Historical Note

The Works Progress Administration, Statewide Archaeological Project was initiated in the spring of 1938 by Emil W. Haury, Department of Anthropology and the Arizona State Museum, University of Arizona. In May, 1938, the Arizona Board of Regents appointed a State Committee on Anthropology to draw up a proposal for the project and to recommend supervisory personnel for it. The committee was composed of Emil W. Haury, University of Arizona, Tucson, Chairman; Harold S. Colton, Museum of Northern Arizona, Flagstaff; Harold S. Gladwin, Gila Pueblo, Globe; Byron Cummings, Arizona State Museum, Tucson; and Odd S. Halseth, Pueblo Grande, Phoenix. The committee submitted a project proposal to the previous hitWPA next hit in June, 1938. After various bureaucratic delays and a request to rewrite the entire proposal, the previous hitWPA next hit approved the original proposal in September, 1938. It was assigned Project no. 1102. Project activities began in October, 1938, and ended in October, 1940.

The Statewide Archaeological Project, as approved by the previous hitWPA next hit, was divided into 5 subprojects with Roy Lassetter, Tucson, appointed Project Superintendent (this title varied as did all the titles on this project). Lassetter remained Project Superintendent until July 8, 1940, when he resigned to go into the Army. Irene Vickrey was then appointed Acting Project Superintendent, a position she held until the project was closed.

The subprojects were:

Subproject A, co-sponsored by the Museum of Northern Arizona
and the Arizona State Teachers' College
, Flagstaff, with Harold S. Colton as the sponsors' director. No mention is made of the State Teachers' College sponsorship except in the project proposal. John C. McGregor was the Archaeologist and Milton Wetherill was the Assistant Archaeologist on this subproject. Katharine Bartlett was also actively involved. The proposed activities of Subproject A were to prepare archaeological and ethnological material for publication; restore prehistoric pottery and prepare artifacts for exhibit; upgrade the MNA museum catalog; and excavate Winona Village and Ridge Ruin. Occasional mention is made of a Subproject A-1 located at Tuzigoot with Milton Wetherill as previous hitWPA next hit project supervisor. However, Wetherill seems to have ended up working in Flagstaff instead.

Subproject B, sponsored by the City of Phoenix
through Pueblo Grande with Odd S. Halseth as the sponsor's director. previous hitWPA next hit project supervisors or foremen were Albert H. Schroeder from October, 1938, to ca. September, 1939, and Paul Ezell from ca. September, 1939, to December, 1939. It is unclear who, if anyone, replaced Ezell when he left. Subproject B's proposed activities were to upgrade Pueblo Grande Museum
storage; conduct an Indian art project; and survey and trench prehistoric sites in the Salt River Valley.

Subproject C, sponsored by the Arizona State Museum
, University of Arizona
, with Emil W. Haury as the sponsor's director. previous hitWPA next hit project supervisor was Roy Lassetter from October, 1938 to July, 1940. It is unclear who replaced him; possibly George A. Burns, Senior Typist, was put in charge. Proposed activities of Subproject C were to prepare museum materials and manuscripts for publication; make a bibliographic survey of the library; and the preparation of skeletal material.

Subprojects D and E, co-sponsored by Gila Pueblo and the City of Globe
, with Harold S. Gladwin as the sponsors' director. Irene Vickrey was the previous hitWPA next hit supervisor. Subprojects D and E were written up separately in the project proposal but were treated as one project, called Subproject D, in the ensuing material. Proposed activities of Subproject D were the excavation and repair of significant ruins and the preparation of materials collected therefrom. The proposed activity of Subproject E was to excavate a prehistoric ruin near the Inspiration Mine. Besh-ba-gowah, Inspiration I and Inspiration II were excavated and a museum in Globe was maintained under Subprojects D and E.

There is mention of another Subproject E - this one at the Smoki Museum
in Prescott. There is no evidence in this collection that this project ever came to pass.

Funds for the Statewide Archaeological Project were expended by September 27, 1940, and the project was officially closed October 4, 1940.


Scope and Content Note

The collection relates to the administration of the Works Progress Administration, Statewide Archaeological Project, from 1938 when a State Committee of Anthropology was appointed to draw up a proposal for the project until 1940 when the project ended. The project was divided into four subprojects: Subproject A, sponsored by the Museum of Northern Arizona
, Flagstaff, and directed by Harold S. Colton; Subproject B, sponsored by Pueblo Grande and the City of Phoenix and directed by Odd S. Halseth; Subproject C, sponsored by the Arizona State Museum, Tucson, and directed by Emil W. Haury; Subproject D, sponsored by Gila Pueblo and the City of Globe and directed by Harold S. Gladwin. At the beginning of the project there was a Subproject E but it soon became incorporated with Subproject D. Material in this collection relates to the individual subprojects as well as to the project as a whole.

The goals of the project were to upgrade museum storage and cataloguing, prepare material for publication, and conduct archaeological investigations. Significant excavations were done at Winona Village and Ridge Ruin by Subproject A and at Besh-ba-gowah and Inspiration I and II by Subproject D. Field notes and other results of the work done by the Statewide Archaeological Project are not included in this collection except for two bibliographies and lists of donors, materials and books completed by Subproject C. Material on financial and personnel matters can be found in Series 1, Correspondence and Personal Memos, as well as in Series 6, Personnel Records, and Series 7, Financial Records, because that was the way the records were originally ordered. Principal correspondents are Harold S. Colton, Byron Cummings, Paul Ezell, Harold S. Gladwin, Odd S. Halseth, Emil W. Haury, Roy Lassetter, John C. McGregor, Agnes Hunt Parke, Albert H. Schroeder, and Irene S. Vickrey.

Container List

Series 1: Correspondence and Personal Memos , 1938-40
Series 1 consists of 16 folders of material arranged chronologically. The first four folders contain general correspondence and memos concerning the appointment of the State Committee on Anthropology and the committee's efforts to establish the Statewide Archaeological Project. Folders 5-9 contain general correspondence and memos dealing with personnel and financial matters, reporting procedures and the individual subprojects of the Statewide Archaeological Project. Much of the correspondence for the spring of 1939 dealt with the possible termination of Irene Vickrey. The establishment of a subproject in Yavapai County was discussed at length during the winter and spring of 1940. Principal correspondents found in the material in folders 1-9 were Harold S. Colton, Byron Cummings, Harold S. Gladwin, Odd S. Halseth, Emil W. Haury, Roy Lassetter, John C. McGregor, Agnes Hunt Parke, Albert H. Schroeder, and Irene S. Vickrey.
The correspondence and memos in the remaining seven folders are divided by subproject: Subproject A, 1 folder; Subproject B, 3 folders; Subproject C, 1 folder, and Subproject D and E, 2 folders. This correspondence was primarily between the subproject personnel and Roy Lassetter, the Project Superintendent. Most of it deals with personnel matters and reporting procedures. Topics specific to the individual subprojects are:
Subproject A, Winona Village, Ridge Ruin, and the employment of Milton Wetherill. Principal correspondents were Katharine Bartlett, Harold S. Colton, Emil W. Haury, Roy Lassetter, John C. McGregor and Agnes Hunt Parke;
Subproject B, personnel conflicts and possible misuse of public funds. Principal correspondents were Paul Ezell, Odd S. Halseth, Emil W. Haury, Roy Lassetter and Albert H. Schroeder;
Subproject C, personnel matters and reporting procedures only. Roy Lassetter was supervisor of this subproject as well as the Project Superintendent;
Subproject D, Besh-ba-gowah and Inspiration I and II. Principal correspondents were Emil W. Haury, Roy Lassetter, Agnes Hunte Parke and Irene S. Vickrey.
