  • 1959-1984, predominant 1982-1984

The fonds consists mainly of slides, negatives, and other material relating to Sinhalese (Sri Lankan) and other South Asian masks held at numerous repositories worldwide, studied by Ames in the late 1950s and early 1980s. Subjects also include people, places, temples, ceremonies, and daily life in Sri Lanka, Bangkok, Cambodia, and Singapore. Numerous research articles reproduced by Ames, as well as travel brochures, are included. Material from student exhibits related to South Asian masks is also included.
The records have not been arranged into series since the entire fonds consists of closely related material.

Nuu-chah-nulth Photograph collection

  • 146
  • Collection
  • [192-?]

The collection consists of eight photographs likely taken in the Nuu-chah-nulth community in the 1920's. Some of the photographs may have been taken by Catherine, the daughter of an early Indian Agent named Augustus Cox. They include a number of images that appear to be a Samiilth or Saatlsaach ceremony, with K'aanaatla mimicking wolves. Some of these images are taken near a seaside village, which shows various types of structures and canoes. Other images taken on a beach show canoe runs, as well as two images of individuals in robes and headdresses. Another image shows a detailed view of two headdresses. There are also images of what seem to be preparations for a parade, with individuals dressed in costumes and decorated motorcars nearby.
