned, in the hope that further studies can be initiated during 1963. Participation in the committee's program is not restricted to persons residing in the United States. Collaboration with economists in Canada, Great Britain, and Japan, and possibly other countries, is expected to be arranged. The committee is taking into account studies being made without its assistance and is making its plans accordingly, to avoid duplication of effort. In May Nai-Ruenn Chen, formerly of the University of Illinois, was retained as full-time assistant to the director of research, with the two principal functions of providing bibliographical assistance to participants in the studies, which is of critical importance in view of the difficulties involved in obtaining Chinese publications, and of coordinating the collection of statistical data under the guidance of the director of research. The latter project is intended to provide materials for one or more issues of an annotated handbook of Chinese economic statistics, comprising a collection of carefully evaluated data, with comments on their reliability, their consistency from year to year, and any existing alternative. estimates. At its February meeting the committee named a general advisory group, consisting of Alexander Eckstein of the University of Michigan, Franklin Ho, formerly of Columbia University, Choh-Ming Li of the University of California, Berkeley, and Ta-Chung Liu of Cornell University. Members of this group are serving also as consultants for specific projects. In addition the committee has invited Gregory Grossman and George Kuznets of the University of California, Berkeley, and Norman Kaplan of the University of Rochester to serve as consultants for certain other projects.

The transfer of the Foreign Area Fellowship Program from the Ford Foundation to the joint committee was completed on May 31, 1962. At that time the staff of the Fellowship Program moved into its new offices at 444 Madison Avenue, New York 22. The joint committee held its first meeting there on June 12 and formally authorized the fellowship procedures which would be followed in 1962-63. In accordance with the agreement with the Ford Foundation, these will be, with minor exceptions, the procedures used by the Foundation in the past. The joint committee agreed further to administer an 31
interfaculty exchange between a number of universities in the United States and a number of institutions in Latin America. Initially six American institutions have been invited to participate in the exchange: University of California, Berkeley; University of California, Los Angeles; Columbia University; Harvard University; University of Minnesota; and University of Texas. The administration of the faculty interchange will be centered in an interuniversity management committee chaired by the director of the Foreign Area Fellowship Program. The members of this committee are David E. Apter, Associate Director of the Institute of International Studies, University of California, Berkeley; Henry J. Bruman, Professor of Geography, Acting Director of the Center of Latin American Studies, University of California, Los Angeles; Charles Wagley, Director of the Institute of Latin American Studies, Columbia University; William S. Barnes, Director of Latin American Studies, Harvard University; Philip M. Raup, Professor of Agricultural Economics, University of Minnesota; and Joe W. Neal, Director, International Office, University of Texas. The Latin American institutions remain to be selected. The primary purpose of this program is to strengthen Latin American studies in the United States by enabling American scholars to study and do research in Latin America, and by bringing to the American centers Latin American scholars who will strengthen the American offerings and who may profit by association with their American confreres. A grant of $1,000,000 from the Ford Foundation has been placed at the disposal of the joint committee for this purpose. A meeting of the management committee together with a number of university administrators and representatives of the Ford Foundation has been called for September 24. At that time an attempt will be made to develop criteria for selecting participants in the program and to work out rules of procedure.
