Biographical Note

Sol Tax (1907-1996) was a prominent cultural anthropologist. He completed a Bachelor's degree at the University of Wisconsin in Madison in 1931, a M.A. and Ph.D. at the University of Chicago (1932 and 1935). He took a faculty position at University of Chicago in 1940 and remained there until 1977. Tax founded the academic journal Current Anthropology (1959), served on the National Research Council Committee on Latin American Anthropology (1946-1954), served on the President's Task Force on Indian Affairs (1965-1969), was Director of the Smithsonian Institute's Center for the Study of Man (1969-1977), served as President of the American Anthropological Association (1958-1959) and edited that Association's Journal, American Anthropologist (1953-1956). He was a pioneer in the field of action anthropology, published many academic articles and corresponded with researchers and activists.

Tax was an active organizer of the 1961 American Indian Chicago Conference (AICC, also called the American Indian Charter Convention or Conference), which produced the path-breaking Declaration of Indian Purpose, and worked to coordinate pan-tribal research on education. Tax was instrumental in the creation of the Native American Educational Services (NAES) in 1970 as an offshoot of earlier organizing efforts by Chicago Indians and their supporters.

Scope Note

This collection consists of Sol Tax's papers from his work for Native American Educational Services. The collection has been arranged into fourteen short series. All series have been arranged alphabetically and then chronologically.

Series I: American Indian Center, is composed mostly of board minutes for 1978-1980, as well as several reports and brochures in regards to the American Indian Center. Further references to this center are scattered through Tax's correspondence and papers in the American Indians and Chicago Indians series.

Series II: American Indian Chicago Conference 1961 (AICC), includes photocopies of drafts of the Declaration of Purpose, the originals of which are kept in the Smithsonian Archives.

Series III: American Indians, contains the bulk of Dr. Tax's Indian work, which contains mainly drafts and papers by students and colleagues. Dr. Tax evidently kept this material for reference in his own research and teaching. The series contains one folder on the National Indian Youth Council, which contains drafts of an undated proposal. Dr. Tax's own publications are found in this series, as well as in the Anthropology series. Some folders have been removed and filed separately in the Oversized Series due to their large size.

Series IV: Anthropology, contains material covering the span of Dr. Tax's career, with the bulk falling in the 1970s. The series contains mostly papers and drafts of other scholars, but it includes three folders of Dr. Tax's publications, including some drafts.

Series V: Carnegie Cross-Cultural Education Project, CCCE, contains several folders that include articles and other materials related to education, mostly from the 1960s, as well as reports from the project itself.

Series VI: Chicago Indians, contains copies of Dr. Tax's CAICOC plans, as well as correspondence dealing with Indian relocation in the 1950s and 1960s.

Series VII: Finding Aids, is comprised of two folders that contain acquisition lists, notes accompanying donations, and copies of Smithsonian and University of Chicago finding aids to Tax collections.

Series VIII: Fox Project, includes a documentary history of the project and some related letters and reports. The administrative folder contains financial records from the University of Chicago, including scholarship fund roles. The photographic plates of the documentary history of the Fox Project have been separated and moved to the Oversized series due to their size.

Series IX: Latin American, represents mostly Dr. Tax's early work in Mexico and Guatemala. However, later materials have been mixed into the folders, reflecting Dr. Tax's lifelong interest in Native peoples south of the United States.

Series X: Native American Educational Services, NAES, represents bits of administrative materials that Dr. Tax acquired concerning planning and operation of NAES. His files on the Community Board Training Project are also found here.

Series XI: Newberry Library, contains several folders made up almost entirely of published materials acquired by Dr. Tax.

Series XII: Newsletters/Newspapers, includes copies of newsletters and newspapers from the 1960s and 1970s published by or related to Native American affairs in North and South America.

Series XIII: Social Issues, represents Dr. Tax's interest and research in social issues other than American Indians, primarily education, urban poverty, and racism. It is divided into four subseries: Community Development, Education, Poverty, and Race and Ethnicity.

Series XIV: Oversized, contains material removed from other series and filed separately due to their size. It contains several maps and the negative plates of the Fox Project documentary history.
