Primary Creator: Abbye A. Gorin (b. 1927)

Extent: 2478.0 Items

Arrangement:

20 Hollinger boxes and 1 folder in Manuscript Flat File Case 1

Inventory Compiled in March of 1996 by Abbye A. Gorin, Ph.D. architectural researcher-writer, photographer

The collection is inventoried in alphabetical order by country, date, city or historic site, and political subdivision. Each entry indicates the storage box number and the country and date of each grouping, followed by the total count of negatives and prints in the group. The first number in the column to the left is the item number of the entry (when two or more images are mounted together there is only one entry number). "N" represents the number of negatives in each entry (when possible two or three exposures of each view were made). Identification of the camera used is indicated by "R" for Rolleiflex which produces 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 negatives and "L" for Leica which produces 35mm negatives. "P" represents a print count. A notched negative usually indicates the negative printed. After the identifying numbers, each print is described.

Box 15: Richard P. Schaedel Collection (N-04/P-55) Add to your cart.

Peru, ca. 1948 Printed from Dr. Schaedel's negatives, 1984 Identification guided by Dr. Schaedel (personal communication)

The following Andean photographs were taken by American pioneer anthropologist-archaeologist Richard P. Schaedel, Ph.D. whose research in Peru began with his dissertation, "An Analysis of Central Andean Stone Sculpture," Yale, 1952. Among Dr. Schaedel's wide network of Peruvian friends was Abraham Guillén. All of the photographs in this collection were made with a Rolleiflex borrowed from Guillén in 1947-48 and with a Kodak Reflex camera in 1948.

Dr. Schaedel lived and worked in the desert on the North Coast of Peru for fifteen years. Among his many achievements was the direction of the excavation of the whole Huaca El Dragón near Chan Chan. In April 1954 Life magazine (36(14):25-27) published the story of the expedition Dr. Schaedel led into the Andes twenty-five miles from Santiago, Chile to recover the frozen body of a noble Inca child. From the beginning of Dr. Schaedel's career he has demonstrated not only the importance of making social-scientific documentary photographs, but also how to use this kind of graphic information along with books and manuscripts. Dr. Schaedel has had a long teaching career at the University of Texas, Austin, and has published extensively. When his friend Paul Kosok died before finishing Life, Land and Water in Ancient Peru, Dr. Schaedel completed the book and carried it through publication (NY: Long Island University, 1965).

Dr. Schaedel helped Gorin to reconstruct Guillén's career. The following study images were printed by Gorin from the original 2-1/4 x 2-1/4 negatives in Dr. Schaedel's large private visual library. These prints were also used by Gorin in her 1984 field study of Chan Chan and the paper that followed, "Chan Chan, Peru (A.D. 950-1440)." To reproduce any photographs from this collection one must obtain permission from Dr. Schaedel.
