Collection History:

Collected by Leuman Maurice Waugh (1877-1972), a dentist, explorer, and lecturer who advocated for the dental health of northern indigenous communities and documented his work and travels with photography. Waugh's research on the teeth and diet of indigenous communities took him to Labrador, Canada, between 1921 and 1927 and to twelve Alaskan Eskimo communities between 1929 and 1938. After his death, Waugh's photographs and papers were donated to the Rankin Museum of American Heritage (Ellerbe, North Carolina), founded by Dr. Pressley R. Rankin, Jr. and Paula Rankin. In 2001, NMAI purchased Waugh's collection of papers, photographic materials, and Arctic artifacts from the Rankin Museum.
