Abstract

The papers and research of UNT Anthropology department chair and faculty member, Dr. Larry Naylor.

Scope and Contents of the Materials

Items in Dr. Naylor's papers include photos, slides, films, and records, largely focused on his field work with the Dani people in Papua, Indonesia--then known as Irian Barat and later Irian Jaya--and also in Alaska. Material documents the native peoples' culture, including their villages, homes, cemeteries, markets, farming, artwork, and as they go about their daily lives. Records include Naylor's notebooks, documents related to the study like articles and correspondence, data print-outs and reports, and record books. Some documents are written/typed in the native Papuan language.

Collection Historical Note

Dr. Larry Naylor (1940-2010) worked in the Antrhopology department at UNT from 1978 - 2004. He received his bachelor’s degree from the State University of New York at Geneseo, and his master’s and doctoral degrees from Southern Illinois University. Naylor completed social-cultural fieldwork in Papua, New Guinea, and Ecuador and was on the anthropology faculty at the University of Alaska in Fairbanks before joining North Texas as director of the anthropology program. He helped develop the Department of Anthropology and served as chair for 14 years. He published six books and developed many courses over his career. Prior to this, Naylor was a U.S. Army paratrooper with the Special Forces and was stationed at Fort Knox, KY during the Vietnam War. [Source: Star Gazette obituary]
