In 2018, the papers of Edmund Carpenter were given to the National Anthropology Archives at the Smithsonian Institution. The papers include manuscript drafts, research papers, notes, correspondence, visual reference materials, film and other documents pertaining to Carpenter’s work and life. The Smithsonian has endeavored to digitize the archive and make it available to researchers via a dedicated online portal. 

We are pleased to announce that the Smithsonian Online Virtual Archives has added the Edmund Carpenter papers to its portfolio of reference materials now available to the public. Please follow this link to view the archive:
