Collection History:

Frederick Johnson began his anthropological studies as a teenager, accompanying anthropologist Frank G. Speck (1881-1951) on trips to Native communities in Quebec. Between 1923 and 1929, Johnson studied at the University of Pennsylvania and conducted several research trips in Canada and the U.S., some of which were sponsored by MAI. This photograph probably accompanied the object collections he acquired for MAI.
