In this book, originally published in 1972 by the Smithsonian Institution Press, the author presents a valuable study of the cultural context illustrated by the drawings and paintings discovered during the summer of 1967. Found in an old storage unit at the Smithsonian's Department of Anthropology in the National Museum of Natural History, the sketches depict various scenes of Eskimo life as drawn by Natives in the artwork used in printing early publications of the Smithsonian's Bureau of American Ethnology. The sketches were mounted on large cardboard posters and labeled "Education in Alaska," and were attributed to the United States Bureau of Education.
