Name of creator
Current Anthropology is a peer-reviewed academic journal published by the University of Chicago Press and sponsored by the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research. The journal was founded in 1959 by Anthropologist Sol Tax. It is devoted to research covering the full range of scholarship on human cultures and other primate species. Current Anthropology publishes research across all sub-disciplines of anthropology, including social, cultural, and physical anthropology, ethnology and ethnohistory, archaeology and prehistory, folklore, and linguistics. Cyril Belshaw of the UBC Department of Anthropology and Sociology was editor of Current Anthropology from 1975 to 1985.
Materials were originally donated to the University Archives by Cyril Belshaw as part of his fonds in 1985. With Belshaw's donation of the rest of his papers in 2015, the fonds were re-organized, and the Current Anthropology journal records were removed and established as separate fonds.
Scope and content
