Biographical Note

Richard Benjamin Woodbury was born on May 16, 1917 in West Lafayette, Indiana. His father, Charles Goodrich Woodbury (1884-1971) was Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station at Purdue University. His mother, Marian Benjamin Woodbury (1882-1973) was an accomplished artist who had trained as an architect. Woodbury entered Oberlin College in 1934 and transferred to Harvard College after two years. After earning a B.S. degree, he began studies at Columbia University. There he continued his archaeological studies and met fellow graduate student Nathalie Ferris Sampson. Woodbury returned to Harvard and after a six-month deferment, began his war service in January 1942. He received training at Roswell Army Air Force flying school in New Mexico and served during World War II as a weather observer. Eventually he was posted to Brisbane, Australia, and to the Bismarck Archipelago in New Guinea. He was discharged as a Staff Sergeant in November 1945. In 1947, Woodbury joined Emil W. Haury at the Point of Pines field school sponsored by the University of Arizona. Here he once again encountered Nathalie Sampson.

Nathalie Ferris Sampson was born on January 25, 1918 in the small town of Humboldt, Arizona where her father was an engineer and rancher. When Nathalie was eight, the family moved to Chappaqua, New York, where her mother’s family had deep roots. She attended Horace Greeley High School and then Barnard College. She worked on University of New Mexico field schools at Jemez and Chaco Canyon. Nathalie graduated from Barnard in 1939 and began graduate studies in Columbia. During this time, she taught at Hunter College, Brooklyn College, and Eastern New Mexico College in Portales. She worked with Emil W. Haury at the Point of Pines Field School, encountering Richard Woodbury again, and their professional friendship deepened into love. They were married on September 18, 1948.

Together the Woodburys went to Guatemala after Richard was hired by United Fruit Company to work on the Maya site of Zaculeu. Thereafter, their professional careers evolved in tandem with frequent relocations for employment at the University of Kentucky, Columbia University, Barnard College, the new Arid Lands Program at the University of Arizona, the Museum of Northern Arizona, and the Smithsonian Institution. During their long careers, the Woodburys authored numerous books and articles including 60 Sixty Years of Southwestern Archaeology: a history of the Pecos Conference (1993) and a monograph on Alfred V. Kidder for Columbia University Press (1973). They contributed in major ways to collaborations such as Remembering Awatovi: the story of an archaeological expedition in northern Arizona, 1935-1939 (2008) and Handbook of North American Indians (1957-1980). Both of them wrote dozens of obituaries and book reviews.

The University of Massachusetts, Amherst, called on Richard to lead development of a new Department of Anthropology in the 1970s and 1980s. Simultaneously, he taught classes, launched and completed new writing projects. Both Woodburys became deeply involved in the Amherst community. Even after Richard’s retirement in 1981, they remained active in professional organizations and in a large international community of archaeologists and anthropologists. Nathalie died in 2008 and Richard in 2009.

Scope and Content Note

Series 1 and 1A: Biographical

These materials document the childhood, education, marriage, employment, retirement, and a wide variety of interests, friendships, and activities in Richard’s and Nathalie’s personal and professional lives. Some photographs are found in these files, but the bulk of family and personal photographs are filed in Series 7: Photographic materials. Early family correspondence and memoirs are found here. Extensive genealogy files relating to the history of the Woodbury and Benjamin families are included, as well as information about their property in the Tomahawk Club and the Eveline Fruit & Land Company. Of special note are the journals, diaries, and commonplace books written by Richard Woodbury. Biographical materials related to Nathalie are few. Of special note are the materials related to her friendships with Gladys Amanda Reichard and Elsie Clews Parsons.

Series 2: Correspondence

This large group of materials is divided into five subseries to improve access. Subseries 1: RBW family correspondence. Subseries 2: NFSW correspondence with friends and family. Subseries 3: Correspondence between RBW and NFSW. Subseries 4: Early correspondence by RBW and NFSW. Subseries 5: General correspondence, 1950s to 2000s.

Several generations of the Woodbury family shared a concern for preserving family history through letters and other forms of communication. Following this tradition, Richard and Nathalie saved not only letters they inherited, but also cared for the letters to and from their colleagues, friends, family, and acquaintances. Over the years, they had various systems for arranging the letters, including filing duplicate copies in different files. For the convenience of researchers most groups of letters have been united and described below. The basic arrangement for letters is alphabetical by correspondent. Within each alphabetic section miscellaneous letters are arranged by year. Letters by important or prolific correspondents have been given their own folders. For example, under the letter “A” are folders arranged by decade as well as separate folders for Rick Ahlstrom and E. Wyllys Andrews (among others). Correspondence in the decade folders is not indexed, so the researcher should examine them to find individuals of interest not found in the alphabetic folders. Note that early family correspondence is found in Series 1 with other biographical materials. Some photographs are found in these files, along with other enclosures. Of special note are the letters Richard wrote to his friends and family while deployed in World War II and while engaged in archaeological excavations.

Series 3: Employment, archaeology and anthropology projects and research

These papers are arranged chronologically. Each group has been given the title of either the sponsoring organization or the official project designation. Records document the employment and research activities for both RBW and NSFW. It is often impossible to separate the work of Richard and Nathalie because after their marriage the activities of one usually meant the involvement of both. Types of materials include correspondence, photographs, business records, grant applications, ephemera, field notes, and research notes. Of special note are extensive research files documenting arid lands, irrigation systems, and changing patterns of land use in the American Southwest and elsewhere.

Series 4: Professional activities, organizations, and travel

Both Nathalie and Richard Woodbury were active in national and regional professional organizations, especially the American Anthropological Association and the Society for American Archaeology. They served in editorial roles and elected positions, were involved in planning, attended conferences, compiled the history of the groups, and wrote for publications. These files contain correspondence, newsletters, conference programs, travel documentation, publications, and miscellaneous ephemera. Of special note is documentation about Teocentli, the Cosmos Club, and various regional and student organizations in the 1960s-1980s.

Series 5: Publications, lectures, and writings

These files contain manuscripts, drafts, research, correspondence, and related materials documenting the extensive published and unpublished writings of Richard and Nathalie. They are divided into two subseries and arranged chronologically. Subseries 1: NFSW writings. Subseries 2: RBW writings.

Series 6: Research, subject, and miscellaneous files

Topics in these files span a wide range of interests including the history of archaeology, anthropology, and ethnology of the Southwest assembled to support teaching, writing, and research. Of special interest is extensive research related to arid lands, global water management, and the bibliography of archaeology. Materials include books, clippings, photocopies, and other items collected, typed, and handwritten by both RBW and NFSW. Some of their research is recorded on 3 x 5 inch cards and 5 x 8 inch cards.

Series 7: Photographic materials, personal and professional

Consists of photographic materials created or collected by RBW and NSFW for personal and professional purposes. Includes black and white and color prints, negatives, slides, and various photographic ephemera. Subjects in these photographs relate to Nathalie’s and Richard’s biographies, professional activities, vacations, friends, extended family, pets, and residences, 1900s to 2000s. The bulk of the materials was organized by RBW. Some items he could not classify, so he organized them under labels such as “unidentified residue.” Most of these materials have been left unorganized in their original sleeves and many have little if any identification written on them. Materials are organized into two subseries. Subseries 1: Personal photographic materials. Subseries 2: Professional photographic materials.

Series 8: Artifacts

Includes objects with historical, personal, and exhibition value.

Processing Note

The Woodbury Papers constitute one of the largest and most complete manuscript collections at ASM. As accessioned by the Museum in 2011, the Woodbury gift included Southwest arts and crafts, a huge multi-disciplinary library, research files, genealogy files, and ephemera as well as extensive personal papers. Some of the items in the collection were donated during the lives of the Woodburys, but the bulk arrived after their deaths, boxed and shipped under the supervision of ASM staff. An unintentional benefit of the direct chain of events linking the Woodbury papers to ASM is that many artifacts and tools of their profession also arrived intact. For example, the tools of the scholars’ profession -- metal file cabinets, card catalog drawers, ledgers, bound diaries, pocket notebooks, computer punch cards, and dozens of letter file boxes with decorative paper covers -- graphically demonstrate how scholarship was accomplished before photocopy machines, personal computers, or digital technology.

During a prolonged period of sorting and organization many staff members and volunteers were involved in working with the Woodbury Papers under the supervision of Mary Graham, Head of the Library and Archives. Under her direction, valuable arts and crafts were unpacked and moved to the ASM Collections Division. Archivist Amy Rule processed the papers. Books and other library materials were examined, some items added to the ASM Library, and the rest sold at the October 2012 Arizona Archaeological and Historical Society’s Estate Sale and Silent Auction to benefit the ASM Library and Archives. Lucy Magruder, an experienced retired book dealer residing near Tucson, volunteered to price the books before the sale. Her expertise made it possible to separate out the rare and valuable from the thousands of books in the collection.

In several instances, the archivist discovered historical documents that came into the Woodburys’ possession as a result of various scholarly projects, but were not strictly speaking part of their personal papers. One of the most outstanding examples of this is the box of 19th century American Ethnological Society (AES) records possibly acquired from colleagues who were early AES members. We conjecture that friends Margaret Mead or Elsie Clews Parson may have been the source for these files. An effort has been made to find appropriate homes for the AES and other orphan materials and when this was successful we have added notes in the finding aid indicating disposition.

Processing of the Woodbury Papers was completed in 2017. During this lengthy project, important encouragement, assistance, and special knowledge were contributed by Patti Bell, Alan Ferg, Mary Graham, Beth Grindell, Carol Gifford Jelinek, Chris Sugnet, and Ray Thompson.

Other Finding Aids

The complete, detailed, folder-level finding aid for this collection is 70 pages in length. It is available upon request from the Librarian or Archivist, Arizona State Museum Library and Archives.

Woodbury in about 1911. The family's participation in the Tomahawk Club on an island in Ontario, Canada, beginning in the 1890s is also richly documented. Also of note is material related to RBW's interest in taconite mining and timber sales from land originally purchased by his father Charles G. Woodbury along the Dunka River in Minnesota, 1961-1969.

Series 2: Correspondence
The basic arrangement for letters is alphabetical by correspondent. Within each alphabetic section miscellaneous letters are arranged by year. Letters by impo1iant or prolific correspondents have been given their own folders. For example, under the letter "A" are folders arranged by decade as well as separate folders for Rick Ahlstrom and E. Wyllys Andrews (among others). Correspondence in the decade folders is not indexed, so the researcher should examine the contents to find individuals of interest not found in the alphabetic folders. Note that early family correspondence is found in Series 1 with other biographical materials. Some photographs are found in these files, along with other enclosures. Of special note are the letters Richard wrote to his friends and family while deployed in World War II and while engaged in archaeological excavations.
Sub-Series 1: RBW family correspondence
Includes letters from and to his parents, grandparents, distant family, and brother, 1920s to 1960s. Note that it was common practice in the Woodbury family to mail each other's letters to family members in order to share news. This practice resulted in letters not addressed to RBW being found in his archive. Contents of these letters concern family matters, genealogy, and service in the US military during World War II, and also include discussions of professional activities. Quantity: 4 ms. boxes.

Series 3: Employment, Archaeology and Anthropology Projects, and Research, 1937-2000s
These papers are arranged chronologically with each group given a title for either the sponsoring organization or the official project designation. Records document the employment and research activities for both RBW and NSFW because in many instances, it is impossible to separate their work. After their marriage the activities of one usually meant the involvement of both. Types of materials include correspondence, photographs, business records, grant applications, ephemera, field notes, and research notes. Subseries 3-5: This group of materials documents the employment, research, and projects unde11aken by RBW before his marriage to NFSW in 1948 and later when he worked on his own separate projects. See also files documenting his service to the American Anthropological Association, American Ethnological Society, and the Society for American Archaeology in Series 4: Professional Activities. Subseries 6-15: This group of materials documents the employment, research, and projects unde1iaken by RBW and NFSW after their marriage in 1948. See also files documenting service to the American Anthropological Association, American Ethnological Society, and the Society for American Archaeology in Series 4: Professional Activities.

Sub-Series 2: NFSW Hopi Pottery Analysis Project, Museum of Northern Arizona, 1961 to 1963
Note: one box of photographs was destroyed by ASM staff. These photographs of the MNA Hopi pottery collection were made using the Agfa Fotorite process. The photographic paper had severely deteriorated, stuck together in blocks, and faded. As photographs produced in a rapid processing machine with some of the chemistry remaining in the papers, they self-destruct in a short period of time if not fixed and washed. (These prints, probably duplicates of the photographs in box 59, were removed and discarded.)

Sub-Series 4: RBW Indian mounds of northwest Florida, Columbia University, 1940-1942
Gordon Randolph Willey received his Master's degree in Anthropology from the University of Arizona in 1936. In 1939 he began graduate school at Columbia University, and there enlisted the aid of another Columbia student, Richard Woodbury, to collaborate on a survey of archaeological sites in the Florida Panhandle area. From May through August 1940, they traveled around Florida checking rumors of sites and collecting data for a chronological outline based on pottery types. Woodbury kept a travel journal and wrote descriptive letters to his family, digital copies of which are available online through the website. The originals (at least some of them) are in Series Two: Correspondence.

Sub-Series 9: El Morro and Atsinna, Columbia University, 1953-1955
Background: While on the faculty of Columbia University, Richard Woodbury was encouraged by his mentor Duncan Strong to select an excavation project in the Southwest. During the summer of 1953 he began working with graduate students and Zuni workmen in the vicinity of El Morro National Monument, Inscription Rock, Ramah, Atsinna Ruin, and Zuni to investigate the prehistory of the region and the ceramic relationships of Zuni pottery. Nathalie Woodbury collaborated on the project. Work continued in the field until 1955 and was published as "Zuni prehistory and El Morro National Monument" in Southwestern Lore v. 21, no. 4 (Mar 1956). Later grants enabled them to analyze the data collected during summer field work.
Scope and content: Consists of personal papers and official documents regarding the Columbia University archaeological excavation of the site of Atsinna in El Morro National Monument, New Mexico. Includes correspondence, newspaper clippings, notes, photographs and postcards, payroll and expense ledgers, 1952-1984. Although "excavation journals" are included, they are not journals created in the field, but are instead notes typed and annotated later. The bulk of this series consists of papers related to obtaining funding, reporting to the granting agencies, correspondence with other scholars, and arranging for the classification and storage of artifacts from the El Morro site. ASM does not hold the field survey cards or sherd collections.
Related materials: Consult the Correspondence Series for letters from and to Duncan Strong and other scholars involved in El Morro research.

Sub-Series 10: University of Arizona, Arid Lands Program, 1958-1963
After the Woodburys moved to Tucson in 1958 RBW was appointed associate professor in the new interdisciplinary Arid Lands Program and in the Anthropology Department.
This group of research files on irrigation, agriculture, and arid lands contain research materials collected by the Woodburys to suppo1t their wide-ranging investigation of water use in arid lands of the world, especially the American Southwest. Included are personal correspondence, clippings, photographs, manuscripts by other archaeologists, and ephemera related to water use throughout the world. Of note are articles and notes written by early pioneers in the study of arid lands such as Neil Judd and Frank Midvale collected from other repositories and fellow researchers. The Woodburys began this research while employed by University of Arizona and continued investigating water use for many years after leaving the University in 1963 with support of the National Science Foundation.
Other materials document RBW's field work while at the University, 1958-1963. His work with Donald H. Hiser at a Phoenix site near Pueblo Grande called "Park of Four Waters" resulted in the publication of "The Hohokam Canals at Pueblo Grande, Arizona" (1960).

Sub-Series 14: Hawikuh and Zuni research, 1919-1994 (bulk 1956-1966)
These materials, consisting of a wide variety of formats and spanning many years, are all related to Zuni culture and in particular to the ancient pueblo of Hawikuh, situated along the Zuni River in northwestern New Mexico. In 1917 the site was partially excavated by the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of the American Indian. The Hendricks-Hodge Expedition progressed over six seasons and resulted in several published rep01is, but much of its original documentation went straight into archives without final analysis or publication. During a visit to the Woodbury's house in 1955, Frederick Webb Hodge asked Richard to write the final rep01i of the Hawikuh excavations. After Hodge's death in 1956 Watson Smith was asked to lead a team to complete the study of surviving data. At this time, Mrs. Gene Meany Hodge made her husband's papers available to the project. This fact accounts for the presence today of original Hodge documents in the Woodbury Papers. Richard Woodbury, who had begun his Zuni research in 1953-55 with the excavation of Atsinna on top of El Morro National Monument, joined the project with his wife to study and write about the Hawikuh pottery collections. Their writings, along with essays by Watson Smith and Ross G. Montgomery, were included in the 1966 publication "The Excavation of Hawikuh by Frederick Webb Hodge: Rep01i of the Hendricks-Hodge Expedition" issued as volume XX in the Contributions ji·om the Museum of the American Indian Heye Foundation. After completing their research and writing in the mid- 1970s, the Woodburys donated Kechipawan burial data, Hawikuh records and notes, and documentation of Kechipawan pottery (in the Cambridge University Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology) to ASM. The rest of their Hawikuh files came to ASM with the bulk of the Woodbury papers after their deaths. Quantity: 11 boxes

Series 4: Professional activities, organizations, and travel
Both Nathalie and Richard Woodbury were active in numerous national and regional professional organizations and members of select private clubs. The Cosmos Club, for example, established by John Wesley Powell in 1878, was a quiet oasis in Washington, D. C. where scholars and scientists (including Richard Woodbury and his father) met "both to see each other and offer advice, a gentle form of lobbying," as Raymond H. Thompson has commented. The Woodburys were editors of journals, were involved in planning, attending conferences, compiling the history of the groups, and writing for publications. These files contain correspondence, newsletters, conference programs, publications, and miscellaneous ephemera.

Sub-Series 7: American Ethnological Society
Nathalie Woodbury served as secretary and treasurer of the Society during various periods in the 1960s and as a result kept files of Society business. Through her associations with other members she came into possession of approximately 5 linear inches of records from the 1830s through 1890s. These materials were transferred to the National Anthropological Archives at the Smithsonian Institution in 2017. It is expected that Nathalie's records will join the 36 linear feet of Society records already in that collection.

Sub-Series 4: RBW Awatovi, 1989-2008
In the late 1980s, archaeologist Hester A. Davis, daughter of Mott Davis, one of the original archaeologists at the Peabody Museum's Awatovi excavations, contacted RBW and other original participants to ask for their help in writing a social history of the project. Her Awatovi Project Monthly Report kept all the participants (including Evelyn Brew, Harriet Cosgrove, John M. Longyear, and Watson Smith) informed and involved. Remembering Awatovi: the st01y of an archaeological expedition in northern Arizona, 1935-1939 was published by Peabody Museum Press in 2008. RBW worked closely with Davis, utilizing his personal experience at Awatovi excavations and his talents as an editor to help shape the book. Of special importance in his files are about 300 original photographs he made at Awatovi, 1938-1939. Some of these were reproduced in the 2008 monograph. See also Series 3: Employment and archaeology.

January 1994 Wed 26th
Light snow all night to midday but only: 1 ½". Clearing & steadily colder - 8 degrees this morning, up to 12 degrees & now down to zero with bright full moon. Beautiful but bitter. Birds have been busy these days, never stopping. Pleased to see 2 red-breasted nuthatches - such handsome, perky birds (a pair, I hope). Some time on AAA history, but it goes so slowly. Long ph visit with Susie Skommid [?], AAA office, and she told us of the deaths of Carlyle Smith and John Westhaft [?], as well as others we didn't know. So sad. For lunch made creamed corn soup from last Sept's frozen. So good we had a modest supper of left-overs. N walked Poncho this afternoon and had such a stressful time, what with slippey underfoot and him straining at the leash, that it isn't sensible to take him out until the snow and the ice are gone.
Th 27th
At sunrise clear and minus 12, at bedtime snowing and plus 15 - but warm with fzg rain and rain expected tomorrow. Ugh! A solo trip in the morning for groceries, mainly for a beef stew, for copying a mass of Irwin [?]-Williams self-documentation for Doug Givens, for red wine for the stew, for pants at the cleaners, and the bank to deposit checks. Nothing from Jeff Bochs [?]. Doug Turner painting this afternoon, part way thru N's bedroom. Poco a poco! Bkfst at the stove in honor of the cold, or German Toast.
F 28th
Snow had changed to sleet and freezing rain during (2 ") the night with ice on every twig and pine needle, binding them all [?]: discouragingly- but mid afternoon it got warmer and all the ice melted. Up to 50 degrees! But the heavy crust of ice made the road terrible, tho Poncho and I managed a 4:30 walk and a bedtime "go across" - but he hates to get his feet wet! Still warm and dripping at bedtime. Didn't make the stew today but did make Pumpkin Bread, which came out fairly well. [drawing of low rectangular loaf shape], but not [drawing of loaf shape with high curved top]. And for dessert tonight N. made a splendid rice pudding. We live well.
Sat 29th
Still cold, but roads solid with ice with a bit of sluch on top - terrible. We were planned getting rid of several inches of ice and hard crust - but what next - same? Shoveled the path from garage to rear drive, and got some ice off the garage floor by the door - but ice, ice, ice from there out. Made a beef stew, which came out well. And N. made a fine custard. [Weather summary newspaper clipping is pasted on the journal page with annotations by RBW to clarify data.]
Sun 30th
From 18 to 28 and now 15 [degrees] - no melting and roads, as far as we've gone, awful. High Point no sand at a:11, W'ood [?] a good layer of sand in the middle, frozen and slick both sides. Our afternoon, 4:30, walk was different. We'd just inched down the drive when Mary Wilson (Bowder) and her husband came by - walking! She said I shouldn't be there, could she walk Poncho? I agreed, Poncho agreed less readily, and off they went. Much later arrived at the garage door, trailing his leash. Mrs Wilson followed - he'd refused to let her come all the way up the drive - so protective!! Long ph visit with Dana, and later with Melba - over worked, a low-grade infection (cold? Virus?), but keeping warm. May go to the campus on skis - a mile. Snow, snow, snow.
31 Jan, Mon
Still cold, temps to 20s, road (w-ood) a mass of ice with a [?] of sand and [?] - slick with hardly any sand. Walking with P. is an ordeal! Some time on AAA ms, but it goes slowly Excellent pancake bkfst, they turned out "too thick" like little brown biscuits almost, a nice innovation. Doug Turner here, finished N's bedroom. LR next, and then the kitchen. It advances but slowly.
