A legacy of arctic art

by Dorothy Jean Ray

Paper Book, 1996




Seattle : Published for the University of Alaska Museum by the University of Washington Press, c1996.


Dorothy Jean Ray describes her collection of nearly one hundred Eskimo artifacts, now part of the University of Alaska Museum, Fairbanks, and provides an engaging and colorful history of her own pioneering work as an anthropologist, researcher, and writer. Functioning both as a catalog and memoir, the book combines the formal, analytical description of each object with an informal discussion of the author's relationships with the artists and others from whom she obtained these pieces.
