Phillips Fund for Native American Research Collection


Date: 1605-2017 | Size: 30 Linear feet


The Phillips Fund Collection consists of materials submitted to the APS by recipients of grants from its Phillips Fund for Native American Research. The materials vary in scope, ranging from linguistics to ethnography, musicology, religion, ethnobotany, and ethnohistory, and including studies of Indigenous peoples of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Materials in this collection include brief project reports, dissertations, published and unpublished manuscripts, dictionaries and vocabularies, field notes, and audiovisual materials.

Background note

In 1895, Henry Phillips left a portion of his estate to the American Philosophical Society to support research in archaeology and philology, to which supplementary bequests were added in 1903 by his aunt, Emily Phillips, and uncle, Henry M. Phillips. Originally used to acquire books in these subject areas, the increasing strength of the APS collections for Native American languages combined with a critical need for support for primary research led to a gradual change in the use of the Phillips Fund.

Since the 1930s, the APS had provided grants to support research on Native American languages, but in 1941, a Special Committee on the Future Policy of the Library recommended tapping the Phillips Fund for this purpose. Following approval of the Committee on the Library in 1944, the first grant under the Phillips Fund was awarded in the fall, 1945, supporting Zellig Harris of the University of Pennsylvania in his research on the Cherokee language. Since the 1960s, the results of Phillips grants -- including field notes, audio and visual recordings, dissertations, and published and unpublished works -- have been sent to the Library for inclusion in its collections.

The Phillips Fund currently provides grants for research in Native American linguistics and ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada. Information about the Fund can be found at the Phillips Fund section of the American Philosophical Society website.

Scope and content

The Phillips Fund Collection is arranged alphabetically by grantee of the Phillips Fund, with some grantees submitting materials for multiple grants.

While no systematic effort was made to gather the results of early Phillips grants (up until around the 1950s), several grantees, including Zellig Harris, sent sound recordings, notes, or other works anyway. In most cases, these were incorporated into the American Council of Learned Society's Committee on Native American Languages Collection (also known as the Franz Boas Linguistic Collection).

Native American Images note: Over 400 black and white silver gelatin photographs, color photographs, color slides, color VHS video, photocopy prints, and ink sketches of eleven different Native American tribes contained in thirteen grantee reports from 1964-1995. Arranged alphabetically by contributor, the images reflect Seneca political charts (Abler); Mayan street festivals (Adams); early Minnesota Dakota settlements (Bray); old Oraibi Hopi pueblo (Cameron); murals of Oklahoma tribes (Carlisle); Taino island scenes (Forbes); Navajo mountain community (Hammond); Conquest of Itza (Hellmuth); Hopi pottery (Kealiinohomoku); Stockbridge-Munsee community (Mochon); Dakota Pine Ridge reservation (Powers); Mixtec picture-writing (Troike); Seneca dwellings (Wyler). Of note, the Oklahoma post office murals of Seminoles, Kiowa, and Chickasaws were painted by Native American artists from 1939-1943. Also of note, the Bray video details cartographer Joseph Nicollet 1836-1840 expedition to the Upper Mississippi River. The slides by Powers are housed in the Photograph Collection. Almost all images are housed with their corresponding textual reports in the Phillips Fund collection.

Digital objects note

This collection contains digital materials that are available in the APS Digital Library. Links to these materials are provided with context in the inventory of this finding aid. A general listing of digital objects may also be found here.
