Item Description: Government Printing Bureau, Ottawa, 1915. Original Stiff Wrappers. Book Condition: About Very Good. First Edition. Royal octavo. xiv+437+[vii ad] pages with plates and appendix. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/2") issued in wrappers. Canada Department of Mines, Geological Survey Memoir 80, Anthropological Series number 11. 1st edition. C Marius Barbeau in 1897 he began studies for the priesthood at the Collège commercial, Frères des Écoles chrétiennes, switched in 1903 to pursuit of a law degree at Université Laval, which he received in 1907, and studied on a Rhodes Scholarship at Oxford University from 1907 to 1910, where he switched to a career in anthropology, studying under R. R. Marett. In 1911 he joined the National Museum of Canada (then part of the Geological Survey of Canada) as an anthropologist, where he remained until his retirement in 1949. (The GSC subdivided in 1920, so that from that point on Barbeau was with the Victoria Memorial Museum, later renamed, in 1927, the National Museum of Canada.) At the beginning, he and Edward Sapir were Canada's first and only two full-time anthropologists. Under those auspices, Barbeau began fieldwork in 1911-1912 with the Huron-Wyandot people around Quebec City, in southern Ontario, and in Oklahoma, mostly collecting stories and songs. In 1913 the German-American anthropologist Franz Boas, then of the American Folklore Society (AFS), convinced Barbeau to specialize in French Canadian folklore, and Barbeau began collecting such material the following year. In 1918 Barbeau became president of the AFS. Barbeau's fieldwork and writings on all aspects of French Canadian creative expression led to numerous popular and scholarly publications and are credited with contributing significantly to the rise of Québécois nationalism in the late 20th century. Beginning in December of 1914, Barbeau carried out three months' fieldwork in Lax Kw'alaams (a.k.a. Port Simpson), British Columbia, the largest Tsimshian village in Canada, in collaboration with his interpreter, William Beynon, a Tsimshian hereditary chief. The anthropologist Wilson Duff (who in the late 1950s was entrusted by Barbeau with organizing the information) has called these three months "one of the most productive field seasons in the history of [North] American anthropology," and it led to a decades-long collaboration between Barbeau and Beynon and an enormous volume of fieldnotes, still mostly unpublished -- which Duff has characterized as "the most complete body of information on the social organization of any Indian nation." Barbeau eventually trained Beynon in phonetic transcription, and he became an ethnological fieldworker in his own right. Barbeau and Beynon followed this up with 1923-1924 fieldwork on the middle Skeena River with the Kitselas and Kitsumkalum Tsimshians and the Gitksan, and 1927 and 1929 field seasons among the Nisga'a of the Nass River. In 1922 Barbeau became the founding Secretary of the Canadian Historical Association. In 1942 he began lecturing at Laval and at the University of Ottawa. In 1945 he was made a Professor at Laval. He retired in 1954, after suffering a stroke. Condition: Light edge wear, spine heal bumped and lightly stained else about very good. Bookseller Inventory # A0046
