Return to Part 5


In 1959, Knez wrote various embassies for publications about their countries. A segment of the folders in this series contain the information he received. In addition, Knez maintained pamphlets, publications, articles, professional journals, programs and abstracts of professional meetings, popular magazines, newspaper clippings, college and university Asian program information, books, maps, photographs, and mimeograph sheets documenting Asia, and to a lesser extent, Native Americans, Central and South America, Europe, and anthropology and ethnology, in general.

In addition, there are journal abstracts, books, test patterns, and other information specifically documenting his work on psychology and personality examinations while he was with the United States Army during World War II, including the effect of combat and war wounds on the psychology and mental health of veterans, and other information documenting army strategy and information about Asia published by the military. This material can be found under United States Army and Related Military Monographs and Reports; United States Army Material, Post-1945; and United States, Publications on Psychology and War Strategy. There are also linguistic studies and publications written in Chinese, Korean, and Japanese. Where possible, publications, maps, photographs, and other informational materials have been filed within a geographical location (either country or region), while professional association information has been filed under the name of the association.

At times this system has been modified, for example, professional journals from New Mexico and New Mexico University have been filed under New Mexico, and studies about industrialization and society are filed under technological change. Information from this series should be used in conjunction with similar subject information that may be found in other series to these papers. All Asian material should be used as a supplement to all of the series in these papers, particularly information concerning Japan and Korea.

The images in this series document cultural object collections, people, culture, and geographical locations. The initial basis for the description to this series comes from the finding aid written by Barbara Coons in April 1980. Additional information about the collections have been found since that date and additional images have been transferred to the Knez papers after 1980. As a result, the series description and notes to specific collections have been revised.

Most of the photographic materials which comprise this series were collected from various sources by Knez and relate to his work as Curator of Asian Anthropology at the National Museum of Natural History (previously the United States National Museum), Smithsonian Institution. A good segment of the photographic materials in this series document the arts, crafts, buildings, and people of the Pakistani states of Sind and Baluchistan. Because most of the photographs were labeled "West Pakistan," it can be assumed that they were taken prior to December, 1971, when war separated Bangladesh (formerly East Pakistan) from Pakistan (formerly West Pakistan).

The remainder of the series includes photographs of Thailand, Tibet, pictures of the opening of a 1973 Smithsonian exhibition on Bhutan, objects in a Korean Art exhibition, a Chinese temple, Japanese folk art, Korean art, culture, and archeology, and India. Photographs documenting Knez's family dating back to the 1930s, field trips in the Southwest around the late 1930s, his army activities during World War II, photographs taken in Korea from around the 1920s to the 1940s and during the Korean War will be found under series thirteen, biographical and autobiographical material. Photographs may also be found in the series subject file, exhibitions, and research projects. Some of the photographic content overlap between all of these series. There are also some photographs in the geographical and publication series. This series consists of black and white prints (many with negatives), color prints and negatives, color slides, glass plates, postcards, and photo cards.
