Scope and Contents of Collection

The papers document the professional correspondence and research of anthropologist and professor Terence Hays. The bulk of the collection is centered largely around three field studies conducted by Hays in Papua New Guinea, and is arranged in three series: 1) CORRESPONDENCE, 2) FIELD NOTES and 3) WRITINGS.
SERIES 1: CORRESPONDENCE
The CORRESPONDENCE series illustrates the large amount of administrative work necessary for one to organize a trip to a location as remote as the Papua New Guinea Highlands, as well as numerous requests for research materials and publications from colleagues in similar fields of study, and dialogues on his and others' research subjects.
SERIES 2: FIELD NOTES
Hays' FIELD NOTES span his three grant-funded field studies in Papua New Guinea. The first study spanned fifteen months, beginning in July 1971, and focused on the variation of plant and animal knowledge of individuals in a Tairora-speaking community (Ndumba) in the Kainantu District of Eastern Highlands Province. The second study spanned two months in 1981 and focused on ethnobiology, gender relations, and oral literature in the same Eastern Highlands community. Hays' third study took place over a month in 1985 and served to further the research he began in 1981. The field notes comprise thirty-two handwritten notebooks from his first field study in 1971-1972, followed by loose-leaf handwritten notes from all three expeditions which are arranged by subject. Hays' typed field notes, which aggregate the contents of the field notebooks and notes from the three field studies with the rest of his research, are filed by subjects he assigned himself.
SERIES 3: WRITINGS
The WRITINGS series contains a number of Hays' unpublished papers on the people and plants of the Papua New Guinea Highlands, as well as one unpublished article and one report used for research.
