Title: Bushnell, David Ives, Jr. (1875 - 1941) Collection Records,
Quantity: 2.25 linear feet
Language of materials: English
David I. Bushnell bequeathed part of his ethnographic and archaeological collection
to the Peabody Museum when he died in 1941. His mother, Mrs. Belle Johnston Bushnell, eventually donated his remaining collection to the Peabody Museum in 1946. The Bushnell
Collection Records accompanied the large painting and artifact collection. A portion
of the collection was catalogued at its accession date, and the collection was dispersed
throughout the museum. In 1995 the remainder of the collection was catalogued, and
photographs were transferred to Photo Archives. The records were transferred to the
Archives in 1997.
Processed by: Sarah R. Demb, April 1998
Until recently, the manuscript and photographic material were stored together and
were largely uncatalogued and underutilized. The artifact material was inventoried
by Collections Department Assistant Dr. Penny Drooker in 1995. In the fall of 1996,
Ellie Swain, Research Assistant in the PM, began working on the Bushnell Collection
under the guidance of Maranne McDade, Curatorial Associate in the Photographic Archives.
The project involved the separation of the photographic material from the manuscript
material for cataloguing and preservation purposes. As the collection covered all
aspects of Bushnell's professional and personal interests, extensive research of Bushnell's
published material and archaeological field notes, as well as comprehensive review
of the photographic holdings was required. In addition, careful attention was paid
to maintaining the relationship between the photographs and the written material.
Much of the manuscript material was described at the item level to enable curators
to identify all the artifacts during cataloguing.
Once the photographic materials were catalogued, the manuscript and publication materials
were transferred to the Archives.

Born in 1875 in St. Louis, Missouri, David Ives Bushnell, Jr. was introduced to archaeological and ethnographic material at an early age. His father,
David Bushnell, Sr., served on the Advisory Committee at the Missouri Historical Society for many years, was appointed the vice-president at one time, and was a trustee from
1898-1913. Never formally trained as an anthropologist, David I. Bushnell Jr. enjoyed a wide
range of interests in the field of anthropology, archaeology and ethnography. Bushnell extensively photographed his numerous expeditions, many of which resulted
in the publications he produced throughout his life. Schooled in St. Louis and later
in Europe, Bushnell was never a student at Harvard University, but was associated with the University from 1901-1904 as an archaeological assistant at the Peabody Museum. He was later appointed as an editor at the Smithsonian Institution's Bureau of American Ethnology (BAE) where he remained from 1912-1921. His widespread interests and his reputation as a scholar and collector began in 1899 when Bushnell embarked on his first anthropological expedition to Northern Minnesota where he observed and recorded life among the Chippewa and Ojibwa as well as participated in an archaeological excavation at Mille Lac. In 1902, he studied saltmaking at Kimmswick in southern Missouri. In 1904, Bushnell excavated at the Cahokia Mounds. That same year, he also took a trip with his mother to Europe and documented North American ethnographic material housed in European collections
and museums. While in Switzerland, he excavated and collected specimens from peat bogs. He returned to Charlottesville, Virginia in 1907 and was hired as a contributor to the Handbook of American Indians. He continued his anthropological investigations in 1908-1909 to study the Choctaw in Louisiana, and later returned to the area in 1917-1918. In the decades to follow, Bushnell devoted much of his time to excavations in Virginia, specifically in the James and Rappahannock Valleys, as well as to documenting soapstone quarries in the region.
