"Progress in Anthropology at the University of California"
American Anthropologist, vol. 8, no. 3, p. 483-492
This early account of progress toward an anthropology program at the University of California was delivered to the American Anthropological Association along with reports from more established departments including Harvard and Columbia, signaling Berkeley's early recognition as a major center for anthropology in the United States. Here Kroeber cites the primary "object of the department as research and the increase of knowledge" as he details investigations underway and announces the production of "an elaborate series of publications" to report that research.
