Irving Hallowell (1892-1974) was a cultural anthropologist known for his work with the North American Indians, especially the Ojibwa. He was a student of Frank Speck, but was also heavily influenced by Franz Boas. Bear Ceremonialism, Hallowell's 1924 University of Pennsylvania doctoral dissertation, was his first major publication. It has since become a classic in the field and the best-known comparative study of cultural traditions and ceremonies relating to bears.
