Biographical Note

Clara Lee Frapps Tanner (1905-1997) was born in Biscoe, North Carolina, but moved to Tucson when she was two years old. She graduated from Tucson High School in 1923 and entered the University of Arizona where she earned a double bachelor’s degree in archaeology and English. After studying with Byron Cummings, Tanner became one of the first graduates in the anthropology program, receiving her master’s degree in 1928. She did additional post-graduate work with Alfonso Caso at the National University of Mexico in 1949 and was a visiting professor at Denver University in 1949 and at Colorado College in 1980.

Tanner began teaching in the anthropology department at the University of Arizona in 1928. She continued guiding students for the next fifty years, retiring in 1978. During these years, Tanner became an authority on the arts and crafts of Southwestern American Indians. Her interests encompassed almost every art form imaginable, but her best-known books, published in the 1950s to 1970s, focused on painting, pottery, jewelry, and baskets. Her extensive research resulted in influential publications, exhibitions, and voluminous research files.

Clara Lee married John Frederic Tanner (191-2010) in 1938, and they had one child, Sandra Lee Elers. The Tanner home was in Tucson where John had a business selling fine American Indian arts and crafts at the Yucca House and the Desert House Crafts (later known as Kaibab Shops). He and his wife were important agents in increasing the visibility of Indian artists and building a knowledgeable audience for appreciating tribal arts and crafts.

Scope and Content

The Clara Lee Tanner Papers, 1924-1997, include the professional, research, and teaching files of this authority on Southwest Indian arts and crafts. Tanner’s fifty year career as a professor at the University of Arizona is well documented as are her numerous books, lectures, and journal articles and her participation as a judge in the Gallup Ceremonial events. Her papers include correspondence, diaries, book manuscripts, and extensive files of unique primary resources collected during research on living Indian artists and traditional arts and crafts techniques. Of special note are the research notes and final manuscript for Tanner’s unpublished book on prehistoric Southwest basketry. A small amount of information exists about her field work as an archaeologist in the 1920s and 1930s. There is very little about her husband John Tanner’s Indian crafts businesses, or her family life. Posthumously, a bibliography of her writings and a summary of her lifetime achievements were assembled and these are included in the final box of the collection. This collection consists of 107 boxes and is organized into seven series.

Clara Lee Tanner’s journal of notes on the Pascua Yaqui, handwritten in ink in 1930, is part of a small manuscript collection A-474.
