Collection Historical Note

Lawrence “Larry” C. Kelly was a former professor of history at North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas). Kelly’s professional specialization focused on Native American history and United States policies concerning Indigenous populations. Professor Kelly published a great many articles including; “The Indian Reorganization Act: The Dream and the Reality” (1975), “Anthropology and Anthropologists in the Indian New Deal” (1980), and “Federal Indian Policy” (1990). Kelly’s relationship with anthropologists was of mutual benefit; much of the professor’s published work drew from information gleaned in the interviews of professional anthropologists and Lawrence Kelly is frequently cited in accredited academic anthropological papers.
