Michael M. Ames fonds (private records)

  • 6
  • Fonds
  • 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.
