Bear Ceremonialism in the Northern Hemisphere

American Anthropologist, 1926.

Softcover. Very good. Offprint from the American Anthropologist, Vol. 28m No. 1, January-March, 1926. 175 pp, in original printed wrappers. Light soiling and some chipping to the wraps, internally clean and tight. A. 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.
