Abstract: Papers of Roy A. Rappaport, an ethnographic anthropologist. The collection includes research papers and materials generated from his fieldwork with the Tsembaga Maring of the Simbai Valley in Papua New Guinea during two field trips (1962-1963 and 1981-1982). Rappaport's first field trip was in conjunction with Columbia University for his dissertation, and the second trip served as a follow-up study. Rappaport's research was concerned with the means by which religious ritual mediates the relationships of a congregation, or population, to external entities. The papers include correspondence with colleagues, students, friends, and local Papua New Guinea officials; manuscripts of published and unpublished works; ethnographic data collected in field notebooks; typescript summaries; field notes and maps; diaries; photographs and sound recordings.

Scope and Content of Collection

Papers of Roy A. Rappaport, an ethnographic anthropologist. The collection includes research papers and materials generated from his fieldwork with the Tsembaga Maring of the Simbai Valley in Papua New Guinea during two field trips (1962-1963 and 1981-1982). Rappaport's research was concerned with the means by which religious ritual mediates the relationships of a congregation, or population, to external entities. The papers include correspondence with colleagues, students, friends, and local Papua New Guinea officials; manuscripts of published and unpublished works; ethnographic data collected in field notebooks; typescript summaries; field notes and maps; diaries; photographs and sound recordings.
The fieldwork from 1962-1963 represents Rappaport's research for his dissertation. The second trip (1981-1982) served as a follow-up study that reflected similar interests, but ultimately demonstrated how the Tsembaga Maring have acculturated in the face of increasing pressure from Western culture. There is a greater breadth and depth of research material from the first trip; however, the research from the second trip evidences some comparative studies. Rappaport's wife, Ann, compiled extensive Tsembaga Maring linguistic material, which is also included in the papers. The collection was processed in two accessions.

Biography

Roy A. "Skip" Rappaport (1926-1997) was born in New York City. He earned his B.S. in hotel administration from Cornell University (1949) and his Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University (1966).
From October 1962 to December 1963, Rappaport spent fourteen months in the Simbai Valley of the Madang Territory in Papua New Guinea researching the Tsembaga Maring for his dissertation. The Tsembaga Maring, shifting swidden horticulturists, occupied approximately three square miles of the southern wall of the Simbai Valley, a region that had been contacted (1958) and "controlled" (1962) by the Australian government. Rappaport collected extensive information on Tsembaga demography, ritual, animal husbandry, gardening, linguistics, and nutrition. His research was supplemented by contact with other researchers in the Simbai Valley working with neighboring tribes, including Andrew and Cherry Vayda and Allison and Marek Jablonko, who were associated with the Columbia University Expedition along with Rappaport. In addition, Ann Rappaport, who accompanied her husband in the field, was primarily responsible for Tsembaga Maring linguistic research.
Rappaport's dissertation, "Ritual in the Ecology of a New Guinea People: An Anthropological Study of the Tsembaga Maring" (1966), was later expanded to Pigs for the Ancestors: Ritual in the Ecology of a New Guinea People (1967). It became a landmark study of human ecology in a New Guinea central highland tribal society.
Just prior to defending his dissertation, Rappaport accepted a position in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Michigan where he was a faculty member from 1965 until 1997, eventually distinguishing himself as the Walgreen Professor for the Study of Human Understanding. In addition, he served as the chair (1975-1980) of the Department of Anthropology and was the president of the American Anthropological Association from 1987-1989.
A grant from the National Science Foundation enabled Rappaport to take a second trip to the Simbai Valley from October 1981 to August 1982. This trip served as a follow-up study designed to analyze the change and acculturation of the Tsembaga Maring under increasing pressure from Western culture.
Rappaport authored two additional books: Ecology, Meaning, and Religion (1984) and, Ritual and Religion in the Making of Humanity (1999), published posthumously. He also authored over 60 journal articles.

FIELD NOTES, 1962-1963

Scope and Content of Series

SERIES 2) FIELD NOTES, 1962-1963. Arranged in three subseries: A) Diaries, Field Notebooks and Typescript Summaries; B) Note Cards and C) Subject Files.
A) Diaries, Field Notebooks and Typescript Summaries: Arranged alphabetically by format and chronologically within each format, containing Rappaport's notes on the activities of the Tsembaga, such as interviews with informants, details from conversations, linguistic material, and observations. The diaries, field notebooks, and typescript summaries reflect similar information recorded at different times of the day. The field notebooks contain unrefined information obtained in the field through conversations with informants and observations. Also included in the field notebooks are brief shot lists of several rolls of the black-and-white film. The field notebooks are supplemented by "Scaling books," which record trophic data of individual families. The typescript summaries are detailed recapitulations of the field notebooks with some explication or supposition of the three formats; they offer the greatest depth and breadth of information. In addition to being a general recapitulation of Rappaport's activities, the diaries also reflect chores, ideas to explore, personal information, and general observations not necessarily pertinent to Rappaport's dissertation.
B) Note Cards: Arranged alphabetically by category. The categories include notes on linguistics, Pigs for the Ancestors and research material. The research material is primarily composed of gardening notes, including botany and horticultural techniques, and notes regarding Tsembaga cultural dynamics, such as political organizations, economics, religion and art. The linguistic material was primarily compiled by Rappaport's wife, Ann.
C) Subject Files: Arranged alphabetically by subject and contains population censuses, garden censuses, aerial photographs and maps of Rappaports's study area, and linguistic material. Also included are two letters from "MM" to Andrew Peter Vayda, Rappaport's advisor, in a folder titled "Preparation Lists and Notes." "MM" may refer to Margaret Mead, who served as an advisor for the Columbia University Expedition of 1962-1963, and was a member of Rappaport's dissertation committee.

PHOTOGRAPHS

Scope and Content of Series

SERIES 6) PHOTOGRAPHS: Arranged in three subseries: A) Black-and-White Prints, B) Color Slides and C) Negatives.
A) Black-and-White Prints: Prints and contact sheets of images taken from Rappaport's 1962-1963 fieldwork. The images document daily village life as well as aspects of ritual. Several of the contact sheets have corresponding shot lists associated with them located in SERIES 2A, and many of the prints are from negatives in SERIES 6C.
B) Color Slides: Divided into two distinct groups labelled "S" and "T." The "S" slides are from a 1960 Tahitian archaeological expedition in which Rappaport participated, and include slides taken in Taiwan, Japan, Australia, and New York. The "T" slides are from Rappaport's 1962-1963 Papua New Guinea field work and document daily village activity as well as aspects of ritual. Generally, there is descriptive annotation on the slides. This subseries contains several images of Rappaport, as well as his wife Ann.
C) Negatives: Original 35mm black and white negatives. This subseries has been entirely digitized, and images are available for viewing by clicking on the links in the container list below. To re-create the order in which the photographs were taken, refer to the frame number at the end of the image title. Prints of many of these negatives are in SERIES 6A. Original negatives are restricted.
