Biographical note:
Charles V. Lucier was born in Clay Center, Kansas, in 1926. He came to Alaska in 1942 and studied at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Lucier was drafted into military service in 1945 and was stationed at Elmendorf Air Force Base. After his service, he resumed his studies and received a B.A. degree in biology in 1949. Lucier studied Eskimo culture and house ruins at Kotzebue Sound, and did a field study of the culture of the Noatak Eskimos in 1952. He taught in schools in Karluk and Talkeetna from 1952-1955 and worked as a technician in small mammal studies from 1955-1956. He returned to Anchorage in 1959 and later worked as a game biologist from 1963-1979. Lucier participated in the Cook Inlet Native Association and Urban Natives United dance groups (1965-1975), and was involved in recording folklore in the Seward Peninsula, Norton Sound, and Kotzebue Sound regions (1960-1978). He died in 2013.

Collection description:
The collection consists of archeology and anthropology related papers, correspondence, personal and family papers, as well as photographs, transparencies, slides, post cards, and audio recordings of Alaska Native songs, dances, and biographies. The archeology and anthropology related papers include notes, lists, and drawings, articles and drafts of articles which he authored, coauthored or with which he was otherwise involved, and an unpublished manuscript Lucier edited of an Alaskan Eskimo reindeer herder's life and stories. The correspondence consists primarily of incoming letters from friends, relatives, archeologists and anthropologists, as well as Alaska Natives. The personal and family papers include biographical materials, family correspondence, business, employment, school and other records, papers relating to his various interests and activities, and art and poetry by Charles Lucier and others. The photographs consist of family and personal photographs, archaeology/anthropology related photographs and slides, and post cards.
