ARTHUR AND ANNE CASWELL PARKER
Arthur was an American archaeologist, historian, folklorist, museologist, author and authority on Native American Indian culture. Parker was of cross British and Seneca Indian descent.
Growing up, Dr. Parker loved walking and exploring the outdoors. Anne also loved the outdoors and was an avid swimmer. He and his wife Anne organized hikes and scouting to explore the woods as well as writing extensively about his discoveries.
Arthur believed that the way to understanding each otherís cultures was through study and exploration. As he conducted expeditions to historical sites and recorded his findings, he contemplated the demands of civilization and how it left little time for outside exploration and education of nature. They spent their retirement years in their home overlooking Canandaigua Lake from where they spent much of their time exploring the outdoors.
Together Arthur and Anne founded the Genesee Valley Hiking Club (1928) and the Seneca Hiking Club.
The Arthur Caswell Parker Papers are located at the River Campus Libraries at the University of Rochester.
Greeting to all of our members.
