Pipes and Smoking Customs of the American Aborigines

Based on Material in the U.S. National Museum

Joseph D. McGuire (1898)

 Gustav's Library Vintage Reprint

The earliest and most concerted effort to bring together information concerning the use of tobacco among the North American Indians, McGuire's sought-after classic of American archaeology continues to be studied and referenced. 

McGuire received help on this monumental work from a veritable who's who of archaeological legends:  "Among those persons whom the writer desires particularly to mention are Drs. William H. Holmes, Otis T. Mason, Thomas Wilson, and Walter Hough, of the U. S. National Museum; Maj. J. W. Powell, Mr. W J McGee, Dr. J. Walter Fewkes, Mr. P. W. Hodge, and Mr. James Mooney, of the Bureau of American Ethnology; Dr. E. A. Barber and Mr. Clarence B. Moore, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Mr. Stewart Culin and Dr. Max Uhle, of the museum of the University of Pennsylvania; Mr. Andrew E. Douglass, of New York; Mr. David Boyle, of Toronto, Canada; Rev. W. M. Beauchamp, of Baldwinsville, New York; Col. Bennett H.1 Young, of Louisville, Kentucky; Gen. A. L. Pridemore, of Lee County, Virginia; Prof. John Robinson, of Salem, Massachusetts; Mr. Warren K. Moorehead, of the Ohio State University; Capt. H. L. Scott, of the U. S. Army, and Miss Alice Fletcher, of the Peabody Museum of American Archaeology and Ethnology, Cambridge, Massachusetts. Also my sincere thanks are due to Prof. P. H. Uhler and Col. William H. Love, of Baltimore, Maryland, and Dr. Frank H. Knowlton and Mr. Charles Schuchert, of Washington, D. C. "
